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 exercise 2015 option on Julio Jones


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(4/29/2014) The Falcons picked up the 2015 option on receiver Julio Jones, reports the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. The team also plans to start negotiations with Jones on a longterm deal, the report said.

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.


Julio Jones ahead of schedule


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/26/2014) Falcons coach Mike Smith said wideout Julio Jones is ahead of schedule in his recovery from foot surgery. He has started running and is expected to be 100 percent before training camp.

“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.

by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com

Julio Jones barely misses fourth straight 100-yard game


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

On the plus side, Jones leads the NFL with 41 catches and ranks second with 580 receiving yards. He made a spectacular one-handed catch for 46 yards. However, he was unable to secure an easier grab that would have been a 42-yard touchdown.

Jones, who was targeted 11 times, was seen limping out of the X-ray room following the game, reports NFL Network. The report said Jones was favoring his lower right leg or foot. No injury was announced.

Jones has the bye week to recover. He'll play the Buccaneers in Week 7.

Training staff tried to keep Julio Jones from returning Week 4


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

"It was just the initial hit, I was like, 'Wow.' But it was just like a little stinger," Jones told ESPN.com. "It was nothing drastic. It was nothing serious. I went back out there and I finished the game."

If you recall, after Jones returned to the game he made two key catches of 20 and 49 yards.

"To his credit, he came back and made two of the prettiest catches you’ll ever see, where he might have been done for the day," offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter said. "He came back in and kind of got us back in it there at the end. They were nice throws by Matt (Ryan), but great catches by Julio."

Julio Jones looks to break touchdown 'drought'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/2/2013) Falcons receiver Julio Jones hasn't scored a touchdown since Week 2. That's the only thing his Fantasy owners can nitpick about.

Jones goes for his fourth straight 100-yard game Monday night against the Jets. He leads the league with 481 receiving yards and ranks third in both catches (33) and targets (49).

Jones traditionally fares well against AFC opponents. In eight games, he's caught 42 passes for 745 yards and six touchdowns. The Jets are murder against the run, but they've allowed the seventh-most Fantasy points (26.0 per game) to opposing receivers.

Jones sat out Tuesday's practice with a knee injury, but it's not expected him to slow him down. He's got an extra day to get ready, too. Consider him a top-5 play, as always, for Week 5.
