Tweetcap: Julio Jones, Matt Bryant return to practice, ready for Cowboys


FLOWERY BRANCH -- Here are the highlights from Friday's practice:

Black jerseys for teammate of the week: Sean Weatherspoon, Brian Hill, Nick Williams and J'Terius Jones. "Sean Weatherspoon was one who set it off on Wednesday," Falcons coach Dan Quinn said.

On Ezekiel Elliott not playing for the Cowboys: "I recognize the question....but we are pretty pissed about how we can play better. We didn't put a whole lot of information about the opponent and how that would be a factor. We recognize the guy is a good player, don't get me wrong. I can't tell you enough about how much our focus was going to be about us and our way and style that we want to play."

Injury report: Wide receiver Julio Jones (ankle) and kicker Matt Bryant (right calf) returned to practice and are set to play against Dallas.
