The NFL regular season doesn't start for another 64 days, but that doesn't mean fantasy owners should ignore the dog days of summer. Teams have already begun to host organized team practices and minicamps, and the official training camp for most squads is less than a month away. For injury purposes it's time to see if players have recovered or are making good progress in their offseason rehabs. Here are the names to keep in eye on as camps start.

The first five weeks of the 2013 season were amazing for Jones as he amassed 41 receptions for 580 yards. However a fractured foot ended his season in early October, and he's spent the last eight months recovering from surgery. The procedure marked Jones' second foot surgery since leaving Alabama - he previously broke his 5th metatarsal at the NFL combine. Foot injuries can be problematic for receivers, and that this has happened more than once gives Atlanta every reason to treat Jones' return conservatively.
