Julio Jones (toe) remained sidelined Thursday, but insisted he'll be ready for Sunday's NFC Championship Game.
Jones probably won't practice Friday, either, but there's no question he'll be out there against the Packers. The question is how effective he will be after aggravating his toe injury last Saturday. Jan 19 - 1:20 PM

Julio Jones (toe) is not practicing Wednesday.

As expected. Jones did go through the walkthrough portion on Wednesday, but the Falcons aren't going to push him to practice after he aggravated his sprained toe against Seattle. Jones will play against the Packers on Sunday.
Jan 18 - 1:23 PM

Coach Dan Quinn said Julio Jones (toe) will be "ready to rock" for the NFC Championship game against the Packers.

Quinn did say Jones' reps will be managed this week. Jones re-injured his sprained toe in the Divisional Round win over the Seahawks, playing a season-low 58.3 percent of the snaps. But the Falcons have expressed zero concern about Jones' availability for next Sunday. Expect him to be limited in practice this week before playing next weekend.

Julio Jones played just 42-of-72 offensive snaps in Saturday's Divisional Round win over the Seahawks.

He was on the field for 58.3 percent of the team's snaps, his lowest percentage of the season. Jones re-injured his toe on Saturday but still managed six catches for 67 yards and a touchdown. It's a testament to Matt Ryan and the Falcons' explosive offense that they were still able to handily defeat an experienced Seattle team with their best receiver sidelined for nearly half the game. Julio won't be 100 percent, but he'll be ready to roll in next week's NFC Championship game against either the Cowboys or Packers.
Jan 15 - 9:47 AM

Coach Dan Quinn said the Falcons have "no concern" about the foot injury Julio Jones suffered in the fourth quarter of Saturday's win.

Quinn said Jones "could have come back if needed." The Falcons made quick work of the Seahawks and didn't need to push it with their fragile star receiver. Julio's feet and toes are constant sources of concern, but he should be in no danger of missing next week's NFC Championship Game.
Jan 14 - 8:20 PM

Julio Jones aggravated his foot/toe injury in the fourth quarter of Atlanta's Divisional Round win over the Seahawks.

Jones pulled up gimpy earlier in the second half, but stayed in the game. He was then absent as Atlanta worked to kill the clock. He caught six passes for 67 yards and a touchdown before going down, winning matchups with Richard Sherman. FOX's Pam Oliver deemed Jones' departure precautionary, but it's a huge storyline to watch ahead of next Sunday's NFC Championship Game. The Falcons' offense is a well-oiled machine, but missing Jones could easily be the difference between making the Super Bowl or missing it.
Jan 14 - 7:35 PM

Julio Jones (toe) is practicing fully for the Divisional Round.

Jones should be close to 100 percent coming off Atlanta's bye. He doesn't have a great matchup but is still a strong DFS play. Jones had a 7/139/1 line against Seattle back in Week 6.
Jan 11 - 5:14 PM

Julio Jones caught 7-of-9 targets for 96 yards and one touchdown in the Falcons' Week 17 win over the Saints.

A week after playing just 39-of-63 snaps in his return from a toe sprain, Jones played 49-of-62 snaps in this one. His touchdown was a tremendous one-yarder in the back left corner of the end zone with a beautiful toe-tap at the end of it. Jones looks healthy heading into the playoffs and will get a first-round bye to get even closer to 100 percent. Look out for this offense.
Jan 1 - 9:08 PM

Falcons coach Dan Quinn indicated Julio Jones (toe) will not be on a snap count in Week 17 against the Saints.

"He looked good over the last couple of days, so I'm not going to monitor him," said Quinn. "If it gets sore, then we'll take him out. He looked good in practice today. He looked strong. He looked explosive." Julio's floor isn't necessarily safe, but he is an enticing tournament option in DFS this week. Taylor Gabriel (foot) isn't playing, opening up a few additional touches for the rest of the offense. Julio should have a much bigger role than last week.

Falcons OC Kyle Shanahan expects Julio Jones (toe) to be healthier for Week 17.

"He's still getting back," Shanahan said Thursday. "He definitely wasn't 100 percent (on Christmas Eve)." Jones may not see his normal complement of snaps as the Falcons keep one eye on the playoffs, but he'll be a high-upside option for Week 17 daily fantasy tournaments.
Thu, Dec 29, 2016 03:52:00 PM

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

Jones returned to the field last week after a two-game absence, nabbing four passes for 70 yards. Expect the Falcons to be careful with him again this week.
Wed, Dec 28, 2016 04:01:00 PM

Julio Jones said he was "trying to be careful" in his return from a toe injury Week 16 against the Panthers.

Jones played just 62 percent of the offensive snaps against Carolina, his lowest percentage of the season. Jones seemed to come out of the game unscathed, however, and did plenty of damage while he was on the field. With the Falcons able to lock up the No. 2 seed with a win over the Saints, Jones should be out there again this week, although it would not be surprising if he played limited snaps.

Julio Jones caught 4-of-7 targets for 60 yards in the Falcons' Week 16 win over the Panthers.

Jones sat out a few more plays than usual, but he did not look any worse for wear against Carolina. He could have had a bigger game, as well, but he was ruled down on a long catch-and-run in the third quarter and Matt Ryan put too much air under what should have been a couple long catches. Even so, the Falcons will take the win and Julio coming out of the game unscathed. He should be ready for a big role next week against the Saints.
Sat, Dec 24, 2016 04:45:00 PM

FOX Sports' Jay Glazer said Julio Jones could be limited to "about 45, 50" snaps Week 16 against the Panthers.

Glazer did say Jones is not on a pitch count, and the coaching staff "will just let him go" if he looks healthy. Even if he is limited to 75% of the offensive snaps, Jones is a must-start option against the Panthers.
Sat, Dec 24, 2016 12:55:00 PM

Julio Jones (toe) is active for Week 16 against the Panthers.

Jones practiced in full Friday and was left off the final injury report. He might not be at full health, but he seems to be nearing it. Jones is a high-end WR1 against a defense he shredded for 300 yards in Week 4. Atlanta declared Austin Hooper (knee), LB De'Vondre Campbell (concussion), WR Nick Williams, RB Terron Ward, CB Blidi Wreh-Wilson, S Dashon Goldson, and OT Wes Schweitzer inactive for Week 16.
