Julio Jones Injury Updates

Falcons WR Julio Jones (shoulder) is "optimistic" that he'll be able to play against the Saints on Thursday night, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. That makes sense after Jones returned from the injury last week. We'll get his official status around 7 pm ET tomorrow.

Falcons HC Dirk Koetter labeled WR Julio Jones (shoulder) a game-time decision for Thursday night's meeting with the Falcons. Jones participated in Wednesday's walkthrough after playing through this injury last week. His availability vs. Atlanta will hinge on the strength of that shoulder, per Koetter. We'll get his official status around 7 pm ET tomorrow.

Falcons WR Julio Jones was sidelined for Tuesday's practice with the shoulder injury that he suffered in last week's loss to the Bucs. Jones played through the issue in that one but clearly wasn't comfortable. We'll see if he practices tomorrow and then how Atlanta lists him on the final injury report ahead of Thursday's game vs. the Saints.

Falcons WR Julio Jones suffered a shoulder injury in the 3rd quarter of Sunday's game against the Bucs and is officially questionable to return. We'll update his status when we learn more.

Update: Jones returned later in the 3rd quarter.

Falcons WR Julio Jones (foot) isn't listed on the final Week 12 injury report. He sat out on Wednesday but put in full practices on Thursday and Friday. Jones is in a blowup spot at home for the Bucs this weekend.

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.

The Patriots have traded a 2nd-round pick to the Falcons in exchange for WR Mohamed Sanu. New England tried to acquire Sanu during this spring's draft, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, so it's clearly a player the team covets. Sanu was a steady producer in Atlanta, averaging 4.2 catches and 47 yards per game over the past 3+ seasons. He played primarily in the slot for the Falcons, but we'll see how he fits into the Patriots' WR corps alongside Julian Edelman, Josh Gordon (once he's back from his knee injury), Phillip Dorsett and Jakobi Meyers. When everyone's healthy, it figures to be Edelman, Gordon and Sanu in 3-WR sets. Sanu has a brand new offense to learn, though. And note that he's going from the league's 2nd pass-heaviest offense to its 14th run-heaviest. Sanu is worth stashing in most fantasy leagues but won't be a recommended Week 8 starter. The Falcons, meanwhile, figures to roll with either Justin Hardy or Russell Gage as the #3 WR. But Sanu's departure will mostly just free up extra targets for Julio Jones, Calvin Ridley and Austin Hooper.

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 reported for this week's mandatory minicamp but won't participate in practice because of a foot injury he's rehabbing. "It was part of maintenance ... and also some rehab, too," HC Dan Quinn said, per D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. "They won't participate in the camp this time, but I'm anticipating them both being ready for the training camp." MLB Deion Jones was the other player Quinn was referring, too. Jones, of course, lost 10 games last season to a foot injury. We don't see any reason right now to worry about Julio Jones, who often sits out offseason workouts for similar reasons.

Falcons WR Julio Jones (hip, ribs) is not listed on the final injury report and will play in Sunday's finale against the Bucs. He only put in a limited practice on Friday, though, after playing around 50% of the offensive snaps in each of the last 2 weeks. Clearly operating at less than 100%, Jones is more of a WR2 -- albeit with plenty of upside -- for Week 17.

Falcons WR Julio Jones (hip) did not practice on Wednesday. That's a new injury for Jones and is especially notable after he played just 48% of the offensive snaps last week. He's been playing banged up all season, but we wouldn't consider Jones a lock to suit up against the Panthers this weekend. We'll get another update on his status tomorrow.

Falcons WR Julio Jones (foot, calf, illness) is not listed on the final injury report. He only got in a limited practice on Friday — but being left off the final injury report is confirmation that he’ll be fine for this weekend’s game against the Cardinals. Even in a matchup with CB Patrick Peterson, Jones remains a WR1.

Falcons WR Julio Jones (foot) isn't listed on the final Week 14 injury report. He only got in a limited practice on Friday, but there was never much concern about his status. Jones remains a must-start for this weekend's game against the Packers.

Falcons WR Julio Jones didn't practice Wednesday and is listed on the injury report with a calf issue. Jones seemed fine in last weekend's win over the Panthers, and we've heard nothing to suggest the calf is a real concern. We'll get another update on Jones' status tomorrow.

Falcons WR Julio Jones (ankle) isn’t listed on the final injury report after putting in limited practices on Thursday and Friday. There was never any concern about his status for this weekend’s game against the Saints. Jones remains a WR1 for that one.

Falcons WR Julio Jones (ankle) missed his 2nd straight practice on Thursday. We don't have any details on the injury and haven't heard anything to suggest he's in danger of missing this weekend's game against the Saints. But check back tomorrow for another update.

Falcons WR Julio Jones (ankle) will play against the Cowboys on Sunday, according to the team’s official website. That’s no surprise after Jones played through the injury last week. He put in a limited practice on Friday after sitting out the first 2 days. There’s increased risk here, but Jones remains a must-start in season-long leagues.

Falcons WR Julio Jones (lower leg) did not practice on Wednesday. He did participate in the walkthrough, though, HC Dan Quinn said. Jones played through the injury last week and should tentatively be expected to play against the Cowboys this Sunday. We'll get another update tomorrow.

Falcons HC Dan Quinn said Monday that WR Julio Jones played through a lower-leg injury yesterday. We saw him looking a bit hobbled on a few occasions, and Jones' snap rate was down a bit to 71.7%. But he caught 6 of 12 targets for a season-high 118 yards. We'll keep an eye on him this week, but he should be fine for Sunday's game against the Cowboys.

Falcons WR Julio Jones (hip) was limited in practice all week but isn’t listed on the final injury report. He’s good to go for Sunday’s game against a leaky Dolphins pass defense.
