If it weren't for Roddy White's established rapport with Matt Ryan and track record of durability, Jones would have a strong case to be the No. 2 receiver on the board. As it stands, Jones is one ...

Julio Jones: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

Coach Mike Smith indicated that Jones is ahead of schedule in his recovery from a foot injury that he sustained this past October, ESPN.com reports. "He's ahead of schedule," Smith confirmed Wednesday. "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."

Jones underwent season-ending surgery to repair a broken foot back on Oct. 14 and it sounds like he is progressing well at this stage. That said, the Falcons will proceed cautiously with their star wideout, with an eye toward having him ready roll this summer. "We'll be very careful," Smith noted regarding the team's plans with Jones. "Our no. 1 goal is to have him ready to participate in training camp." Prior to sustaining his injury back on Oct. 6, Jones was off to a strong start, with 41 catches for 580 yards and two TDs in five 2013 contests.
Falcons coach Mike Smith said that Jones (foot) is on track to return this spring, ESPN.com reports. "He's well on his way," Smith said. "He's met all the marks that they've set for him in terms of the timetable. So we're pleased with what he's done up to this point. He's been spending a lot of time back in Atlanta and in Flowery Branch through the middle parts of the week with our athletic performance department. And he is on schedule to be back in the spring."

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Jones may not be a full go for OTAs, but it sounds as if he will likely be fine for training camp. He lost 14 games to injury in his first three seasons, and the broken bone he's currently recovering from is in the same foot that he injured during the 2011 predraft process. Jones is now eligible for a contract extension, and he's been good enough that the Falcons will likely be thinking along the same lines, despite the injury issues. Assuming his recovery goes as planned, he'll be expected to produce at an elite level in 2014. He has 20 touchdowns in 34 career regular-season games, averaging 5.1 receptions for 80.5 yards per contest. Not surprisingly, he's been even better in the playoffs, with 24 receptions for 305 yards and two touchdowns in two games.
Jones will undergo foot surgery next week and is out for the remainder of the season, Chris Mortensen of ESPN.com reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

After an examination in Charlotte, Dr. Robert Anderson confirmed the diagnosis of a foot fracture, which will end Jones' season after just five tilts. Jones finishes the year ranked first in receptions (41), second in targets (60), and second in receiving yards (580). The Falcons are currently embarking on a bye week, but with Roddy White (hamstring) potentially unavailable in Week 7, Harry Douglas and Tony Gonzalez may soon be Matt Ryan's top threats through the air.
Jones is slated to have his injured foot examined in Charlotte by Dr. Robert Anderson on Wednesday, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

2012

While Roddy White made his living on volume, Jones was the team’s big-play weapon. Jones averaged a whopping 17.8 YPC (4th among 90-target WR) and 10.1 YPT (7th) and had six catches of 40-plus yards (tied for 7th) in just 13 games. At 6-3, 220, and having run a 4.34 40 at the NFL Combine, Jones is a rare combination of size and speed arguably surpassed only by Calvin Johnson. Jones scored eight TDs despite seeing almost no work inside the red zone – just seven targets, only one of which was from inside the 10. If that keeps up, it’s likely he could approach double-digit scores solely from long distance. But if the Falcons take advantage of Jones’ size from in close, he could find himself among the league leaders. Jones should improve in Year 2, and his rapport with quarterback Matt Ryan should only get better. But as long as White is Ryan’s first read, and Tony Gonzalez (21 targets) and Michael Turner (60 rushes) are the team’s top options in the red zone, Jones’ ceiling will be capped.

2011

Most rookie receivers don't find themselves in prominent roles off the bat. But given what the Falcons gave up to get Jones – the 27th pick, the 59th pick, the 124th pick and next year's first and fourth rounders – their lack of depth beyond Roddy White and their win-now mentality, the team will do everything in its power to get him involved this year. At 6-3, 220 and having run a 4.34 40 at the NFL Combine, Jones is a tremendous athlete and dangerous in any area of the field. He's got ideal red-zone size, a 38-inch vertical leap and good hands. Jones isn't particularly elusive in the open field, but he's tough to bring down and can get yards after the catch. He might not start right away, and White will still be Matt Ryan's first look, but expect Jones to be a factor this year. Jones had surgery to repair a fracture in his foot in March but should be healthy for the start of training camp.
