Tampa, FL (Sports Network) - Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones is active for Sunday's game against Tampa Bay.

Jones was listed as questionable on Friday's injury report because of a sore ankle that has hampered his play each of the past two games. He has not yet missed a game because of the injury, which occurred during a loss to New Orleans two weeks ago, but exited last Sunday's game against Arizona in the fourth quarter.

The 2011 first-round draft pick managed just three catches for 33 yards against the Cardinals and had 75 yards on four grabs in the New Orleans game.

A pair of defensive starters, linebacker Sean Weatherspoon and cornerback Asante Samuel, are also active after being questionable on the injury report.

Weatherspoon, who's dealing with an ankle sprain, hasn't played since Atlanta's Week 9 victory over Dallas, while Samuel left last week's game with a right shoulder injury.
