Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones (hamstring) and running back Todd Gurley (knee) were limited in practice Wednesday.

Jones and Gurley did not play Sunday in the 43-6 win over the Raiders. The Falcons are hopeful that they’ll get both players back for Sunday’s rematch against the New Orleans Saints.

Kicker Younghoe Koo (right quad), wide receiver Calvin Ridley (foot/ankle), defensive end Dante Fowler (hamstring) and tight end Hayden Hurst (ankle) also were limited in practice.

Left guard James Carpenter (groin) and cornerback Kendall Sheffield (illness) did not practice. There will be an open competition for the starting left guard spot between Justin McCray, Matt Hennessy and Matt Gono. McCray played for Carpenter against the Raiders and opened practice with the first team Wednesday.
