Both the New Orleans Saints (10-4) and the Atlanta Falcons (9-5) were missing some key players at practice today due to injury.

The arch rivals are preparing for their Christmas Eve showdown this Sunday at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome at noon.

Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones (ankle) didn't practice, but is expected to play Sunday.

The other players on the injury report will have a better idea of their status after tomorrow and Friday's practice.
