Falcons WR Julio Jones Set to Be Back at Practice on Tuesday

i

Falcons coach Dan Quinn said wide receiver Julio Jones, who suffered a minor injury on the first day of training camp Thursday, will return to full practice Tuesday, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

Jones, who was pictured rolling a ball under his left foot Saturday, took part in a portion 11-on-11 drills Sunday. He caught the first two passes of the two-minute session at the end of practice. Jones was held out of 1-on-1 drills and sat out the first play of 11-on-11 before making an appearance.

“Not necessarily a pitch count,” Quinn said of Jones’ Sunday regimen. “We wanted to have probably quarter to half of him out today, make sure tomorrow off, and then we’ll be back into full for Tuesday.”

The Falcons have Monday off, giving Jones an added day of rest. He expressed little concern about the injury despite being limited for four days.

“I feel great,” Jones said Saturday, his scheduled day to address the media. “Definitely nothing to worry about. Precautionary reasons, but I’m good to go: 100 percent. Just taking it slow. I’m just so explosive. I always get something that’s tight or something. It’s good. I just keep getting treatment and stretching it out. Eating right. I’m hydrating. But I’m good. It’s nothing serious or anything like that that’s going to prevent me from playing.”

The Falcons are obviously a way better team with Jones, and it’s good that he’s close to getting back on the field very soon. Don’t forget if you’re looking to bet on the birds this season, use the William Hill promo code and get in on the action for all the Falcons games in 2016.
