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. Feb 7 - 12:04 PM

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.

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.

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.
Jan 31 - 12:23 PM

Julio Jones (toe) returned to a limited practice on Friday.

Jones wasn't expected to practice at all this week, so this is obviously an encouraging sign. Even with the toe injury, Jones still roasted Green Bay to the tune of 180 yards and two touchdowns in last week's NFC Championship Game. Jones should see plenty of Malcom Butler in Super Bowl LI.
Jan 27 - 1:14 PM

Speaking Thursday, Julio Jones (toe) said he's "feeling good."

Jones isn't practicing this week, but he will be out there for Super Bowl LI. By most indications, Jones is playing through a painful issue, but it didn't matter in the NFC Championship Game. He's going to be the focal point for a Patriots defense that has a number of players to be deeply worried about.
Jan 26 - 1:47 PM

Julio Jones (toe) will not practice during the bye week ahead of the Super Bowl.

No surprise. After shredding the Packers for 9-180-2 in the NFC Championship game, Jones will be ready to rock for SB 51 in Houston against the Patriots.
Jan 25 - 1:08 PM

Julio Jones caught 9-of-12 targets for 180 yards and two touchdowns in the Falcons' NFC Championship Game victory over the Packers.

Playing through what FOX's Jay Glazer described as three separate foot injuries, Jones dismantled the Packers' woeful secondary. The highlight was a 73-yard touchdown in the third quarter where Jones took ownership of Ladarius Gunter's soul. Jones is at far less than 100 percent health, but it hasn't been a problem on the field. With two weeks to heal up for Super Bowl LI, Jones is going to be a nightmare for either the Patriots or Steelers.
Jan 22 - 6:33 PM

FOX's Jay Glazer reports Julio Jones is playing through three separate foot injuries in Sunday's NFC Championship Game.

Per Glazer, Jones has two ligament issues in his toe in addition to a "mid-foot" ailment. Glazer says Jones is playing though a "lot" of pain. Jones caught two passes on Atlanta's opening drive, so the injuries haven't been an issue on the field yet.
