Falcons upping Julio Jones' workload


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/19/2014) Falcons wideout Julio Jones is about to see his practice workload increase, reports the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. The Falcons had been giving Jones a day off after he practices, but now he'll start practicing every day.

"It’s important to have all of our guys ready who are going to play 60 snaps," coach Mike Smith said, referring to the regular-season opener against the Saints. "That’s not possible if you’re not practicing every day. You’re going to see over the next 10 days a change in who’s practicing."


Julio Jones suited up, ready to play Saturday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/16/2014) Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones is suited up for Saturday's preseason came against the Texans.

Jones is expected to see action with the first-team offense. The starters will likely play into the second quarter, NFL.com reports, though Jones may or may not see limited action while the starters are on the field. He's on his way back from foot surgery.


Julio Jones expected to return vs. Houston


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Julio Jones added 10 pounds of muscle


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/13/2014) Falcons receiver Julio Jones added 10 pounds of muscle and still has his breakaway speed, reports ESPN.com. Jones looks fully healthy coming off a second foot surgery, and quarterback Matt Ryan figures to lean on Jones in the red zone with Tony Gonzalez retired, the report added.

Julio Jones won't suit up for preseason game No. 1


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/8/2014) Falcons receiver Julio Jones will not suit up for Friday's preseason opener against the Dolphins, according to the team's official website.

"We're going to work on a second or third preseason game. That''s our goal right now," head coach Mike Smith said on the Falcons telecast.

Jones is coming off foot surgery and  has been practicing every other day since the start of training camp. The Falcons will likely take a cautious approach with their star wide receiver moving forward. His next chance to play will come Aug. 16 at Houston. 


Julio Jones' goal: 1,500-plus yards for himself and Roddy White


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/6/2014) Falcons receiver Julio Jones told Fox Sports that he and Roddy White both could eclipse 1,500 receiving yards. No NFL team ever has had two wideouts surpass that number in a season.

"I think it’s possible, absolutely," quarterback Matt Ryan said. "When you look at what Roddy has done historically here, he’s always been consistent. I think everybody knows what he’s capable of doing. Julio has had three really good years when he has been healthy. Last year through five games, certainly he was on pace to do that.

"I’m lucky to have two of the best guys and the best tandem in the NFL. I think they’re both going to have big years."


Julio Jones might not play in preseason opener


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/5/2014) Falcons coach Mike Smith said he hasn't decided if wide receiver Julio Jones, who is coming off foot surgery, will play in Friday's preseason opener against the Dolphins. Jones has been practicing every other day since the start of training camp.

Smith said he will likely re-evaluate Jones' practice schedule next week.

"No, we haven't done it yet," Smith said. "It will probably be after the first preseason game before we make an evaluation in terms of his workload. But I think he's handled everything that we've asked him to do up to this point in time. He hasn't missed any of the snaps that we've talked about him taking." 


Matt Ryan, Julio Jones regain chemistry quickly


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/30/2014) Falcons receiver Julio Jones was back in pads Tuesday for the first time since his 2013 foot surgery, and he was clicking with quarterback Matt Ryan, according to the team's website.

"I felt like watching Julio and Matt work together, it’s like they hadn’t missed a beat," coach Mike Smith said. "Julio looks like he’s comfortable out there, getting back into the action. We are having him on a prescription of work one day, off one day, and we’ll make a determination as we get further into training camp, whether that’s going to change or not, but it’s worked well for us up to this point in time and when he and Matt have had an opportunity to get some snaps together, they’ve been productive and efficient."

Ryan said it's great to have Jones back.

"He’s an unbelievable player, such an incredible talent," Ryan said. "I can’t believe he’s in year four, now. He’s so much more mature, has such a better understanding of our offense at this point that he’s teaching a lot of guys that are here. He’s a big help for me in terms of getting some of our new guys on board and up to speed, but watching him out there, he looks great. He looks really healthy and I’ve been really impressed with how he’s come back from the injury."


Julio Jones shows 'explosion' in most extensive work to date


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/28/2014) Falcons receiver Julio Jones saw his most extensive practice action Sunday since undergoing right foot surgery and "looked like the Jones of old," reports ESPN.com. "His explosion was evident with every step, and he blew past [corner] Desmond Trufant on a play during one-on-one drills."

Trufant sounded impressed. "He's looking good, man," Trufant said of Jones. "To come back like he did ... he didn't do any of the (organized team activities). He was just doing rehab. He didn't miss a beat. That's exactly what we want to see. And he's going to definitely have a comeback season this year."

Jones, the report concluded, "was spectacular and in sync with Matt Ryan." Jones is off Monday as the team tries to manage his comeback.


White: Julio Jones will 'destroy the NFL'


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/25/2014) Falcons receiver Roddy White is hoping teammate Julio Jones (foot) will be healthy all season because he's counting on a big year for Jones in 2014, reports ESPN.

"I'm worried about him in a sense that I just want him to play football," White said. "Being with Julio for the last few years, I know how great of a player he is. I know how great of a player he can be. And I just want him to be the best he can be. That's all I care about. If he's the best he can be, we're going to win. There's no doubt about it. 

"I don't have any other concerns with him because we're like brothers. I want to see him be on the field throughout the whole season and just watch him destroy the NFL."


Julio Jones cleared for practice but will be limited


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/23/2014) Falcons receiver Julio Jones has been cleared for training camp practice, the next step in his recovery from a broken foot, but coach Mike Smith said he'll be limited in his snaps. 

"Our number one goal is to make sure that we've got everybody as healthy as we possibly can be, but we know that we have to get these guys some work together and reps. Julio will be out there participating in practice right from the start," Smith added per the Atlanta Journal Constitution


Falcons 'certain' Julio Jones will be good as new


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/10/2014) The Falcons are "certain" receiver Julio Jones will "return to his old explosive self," reports ESPN.com. Jones is coming off foot surgery and is waiting for doctors to clear him to go all out. 

Jones says he's running routes and feels no pain in his foot.


Julio Jones, Roddy White aim to be top tandem


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/26/2014) Falcons receiver Julio Jones said when healthy, he and Roddy White are the best receiver tandem in the NFL, reports ESPN.

"When you step on the field, you should feel that you're the best, you and whoever your partner is," Jones said. "I feel like me and Roddy, we're the best when we step on the field. We take it as a challenge every year: We want to go out and show everybody we're the best one-two in the league."

The key for Jones and White is staying on the field. Last season, Jones played in just five games after suffering a season-ending fracture in his right foot while White was hobbled by hamstring and ankle injuries.

"We weren't there to play in the party," White said. "But this year, we're going to be there to play in the party. So at the end of the season, we'll come together, and then we'll see what happens."


Mostly-healed Julio Jones says he's a better player


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/18/2014) In a interview with CBSSports.com NFL writer Pete Prisco, Falcons receiver Julio Jones broke down his foot injury from last season, talked candidly about his concern about running again and set a timetable of Week 1 to be full-go for the season. 

When Jones broke his foot, he had a bigger screw inserted into his left foot and bone marrow transferred from his hip to the foot. That led to Jones' hip hurting him more than his foot in the early days of his recovery. Jones said he couldn't do anything for two months after the surgery and was in a soft cast. 

In February and March he began doing some running drills like ladders but admitted he was hesitant to run at full speed.

"[T]he only thing I was doing was just walking. That's all I was doing since October," Jones said. "Then like going through the ladders and stuff, I was barely putting it down because I was a little timid at first but after a while I was like, 'I don't feel nothing.' So I started doing rope jumping and gradually doing stuff. Now I'm jumping, I'm running routes, I'm doing the route tree now."   

Jones says he feels no pain. He's waiting on the team to clear him for everything and believes he'll be a better player because of what he went through. 

"I'm waiting to go," Jones said. "I think I'm better right now."


Julio Jones operating with several restrictions


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(6/10/2014) Falcons receiver Julio Jones has several restrictions as he makes his way back from October foot surgery, reports the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Filming a commercial, he wasn't allowed to jump to catch footballs.

"I feel very confident in everything that I’m going through and with what I’m doing as far as what (trainer) Marty (Lauzon) has going for me," Jones said. "They are not going to put me in (a bad) situation or rush me back or do anything that’s going to hurt me."

Jones has been cutting and running routes for a couple weeks, "nothing major," he said. He aims to be ready for the season opener.

"Everything is going good," Jones said. "Like they said, I am ahead of schedule, but we are still taking it day by day. Whatever they’ve got planned for me, I’m doing it."


Julio Jones able to start cutting on field


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/4/2014) Falcons receiver Julio Jones, who is coming back from last year's foot injury, is starting to show signs of his recovery, reports ESPN.

The report said Jones was able do some cutting on the field Wednesday. He is not expected to do much until training camp, but it appears as if he's progressing.


Robiskie cautiously optimistic about Julio Jones


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/2/2014) Falcons receivers coach Terry Robiskie is cautiously optimistic about Julio Jones in his return from last year's foot injury, reports ESPN. Jones is scheduled to return during training camp.

"The day I can see him come out and just run and practice at full speed, practice all day and get up the next day and practice again, certainly then I'm going to feel he's back," Robiskie said. "I think every day, we'll be out there with him with caution. We'll be watching him a little bit kind of standing on pins and needles. I think if he jumps in the air to catch the ball, if he jumps on top of some [defensive back] and some DB is under him, you're nervous. But again, I don't know if it's necessarily that I'm nervous that Julio is jumping in the air catching the ball. You're just nervous when one of your guys is jumping up to catch the ball. ... You're nervous about two guys and their feet getting tangled up. You're nervous about their knees getting [knocked]."


Julio Jones won't do 'a whole lot' until training camp


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(5/18/2014) Falcons coach Mike Smith said receiver Julio Jones won't be "doing a whole lot" in the offseason conditioning program or the full-team minicamp later this month, reports the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. The focus will be on getting Jones ready for training camp.

Jones injured his left foot in Week 5 last season and had season-ending surgery. He also had surgery in March 2011 to insert a screw in that foot to fix a stress fracture, the paper said.

The Falcons have said Jones is progressing well in his recovery.

Falcons will keep Julio Jones limited in workouts


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(4/22/2014) Falcons coach Mike Smith said Tuesday that Julio Jones will be limited during offseason workouts. He's still working his way back from foot surgery and is "progressing well" but the Falcons are aiming for him to be ready for the start of the season and don't want to risk anything going wrong during the offseason. 

"Julio is participating with our athletic performance department," Smith said according to ESPN. "He will be able to get out on the field and do some walkthrough stuff with us when we start going. Our focus on Julio is one thing, and that's having him prepared for our opener. ... We're not going to do anything to hinder his timeframe in terms of getting back to work with us."

Jones was on pace for 130 catches and just under 1,900 receiving yards when he fractured his foot last season.

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

“He’s ahead of schedule," Smith said. "Julio’s started his running program with the athletic performance department. We anticipate he’ll be ready to go 100 percent. We’ll get him going at some point in time here in the offseason. We’ll be very careful. Our No. 1 goal is to have him ready to participate in training camp.”


Opponents nervous about Julio Jones' return


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/27/2014) Falcons receiver Julio Jones was on pace for 130 catches and just under 1,900 receiving yards when he fractured his foot last season. Jones is on track to return this spring, and NFC South coaches know that will make Atlanta a different team.

"Whenever you talk about a special player in the division on a team, things change automatically,’’ Buccaneers coach Lovie Smith told ESPN.com. "You just look at all that Julio brings to the table. Look at this toughness. Yeah, it’s easy to talk about him as a receiver, catching the ball and all that. But man, this is a tough guy.

"He’s just a special talent. There are some special receivers in the league. Of course, Calvin Johnson is special. But Julio is big, fast, strong, tough. He’s got everything you’re looking for. Atlanta’s automatically a lot better just based on him being back on the field.’’

Panthers coach Ron Rivera told the website that Jones' return "does change things. So he’s back, and they’re as dangerous as ever."

In five games, Jones caught 41 passes for 581 yards and two touchdowns.
