The status of top receiver Julio Jones remains in doubt as he battles a turf toe injury. Jones didn’t practice Wednesday, but coach Dan Quinn maintained a positive outlook, saying Jones could return to practice Thursday. Turf toe, however, is an injury that requires some rest, so it seems logical to hold Jones out of Sunday’s game against the Rams. Then again, Quinn views Jones as a fast healer, so we’ll see how this all unfolds.
Middle linebacker Luke Kuechly was one of three Carolina players limited in practice because of a concussion. The other two were S Kurt Coleman and CB Daryl Worley. But the primary interest was on Kuechly, who hadn’t practiced since suffering the concussion in a Nov. 17 game against New Orleans. Coach Ron Rivera said Kuechly brought “energy” to the field and said how Kuechly responds Thursday will be the next step in determining whether he plays Sunday against San Diego.

Others receiving votes: At home off the bye, the Titans have had two weeks to prepare for an offense that will likely have a banged-up Trevor Siemian under center. Since Week 5, only the Browns have seen more D/ST points scored against them than the Broncos. … It may sound crazy, but over the past four weeks, no defense has scored more than Tampa Bay’s 60 points.
Dallas Cowboys: Opposing defenses have scored more than five points against the Giants just once in the past seven games.

Philadelphia Eagles: In the past six weeks, they’ve totaled just six points. Against one of the hottest offenses in the league, in a must-win spot? No, thank you.
