The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports Julio Jones (foot surgery) is expected to be "full strength" for the start of training camp.
Jones' initial timeline had him questionable for the start of camp, but apparently a more optimistic estimate has emerged. Either way, the superstar figures to be babied through the summer, and perhaps even held out of the preseason. The only goal is having Jones ready for Week 1, which he should be. Mar 23 - 1:49 PM

Julio Jones tweeted his foot surgery "was a success."

The tweet confirms he did undergo surgery after a weekend of reports and counter reports. The surgery was to remove a bunion from Jones' foot and will sideline him 4-5 months. That timeline could leave him limited at the start of training camp, but there is no reason to worry about Julio's Week 1 status.
Mar 6 - 8:05 PM

Updating an earlier report, Julio Jones will not undergo foot surgery on Monday.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported Friday that Jones would go under the knife on Monday, but that's been refuted by several beat reporters. Instead, Jones will meet with Dr. Robert Anderson Monday to determine if he needs a bunion removed from his foot. Surgery is still possible, but that decision hasn't been made yet.

Julio Jones will undergo foot surgery on Monday.

It's considered a minor procedure and shouldn't affect Jones' availability for training camp. Jones battled a sprained toe last season. The 28-year-old continues to be among the top receivers in all of football and should be a consensus first-round pick in all fantasy leagues this summer.
Mar 3 - 2:30 PM

Falcons coach Dan Quinn said it is still unclear if Julio Jones (toe) will undergo surgery.

Jones will visit with a doctor next week. "We’ll make a determination after that," Quinn said. "It hasn’t been determined when or if [he will have surgery] at this point. But it’s something that he is definitely going to consider." Jones was hampered by a toe injury over the second half of 2016, but he still dominated. We should have a better idea of his outlook next week.
Mar 1 - 6:15 PM

Julio Jones said he will have his troublesome toe evaluated next month to determine if he needs surgery.

Jones was still dominant despite dealing with the toe issue in the playoffs, but it will not be surprising if he is forced to go under the knife following the evaluation. Surgery could knock Jones out for the entirety of the offseason program and limit him early in training camp, but there is zero concern about his Week 1 availability.

Julio Jones caught 4-of-4 targets for 87 yards in Super Bowl 51.

The Patriots dominated time of possession and double teamed Julio on most obvious passing downs, explaining his low target total. He still came through with a highlight-reel toe-tapping sideline catch in the fourth quarter that at the time seemingly put the game away, but the Falcons took sacks and committed penalties that forced them to punt and contributed to an epic meltdown. The NFC's best receiver, Julio may need offseason turf toe surgery after gutting out a painful injury in the second half of the season. Jones turns 28 in three days.
Feb 5 - 11:24 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Julio Jones could require offseason surgery on his sprained toe.

Jones will undergo a full evaluation after the season to determine whether surgery is necessary. Per Rapoport, Jones is dealing with torn ligaments and other turf-toe symptoms. Jones has also been playing with a sprained ankle. It would take "months" for Jones to recover from surgery, though it wouldn't jeopardize his status for the start of 2017. As we saw in the NFC Championship two weeks ago, Jones at less than 100 percent is still better than almost any receiver in football. Containing him will be New England's biggest challenge in Super Bowl LI.
Feb 5 - 8:21 AM

Julio Jones (toe) wasn't listed on the Falcons' final injury report for Super Bowl LI against the Patriots.

Neither was Alex Mack (fibula). Both were limited at Friday's practice but will be all systems go for what should be an epic battle Sunday in Houston. Jones went berserk in his last game, dusting the Packers for 180 yards and two touchdowns. He'll be even healthier for this week's game. We expect the Patriots to defend Julio with a combination of Eric Rowe and Logan Ryan rather than Malcolm Butler. Whomever is on Julio will almost certainly receive safety and/or linebacker help.
Feb 3 - 3:03 PM

Julio Jones (toe) remained limited in Thursday's practice.

Jones' practice designation is meaningless. He will be full go against the Patriots for Super Bowl LI.
Feb 2 - 5:42 PM

Falcons coach Dan Quinn said Julio Jones (toe) should be pretty much a full-go for Thursday's practice.

Jones was listed as limited on Wednesday, but the receiver said he has been working without limitations. It is possible the Falcons continue to list Jones as limited the rest of the week, but there is zero concern about his availability. Quinn said it would take an "act of nature" to keep Julio out of the Super Bowl.

Falcons coach Dan Quinn said it would take an "act of nature" for Julio Jones (toe) not to be ready for the Super Bowl.

Jones was listed as limited on Wednesday, but he says he is going full go in practice. "He’s healthy," Quinn said. "It would take an awful lot, an act of nature, for him not to be 100 percent rolling on Sunday." There is no doubt about his availability.

Feb 2 - 9:15 AM

Julio Jones (toe) was limited at Wednesday's practice.

Jones was expected to be full-go this week. The Falcons are just managing his reps. Jones will be all systems go for the Super Bowl.
Feb 1 - 5:36 PM

Julio Jones (toe) says he will be a full participant in this week's practices, and will be full go for Super Bowl LI.

Jones believes "nothing will be an issue on game day." Jones probably isn't at 100 percent, but it scarcely mattered in his NFC Championship Game demolition of the Packers. The Falcons present a variety of matchup nightmares for the Patriots, but none loom larger than Jones.
Jan 31 - 1:52 PM

Falcons coach Dan Quinn said Julio Jones (toe) "looked great" in Monday's practice.

Jones and C Alex Mack (ankle) got in limited sessions Monday. Jones surprisingly got in some limited work last week and was not listed on the initial injury report. He will be all systems go for the Super Bowl.
