Julio Jones Injury Updates | Shark Bites

Fantasy Football News 2021

Most Recent Shark Bites

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that Falcons WR Julio Jones is still hoping to play again this season, despite a lingering hamstring injury and his team being out of playoff contention. Jones recently received a platelet-rich plasma injection in that bum hamstring in hopes of speeding up the healing process. We'll see if he can make it back for next weekend's game vs. the Chiefs.

Falcons WR Julio Jones (hamstring) is not listed on the final Week 6 injury report. He only got in a limited practice on Friday but is evidently ready to return for this weekend’s game vs. Minnesota. Jones carries elevated risk until we see him make it through a game healthy — but he also boasts WR1 upside in what should be a shootout against a beatable Vikings secondary. Jones' return is also good news for QB Matt Ryan, who's struggled the past 3 weeks.

The Falcons won't make a final decision on WR Julio Jones' status for today's game against the Panthers until pregame warmups, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Jones aggravated his hamstring injury this past Monday night and didn't practice all week. We'd be surprised if he plays but will find out for sure around 11:30 am ET. Even if he's active, Jones would be a high-risk fantasy play.

The Falcons list WR Julio Jones (hamstring) as questionable for Sunday's game against the Panthers. He didn't practice all week after aggravating that hamstring injury on Monday night, so fantasy owners shouldn't be counting on him in Week 5 lineups. We'll get Julio's official status by noon ET on Sunday. WR Olamide Zaccheaus will move into the starting lineup if Jones sits.

The Falcons have ruled WR Julio Jones out for the rest of the Monday night game at Green Bay with his hamstring injury. That's the same issue that rendered Jones questionable heading into the game. According to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero, Jones aggravated the issue when he was "dragged down awkwardly" on a 1st-half play. Jones re-entered the game then but stayed in the locker room when the Falcons came out from halftime. Olamide Zaccheaus was the next WR up. We'll see about Jones' status heading into Week 5, but it doesn't look promising. The initial injury dates back to before the season.

The Falcons list WR Julio Jones (hamstring) and Calvin Ridley (ankle, calf) as questionable for Monday night's game against the Packers. Jones put in 3 limited practices this week, while Ridley was limited on Friday and Saturday after sitting out Thursday. HC Dan Quinn said both guys are "trending upward," and insider Vaughn McClure expects them both to play. The late kickoff adds risk to the situation, but we'd pencil Jones and Ridley into fantasy lineups for now. We'll see if we get another update on them before Sunday's games start. WR Russell Gage (concussion) isn't listed on the final injury report and will play vs. Green Bay.

Falcons WR Julio Jones (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Bears. He didn’t practice all week after reportedly aggravating a hamstring injury in last week’s loss to the Cowboys. NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport said Friday morning that Jones will be a game-time decision. We’ll get his official status by noon ET on Sunday. An active Jones is almost impossible to bench in fantasy, but he’ll obviously come with more risk this week.

Falcons WR Julio Jones' availability for Sunday's game against the Bears is "up in the air," according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Jones has reportedly been dealing with this hamstring injury for a few weeks but aggravated it in last week's loss to the Cowboys. He didn't practice on Wednesday or Thursday. We'll see what he does on Friday and how Atlanta lists him on the final injury report.

Falcons WR Julio Jones (hamstring) missed his 2nd straight practice on Thursday. Jones played through this injury last week but certainly isn't a lock to suit up against the Bears on Sunday. Check back tomorrow for another update.

Falcons WR Julio Jones (hamstring) was limited in practice all week but isn't listed on the final injury report. HC Dan Quinn said Friday that Jones has been dealing with the hamstring issue for "a couple weeks." It didn't stop him from racking up 157 yards in Week 1, though, and shouldn't stop you from locking him into Week 2 fantasy lineups.

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.
