Falcons WR Julio Jones missed Wednesday's practice with a foot issue. ESPN's Vaughn McClure observed Jones walking around practice with a "noticeable limp," so this looks like a legit injury. We'll see if he's able to get back on the field tomorrow.

NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports that the Falcons and WR Julio Jones are "finalizing" a multi-year contract extension that will make him the league's highest-paid receiver. Pelissero reports that the deal should get done today. Jones had intimated he might not play Sunday without a new contract. This news means you can put the star wideout in your fantasy lineups with confidence.

Falcons WR Julio Jones isn't listed on the final Week 1 injury report. He was limited on Thursday for what the team deemed "rest" but later suggested that he might sit out this weekend's opener if his new contract isn't done. The situation is worth monitoring leading up to Sunday's game against the Vikings. But for now, Jones should be penciled into fantasy lineups.

Falcons WR Julio Jones told reporters Thursday that he "doesn't know" if he'll play against the Vikings on Sunday. His press conference was convoluted and cryptic. Jones seemed to suggest he might sit out if his new contract isn't signed by the weekend and added that he was sore from practicing on the turf on Wednesday. "What I’m doing is getting me ready to go," Jones said. "Whatever [Dan Quinn] makes or whoever — the organization or myself — makes the decision when it’s time, we make that decision. It’s not like, 'If he’ll play, if he’s not going to play.' We’re doing everything we planned." This has obviously become a situation to track closely. We'll update Jones' status as we know more.

Injury Predictor

Jones played 16 games for the 2nd time in 3 seasons last year and topped 1,400 receiving yards for the 4th straight time. In fact, 2017 marked the 1st time in his career that Jones didn't even show up on a weekly injury report. That came despite surgery last offseason to remove a bunion from his right foot, as well as turf toe dogging him through the 2016 playoffs. After some durability challenges to start his career, Jones heads into his age-29 season having missed just 3 total games over his past 4 seasons.
