Falcons' Jones and Turner probable for Sunday

Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones and running back Michael Turner are among 18 players listed as probable for Sunday's playoff clash with the New York Giants.

Jones, who has battled several injuries through his impressive rookie season, was a full participant in Friday's practice despite a thumb injury, while Turner was limited in practice with a groin ailment.

Also listed as probable for the NFC wild card game are back-up running back Jason Snelling (knee), wide receiver Roddy White (hip) and linebacker Sean Witherspoon (head).

Defensive end John Abraham and tight end Tony Gonzalez were full participants in practice Thursday and Friday after sitting out Wednesday's practice for non-injury related reasons and are also listed as probable.

Cornerback Brent Grimes (knee) was limited in Friday's practice and is listed as questionable, while linebacker Stephen Nicholas (toe) has not practiced all week and is doubtful for Sunday's game.
