Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (ankle) fully participated in practice Tuesday, Sept. 16.
Huddle Up: Strong sign after Jones was limited Monday, so expect to have the wideout at or near full strength Thursday night. That might be especially important to the Atlanta passing game as fellow wideout Roddy White (hammy) has been unable to practice at all so far this week.

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones did not participate in practice Tuesday, Aug. 19.
Huddle Up: No worries as it was simply a rest day for the WR, who caught 2 of his 4 targets for 20 yards last Saturday in his 2014 debut.

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (foot) expects to play in the team's preseason game Saturday, Aug. 16.

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones is working with a restricted snap count during training camp and is wearing special shoes designed to take stress of the bone that he fractured in his right foot last season.
Huddle Up: As fully expected, Jones is taking it slow along the comeback trail. Expect his exhibition game snaps to be limited as well.

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (foot) expects to be a full participant once training camp starts.
Huddle Up: Expect a bounce-back season from Jones, who was limited to 41 catches, 580 yards and 2 TDs last season, but you're going to have to have to use a high-round draft pick to get him as his spectacular 2012 season (79-1,198-10) is still fresh in most fantasy minds.

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (foot) was able to run routes during OTAs and has been walking normally as he continues his recovery from a broken right foot. Jones also said that the rehab process has made him stronger overall. 'I feel great,' Jones said. 'I'm back doing the little things that I used to do. I'm back to the old Julio. I feel like I'm actually stronger now because I've been doing back squats; getting my quads stronger. Muscles in my hamstrings.'
Huddle Up: A healthy Jones resumes his place among the top fantasy wide receivers in the league, and all indications are he's healthy heading into the 2014 season.

Atlanta Falcons head coach Mike Smith said WR Julio Jones (knee) would not be doing much during the offseason and the goal is to have him ready for training camp.
Huddle Up: The Falcons and the fantasy world has seen what Jones can do when healthy (79-1,198-10 in 2012) and there's no sense rushing him back into action for some meaningless OTAs.

The Atlanta Falcons are exercising the fifth-year option on WR Julio Jones.
Huddle Up: Another no-brainer here, even with Jones coming off a foot injury/surgery, which cost him all but 5 games a year ago.

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones 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.'
Huddle Up: Definitely expect the Falcons to take it nice and easy with Jones -- even if that's not going to be easy on fantasy GMs anticipating a strong, bounce-back season from the wideout.

Atlanta Falcons head coach Mike Smith said WR Julio Jones (foot) is ahead of schedule in his recovery after having surgery on his foot last season. Smith said Jones has resumed running, and the team expects him to be 100 percent healthy soon.
Huddle Up: A healthy Jones, especially one participating fully in training camp, will be a whole lot easier to spend an early fantasy draft pick on.

Atlanta Falcons owner Arthur Blank said WR Julio Jones is doing well in his rehab from foot surgery.
Huddle Up: Jones went out before midseason so expect him back at full strength for the start of the 2014 campaign.

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (foot) will undergo surgery on his foot next week after Dr. Robert Anderson diagnosed him with a fractured foot. Jones will miss the rest of the season.
Huddle Up: What a huge blow to the Falcons and your fantasy team. Try to grab Harry Douglas if he's available or trade Matt Ryan away if you have him.

Updating a previous report, Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones will get a second opinion on his foot injury Wednesday, Oct. 8. Jones does not think the injury is season ending.
Huddle Up: We wish Jones well, but it sounds like the NFL's receptions leader is in a bit of denial. In any case, second opinions rarely constitute a reversal of fortune.

Updating a previous report, Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (foot) is out for the year with a foot injury.
Huddle Up: There's a very small possibility that a second opinion may give the team a different answer, but it's remote and the team is not optimistic. This is a huge blow to the Falcons and many fantasy teams. This leaves the Falcons with a breaking down Roddy White and Harry Douglas at receiver. Needless to say, if Douglas is available in your league you should maneuver to pick him up.

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones was spotted limping out of the X-ray room after the Week 5 game. It appeared to be a lower right leg or foot issue.
Huddle Up: Not good news for Jones, though on the bright side he'll have an extra week of recovery time with Atlanta on the bye.
