Julio Jones (calf) returned to practice Saturday.

Jones' participation was likely limited after sitting out Thursday and Friday, but coach Dan Quinn said he will play Monday night against the Saints barring any setbacks. Even at less than 100 percent, he is a must-start at New Orleans.

Falcons OC Kyle Shanahan plans to keep spreading the ball around in the passing game.

"You don’t have to force it into tough looks. You can go where the coverage tells you," Shanahan said. "You might not have the same numbers for [Julio Jones] and stuff, but I think the result ends up improving the offense." Julio has nine catches for 172 yards and two scores already this year, but he is on pace for just 104 targets after seeing 203 last season. That pace will certainly pick up, but it seems clear he is not going to be the target monster he was the last two years. Even so, he will be an elite WR1 if he suits up Monday night.

Julio Jones (calf, ankle) did not practice Friday.

While he hasn't practiced each of the past two days, coach Dan Quinn has expressed optimism about Jones' status for Monday night. We'd love to see him practice on Saturday, but by all accounts he should be good to go for Week 3. Despite the minor injuries, Jones is maybe the top WR1 of the week.
Sep 23 - 1:01 PM

Falcons coach Dan Quinn was optimistic talking about Julio Jones' (calf) status Thursday.

"He’s making good progress as we are going," Quinn said. "We kind of just see his arrow keep going up as the week goes. ... Having the extra day this week has been a real plus for him, no doubt about it." Jones' injury isn't believed to be serious despite Thursday's missed practice. Owners can keep him locked in as an elite WR1 for a mouthwatering matchup.

Julio Jones (calf) didn't practice on Thursday.

He was listed as a DNP despite attending the team's walkthrough. The Falcons play on Monday night this week so it's not time to panic yet. He's dealing with a bruised calf. Assuming he suits up and plays his usual snaps, Jones will be an elite play against the Saints' swiss cheese secondary.
Sep 22 - 2:15 PM

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution's D. Orlando Ledbetter reports Julio Jones is dealing with a "minor calf bruise."

The injury was reported as a strain, but Ledbetter reports Jones suffered the issue when someone fell on his leg during last week's game. He is expected to be limited on Thursday, but the injury does not look like it will affect his availability for Monday night's clash with the Saints. Jones will be an elite WR1 in that game.

Julio Jones is dealing with a calf strain.

The injury isn't considered serious and Jones should be fine for next week's division battle against New Orleans. The Falcons play on Monday night, which gives Jones an extra day to recover. The 27-year-old is off to another strong start with nine catches for 172 yards and two touchdowns over his first two games.
Sep 19 - 1:53 PM

The Falcons say Julio Jones (leg) is "expected to be fine" despite missing the final drive of Atlanta's Week 2 win over Oakland.

Jones walked out of the locker room "without issue," and only "jammed" his leg. ESPN Falcons reporter Vaughn McClure reports Jones' injury is not related to the ankle injury Jones suffered in the preseason, and which he re-tweaked in Week 1. It's great news for Julio's fantasy owners with the Saints on deck.
Sep 18 - 9:02 PM

Julio Jones caught 5-of-5 targets for 106 yards and a touchdown in the Falcons' Week 2 win over the Raiders.

Unfortunately, Jones appeared to re-tweak his troublesome ankle on a 20-yard catch late in the game and stood on the sideline during the Falcons' final drive. The injury has bugged Jones since the preseason and will be worth monitoring closely ahead of Atlanta's Week 3 trip to New Orleans. Jones only saw five targets on Sunday because the Raiders were double teaming him. He obviously made the most of them, most notably catching a 46-yard bomb in heavy coverage.

Julio Jones and Mohamed Sanu are both active for Week 2 at Oakland.

Both suffered Week 1 ankle injuries, but practiced fully on Friday. The Falcons' Week 2 inactives are LB De'Vondre Campbell, SS Keanu Neal, RB Terron Ward, OL Mike Person, DE Brooks Reed, OL Wes Schweitzer, and TE Joshua Perkins.
Sep 18 - 3:00 PM

Julio Jones (ankle) returned to a full practice on Friday.

So did Mohamed Sanu (ankle). Neither of them are on the injury report for Week 2. Julio has a great matchup waiting against an Oakland secondary that yielded more than 400 passing yards last week. Julio is a top-shelf WR1.
Sep 16 - 2:57 PM

Julio Jones (ankle) will be limited at Thursday's practice.

Coach Dan Quinn said Jones and Mohamed Sanu (ankle) will get about half their usual reps on Thursday. The hope is that both will return to a full practice on Friday. There's no concern over Jones' status for Week 2 against the Raiders. He's No. 3 in RotoPat's Week 2 wide receiver rankings.
Sep 15 - 1:10 PM

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

Mohamed Sanu (ankle) was also limited Wednesday. Both players turned their ankles in the Week 1 loss to the Bucs, but Jones and Sanu continued to play. They should be fine for Week 2 against the Raiders.
Sep 14 - 12:50 PM

Julio Jones said after Sunday's loss to Tampa Bay that he is "not worried" about his left ankle injury.

Julio aggravated the injury against the Bucs after initially going down in Atlanta's third preseason game. "You're never going to be 100 percent anymore," Jones said. "I've played through things. It's nothing that's going to hold me back from going out there and producing or doing what I do." It sounds like he will be out there for Week 2 at Oakland, where the Raiders were forced to bench CB Sean Smith in Sunday's loss to New Orleans for getting torched by Brandin Cooks and Willie Snead. The Falcons are still likely to hold Jones out of some practice reps this week.
