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.
Nov 8 - 12:39 PM

Julio Jones has a lower leg injury, and will be limited in practice this week.

It's not an uncommon occurrence for the Falcons' superstar wideout. Coach Dan Quinn didn't seem worried about Jones' Week 10 availability. Jones finally had his second 100-yard game of the season on Sunday, but also muffed a gimme 39-yard touchdown. The Cowboys are an attackable matchup for Week 11.
Nov 6 - 2:18 PM

Julio Jones caught 6-of-12 targets for 118 yards in the Falcons' 20-17, Week 9 loss to the Panthers.

Jones was getting open deep down the field at will in this one and catching a number of passes with multiple defenders around. He appeared to twist his ankle in the first quarter and was limping around on the sideline for a bit but ended up staying in the game. Things could have been much better for Jones and the Falcons if he had reeled in one of the easiest touchdowns of his life. There wasn't a defender within 10 yards of Jones in the end zone, and Matt Ryan laid a ball right in his lap in the fourth quarter on 4th-and-7 before Jones completely bungled what should have been a 39-yard score. The 12 targets were a nice sign, however, as it was just the third time this season Jones has drawn double-digit looks. He'll be a WR1 next week versus Dallas.
Nov 5 - 4:15 PM

Julio Jones caught 3-of-6 targets for 74 yards in the Falcons' Week 8 win over the Jets.

Morris Claiborne won his first-half battles with Julio on the perimeter. As Claiborne left in the third quarter with a foot injury, Jones got behind the defense for a 54-yard bomb. Next week's matchup with the Panthers will be yet another opportunity for the Falcons to funnel more targets in Julio's direction, something they've struggled to do in new OC Steve Sarkisian's first year as OC.
Oct 29 - 5:05 PM

Julio Jones caught 9-of-13 passes for 99 yards and a touchdown in Week 7 against the Patriots.

Jones had just two catches at halftime. He didn't come alive until late in the game with the Falcons in comeback mode. Jones couldn’t come down with his first two red-zone targets, but finally scored on a goal-line fade over CB Malcolm Butler. It was his first touchdown of the season. Even with Matt Ryan struggling, Jones will remain a WR1 in Week 8 against the Jets.
Oct 23 - 12:00 AM

Julio Jones (hip) was removed from the injury report.

Jones looked fully healthy despite getting just seven targets last week. The Falcons plan to increase his role going forward. Jones is a good bet to find the end-zone in Sunday's matchup with the Patriots.
Oct 18 - 5:21 PM

Falcons coach Dan Quinn said Monday he is not satisfied with Julio Jones' usage to this point in the season.

"No," said Quinn when asked if he's satisfied with how often Julio is getting the ball. "No, I'm not." Jones has topped 70 yards in three of his last four games, but he has one red-zone target and zero touchdowns on the year. He whipped Dolphins CB Xavien Howard badly on Sunday, yet was only targeted seven times. Jones draws another favorable matchup this week against the Patriots.
Oct 16 - 3:51 PM

Julio Jones played 45-of-57 offensive snaps Sunday in the Falcons' loss to the Dolphins.

That's a 78.9 percent snap rate, which is about normal for Julio. Jones finished with a respectable 72 yards in the loss but still saw a concerning lack of targets (just seven) while extending his touchdown drought to five games (six if you include the postseason). The hip flexor injury that sidelined Jones for much of Week 4 is no longer a concern, but the slumping Falcons need to do a much better job of getting their All-Pro receiver involved.
