Falcons WR Julio Jones joined team drills Wednesday for the 1st time in training camp, according to ESPN's Vaughn McClure. More importantly, it marked his 1st full practice since the latest procedure on his left foot back in March. Jones said through the offseason that the operation wasn't a big deal, but it'll be nice to see him prove it on the field over the next few weeks. Of course, we already didn't have any trouble taking him in the middle of Round 1 of fantasy football drafts this year.

Falcons HC Dan Quinn said Wednesday that WR Julio Jones (foot) will be limited to begin training camp. That he'll be out there at all this early on is a good sign. Jones is returning from surgery to remove a bunion from his left foot on March 6. There's been nothing to suggest that it'll be an issue when Week 1 rolls around.

New Falcons OC Steve Sarkisian is looking to get WR Julio Jones more red zone targets this season. "When you have a player like Julio, it's making sure we maximize his opportunities because there is so much double-coverage, there are so many unique coverages that roll his way that when we don't get that, let's make sure he's one of the primary receivers on that play because it is such a tough matchup for anybody one on one," Sarkisian said. Hallelujah! Jones' 9 red zone targets last year ranked 6th on his own team. That number deserves to at least double in 2017. (Jordy Nelson led the league last year with 29 red zone looks.) A spike in TD production should follow for Jones, who scored just 6 times last year.

Falcons WR Julio Jones (foot) is targeting the start of training camp for his return to full action. He's spent the offseason recovering from surgery to remove a bunion from his left foot. The procedure had nothing to do with his twice-fractured right foot. “I just had to get something repaired,” Jones said of the March surgery. “That was it. It was light." This particular issue shouldn't be a concern in 2017, although Jones' durability remains a sticking point. He's missed 17 games through 6 NFL seasons. Of course, he's also finished among the top 6 WRs in fantasy points per game in 4 straight years.

Falcons WR Julio Jones is expected to be ready for the start of training camp, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Jones underwent what was deemed a minor foot surgery on March 6. He was in a boot but getting around without crutches at an appearance on Wednesday. “I’m good,” Jones said. "My thing right now is recovery." We'll continue to track his progress. For now, there's no reason to believe the procedure will impact Jones' 2017 campaign.

Injury Predictor

Jones is recovering from offseason surgery to remove a bunion from his right foot. Also, he ended the 2016 season battling a turf toe through the playoffs. Jones is in the prime of his career at age 28. He has had only one major injury when he missed 11 games in 2013 with a fracture to his right foot. But he’s also a guy who will miss a game or two each year with some sort of minor injury.
