Julio Jones caught 7-of-9 targets for 139 yards and a touchdown in the Falcons' Week 6 loss to the Seahawks.
Doing battle with the Legion of Boom, Jones won, chewing up yards as he got schemed into space by OC Kyle Shanahan. Jones' score was a 36-yarder where Shanahan used a tight end to bait Richard Sherman off his star receiver. Jones could have had even more yardage, but Sherman got away with likely pass interference on the final meaningful play of the game. Jones is a man amongst boys, even against the best defenses in the league. The Chargers' injury-ruined secondary won't have a prayer against Jones in Atlanta next week. Oct 16 - 7:57 PM

Julio Jones describes his knee "injury" as "general soreness."

Jones returned to practice Thursday, getting in a limited session. His knee isn't a concern for Sunday's game against the Seahawks, but Richard Sherman is. Jones is on the WR1/2 borderline for Week 6.

Julio Jones (knee) will return to practice on Thursday.

Coach Dan Quinn expects him to be limited. Jones was a DNP on Wednesday but the Falcons were just managing his reps. He'll be matched up with Richard Sherman, but Jones remains a must-start Sunday against Seattle.
Oct 13 - 3:42 PM

ESPN Seahawks reporter Sheil Kapadia believes it is "likely" Richard Sherman will shadow Julio Jones this week.

Sherman followed Brandon Marshall around the field Week 4, so it would be surprising if he did not do the same with Jones coming to town this week. Marshall was able to make a few plays on Sherman, and Julio is a must-start every time he touches the field. Still, it is a downgrade for Jones.

Updating an earlier report, Julio Jones (knee) didn't practice on Wednesday.

Jones was expected to be a limited participant but was held out instead. His absence was probably precautionary but obviously the situation bears monitoring. Jones has a difficult matchup with Seahawks corner Richard Sherman this week but remains a must-start when active.
Oct 12 - 6:14 PM

Julio Jones (knee, shin) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

Both the knee and shin issues are new after Jones battled calf and ankle ailments earlier in the season. None of it is expected to cost Jones his Week 6 availability in a tough test with the Seahawks' secondary.
Oct 12 - 3:44 PM

Julio Jones caught 2-of-6 targets for 29 yards Week 5 against the Broncos.

Jones was not expected to recreate his 300-yard performance in Denver, but he should have had a bigger day. Matt Ryan missed him on what should have been two long plays in the first half, and the Falcons sat on the ball with a big lead after the break. It was a tough letdown after a massive performance, but Jones is fine. He will be worth starting even in a tough spot in Seattle next week.
Oct 9 - 7:21 PM

Julio Jones caught 12-of-15 targets for 300 yards and a touchdown in Atlanta's Week 4 win over the Panthers.

The 300-yard game was just the sixth in NFL history. Jones was 36 yards shy of tying Flipper Anderson's single-game record. Jones raged a path of utter annihilation against the Panthers' Josh Norman-less secondary, ripping up James Bradberry, Bene Benwikere and Daryl Worley. Jones quickly got Bradberry benched, though Bradberry was playing through a toe issue. Perhaps the most stunning part of Jones' afternoon — where he was obviously routinely running free — is that Matt Ryan left some yards on the field, under-throwing Jones on a pair of potential 61-yard touchdowns. Ryan found Jones the second time, but "only" for a 53-yard gain. Jones' touchdown was a 75-yarder. He turned a simple post into a warpath run with a stiff arm. On pace for 88/1,952/12, Jones gets the Broncos next.
Oct 2 - 4:20 PM

Julio Jones is active for Week 4 against the Panthers.

Jones was removed from the injury report on Friday. He's a top-three option for Week 4. Inactive for the Falcons are S Dashon Goldson, LB Paul Worrilow, LB De'Vondre Campbell, OG Mike Person, OG Wes Schweitzer, TE Josh Perkins and LB Courtney Upshaw.
Oct 2 - 11:35 AM

Julio Jones (calf) practiced fully on Friday.

He's no longer on the injury report and will start versus Carolina.
Sep 30 - 2:25 PM

Julio Jones (calf) remained limited at Thursday's practice.

The Falcons are just managing his reps. Jones will be fine for Sunday's tilt with Carolina. He should be in for a bounce-back game after being held to just 16 yards in Monday night's win over the Saints.
Sep 29 - 4:35 PM

Julio Jones (calf) was a limited participant at Wednesday's practice.

The Falcons went light on Wednesday coming off Monday night's win, but it's encouraging to see Jones out there the first day of the practice week. He'll look to rebound from last week's one-catch effort Sunday against the Panthers.
Sep 28 - 2:26 PM

The Falcons expect Julio Jones (calf) to practice more in Week 4.

Jones got in two DNPs and a "limited" before catching one pass for 16 yards against the Saints. It was a brutal letdown for fantasy owners, but one Jones escaped without setbacks. He'll be an elite WR1 for Sunday's game against the Panthers.
Sep 27 - 3:26 PM

Julio Jones was held to one catch for 16 yards on seven targets in the Falcons' 45-32, Week 3 win over the Saints on Monday night.

Jones' seven targets were a team-high, but he and Matt Ryan just couldn't connect on much of anything on a night the Falcons' running backs -- Tevin Coleman and Devonta Freeman -- combined for 296 yards and four touchdowns dominated on offense. Jones came into the game with calf and ankle ailments, and he wasn't in on every offensive snap, but didn't look to be any worse for the wear. The Saints simply sold out to stop Jones, and the rest of the offense made them pay. Jones will look to bounce back next week at home against the Panthers.
Sep 27 - 12:06 AM

Julio Jones (calf, ankle) is active and "good to go" for Monday night's Week 3 game against the Saints.

There was never much doubt despite the questionable tag. Jones may not be 100 percent, but he came into the week as the elite WR1 play against a Saints defense that lost its Nos. 1 and 2 cornerbacks to injury Weeks 1 and 2. Hybrid S/slot CB Kenny Vaccaro (ankle) is also inactive.
