Jones sitting out minicamp to rest foot | Shark Bites | Draft Sharks

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.

Recent Shark Bites

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.

11:12am EST 12/23/18

Falcons WR Julio Jones (hip, ribs) is active for today’s game against the Panthers. He only got in a limited practice on Friday and was reportedly a game-time decision. Jones isn’t at 100% today and comes with more risk than usual. But he remains a WR1 in season-long lineups.

"The belief" is that Falcons WR Julio Jones (hip, ribs) will play against the Panthers today, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Jones will go through pre-game warmups before a final decision is made. He's obviously not at 100% but would be awfully tough to bench in season-long leagues.

Falcons WR Julio Jones (hip) is listed as questionable for Week 16 after only getting in a limited practice on Friday. HC Dan Quinn labeled him a game-time decision for this weekend’s tilt with the Panthers. The good news is we’ll get Atlanta’s inactives at 11:30 am ET on Sunday. An active Julio will remain a must-start in season-long leagues.

Falcons WR Julio Jones (hip) will miss his 2nd straight practice on Thursday. HC Dan Quinn did say that Jones will participate in the team's walkthrough. He only got in a limited practice last week before playing against the Cardinals, and it sounds like Jones will play against the Panthers on Sunday. Check back tomorrow for another update.
