Sheffield, Harris declared out for Dallas game; Davidson is questionable

Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones has been dealing with a left hamstring injury for a couple of weeks, but there is “low concern” level heading into the second game of the season, Sunday against Dallas.

“Yes, for a couple of weeks, he’s been dealing with it,” Falcons coach Dan Quinn said Friday. “His strength is good to go. He can play certainly with it. My concern level is low as long as his performance and strength feels right, it does, so that helps.”

Jones appeared to suffer the injury in the final scrimmage, but he was not on the injury report last week. He was limited in practice along with defensive tackle Marlon Davidson (knee), left tackle Jake Matthews (knee), defensive tackle Deadrin Senat (ankle) on Thursday.

Jones was limited Friday. Running back Todd Gurley was given a rest day Friday.

Cornerback Kendall Sheffield, defensive end Charles Harris (ankle) missed the opener against Seattle and were declared out of the Dallas game.

Matthews was listed as questionable and Davidson as doubtful.
