Julio Jones caught 5-of-11 targets for 98 yards in the Falcons' Week 14 win over the Saints.
Jones had an eventful night squaring off Marshon Lattimore, drawing a penalty on the Saints' rookie while getting called for a pass interference infraction of his own. The call on Jones was exceedingly soft. Jones was the target on two of Matt Ryan's three interceptions, but neither pick was Jones' fault. They were bad decisions by his quarterback. After tonight's titanic struggle with one of the game's best young corners, Jones will find the sailing smoother in Week 15 against the Bucs. Dec 7 - 11:40 PM

Julio Jones hauled in 2-of-6 targets for 24 yards in the Falcons' Week 13 loss to the Vikings.

Coming off a 12/253/2 explosion last week, Jones was shut down by Xavier Rhodes in this one. His first catch did not come until the second quarter, and aside from a powerful 11-yard run in which he broke a few tackles, he was almost silent after halftime. Jones has another tough draw on Thursday night against the Saints, but he should fare much better. He remains a must-start WR1.
Dec 3 - 4:48 PM

Julio Jones (ankle) was removed from the Week 13 injury report.

Jones was limited in practice this week. He's still dealing with an ankle injury, but it won't impact his snaps. Jones should see a lot of Xavier Rhodes in Sunday's Vikings matchup.
Dec 1 - 5:30 PM

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

Jones hasn't been getting much practice time with ankle/knee injuries, but his Week 13 status isn't a concern. Even with Xavier Rhodes likely to shadow him, Jones is a locked-in WR1.
Nov 29 - 4:44 PM

Julio Jones caught 12-of-15 targets for 253 yards and two touchdowns in the Falcons' Week 12 win over the Bucs, adding a 15-yard rush.

Jones entered Week 12 with just one touchdown and zero 120-yard games. The rushing attempt was his first of the season. With the Bucs giving Jones a laughable amount of cushion, he ripped seams in their "defense" all day. Touchdown No. 1 was a 51-yard bomb delivered by Mohamed Sanu. Sanu took a wild cat snap, faked a handoff and calmly delivered a rainbow to a tightly-covered Jones. Score No. 2 was a 25-yarder from Matt Ryan where Jones did most of the work, using fancy footwork to dive for the pylon. Amazingly, the 253 yards receiving were only the third most of Jones' career. He gets Xavier Rhodes and the Vikings for Week 13.
Nov 26 - 3:57 PM

Julio Jones (ankle, knee) wasn't listed on the Falcons' final injury report for Week 12 against the Buccaneers.

Jones was limited at practice this week, though his status for Sunday's game was never in doubt. It's been a frustrating season for Jones, who has only topped 100 yards twice with one touchdown. Luckily for him he gets a cake matchup against a Bucs team that has allowed the second-most passing yards in football this year. Fire him up as a WR1 wherever you have him.
Nov 24 - 3:59 PM

Julio Jones (ankle, knee) was limited at Wednesday's practice.

Jones has been dealing with ankle issues for weeks, but the knee injury is new. It's possible the Falcons are managing his reps coming off a Monday night game. Even at less than 100 percent, Jones has a blowup Week 12 matchup with the Bucs.

Nov 22 - 4:44 PM

Julio Jones caught 5-of-10 targets for 71 yards in the Falcons' Week 11 win over the Seahawks.

It was another quiet night for Jones, as he sat on a 3-35 line much of the night before making a 29-yard grab in the second half to extend a drive. He also made a sick sideline catch early on, snatching the ball at its highest point and somehow getting both feet in bounds with two defenders on him. The touchdowns still aren't there, but Jones will be a WR1 next week against the Bucs.
Nov 21 - 12:10 AM

Julio Jones (ankle) will be limited on Thursday.

Despite the limited tag, there does not seem to be any concern about Jones suiting up on Monday night. With Richard Sherman out for the season, Jones is a top-five option this week.
Nov 16 - 12:28 PM

Julio Jones caught 6-of-8 passes for 57 yards in Week 10 against Dallas.

Jones led the Falcons in targets, but couldn't get anything downfield with Matt Ryan. He was held out of the end-zone for the third straight week. It's a disappointing game with Ryan throwing two red-zone touchdowns. With Richard Sherman sidelined, Jones should rebound in Week 11 at Seattle.
Nov 12 - 7:45 PM

Julio Jones (ankle) is active for Week 10 against Dallas.

Jones was rested at practice with his ankle issue, but wasn't listed on the final injury report. He looked healthy in pre-game warmups and should play his normal snaps. Jones has a high ceiling this week in a potential shootout. The Falcons inactives are WR Nick Williams, DB Sharrod Neasman, CB Blidi Wreh-Wilson, LB/S Duke Riley, OL Sean Harlow, and RT Austin Pasztor.
Nov 12 - 3:04 PM

Julio Jones (ankle) will play in Week 10 against Dallas.

Jones isn't listed on the injury report despite only getting in one practice this week. He should play his normal snaps in a blowup spot with the Cowboys secondary. Jones hasn't scored since Week 7, but has 70-plus yards in four straight games.
Nov 10 - 4:35 PM

Julio Jones (ankle) returned to practice Friday.

He sat out Wednesday and Thursday, but a Friday return bodes well for his Sunday afternoon status. We should get his official designation shortly.
Nov 10 - 11:59 AM

Julio Jones (ankle) remained sidelined at Thursday's practice.

Jones suffered the injury in Week 9, but still finished with a season-high 118 yards in a loss to Carolina. With the Falcons fading fast in the NFC South, Jones could be pushed to play at less than 100 percent, though it's hard to envision him suiting up against Dallas if he can't get in at least a limited practice on Friday. If he sits, it would open up more targets for Mohamed Sanu, Taylor Gabriel and perhaps even tight end Austin Hooper.
Nov 9 - 5:19 PM

Julio Jones (leg) is not practicing on Wednesday.

Jones appeared to suffer a high-ankle sprain in the Week 9 loss to the Panthers but was able to return and have a solid game with six catches for 118 yards. He could have had a monster day if Matt Ryan hadn't overthrown him on a sure touchdown in the first quarter and then Jones dropped a 39-yard score in the fourth frame. Consider Jones questionable for Week 10.
