Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (illness) is not participating in practice Thursday, Nov. 20. It appears like Jones will still be ready for the team's Week 12 game.
Huddle Up: Sounds like a bug is making the rounds in Atlanta, but go ahead and count on having Jones available Sunday, especially if he can return to practice Friday.

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones said he should be blamed for the team's offensive struggles, because he needs to make plays when given the chance. 'It starts with me,' Jones said. 'I got to go out there and make plays when they are presented to me. I got to go out there and catch the ball, be more of a deep threat. ... We are out there misreading or dropping balls. We have to fix that. It's nothing that the defense is doing, we have to fix that here.'
Huddle Up: Jones has been targeted 44 times over the last 4 games but has a modest 26 catches for 311 yards and no scores following a blazing 23-365-3 start in Weeks 1-3. He remains a WR1, but he's certainly overdue for a big game.

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (ankle) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 17, and is probable for Week 7.
Huddle Up: Jones will be out there Sunday without out much limitation against the Ravens, and his fantasy owners will be hoping to see him in the end zone for the first time since Week 3.

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 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.
