Falcons | Julio Jones to be limited
Tue, 22 Apr 2014 10:02:47 -0700
Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (foot) will be limited during the team's offseason workouts while he recovers from offseason foot surgery. "Julio is participating with our athletic performance department," head coach Mike Smith said. "He will be able to get out on the field and do some walk-through stuff with us when we start going. Our focus on Julio is one thing, and that's having him prepared for our opener. ... He's progressing well. We're not going to do anything to hinder his timeframe in terms of getting back to work with us."
The team previously said Jones was ahead of schedule in his rehab. This is probably just a case of the Falcons being ultra-cautious with their top offensive weapon. Assming Jones is fully healthy this year and his foot doesn't slow him down, he should return to being a WR1 for fantasy players.
