Falcons WR Julio Jones is progressing well, practicing every other day

Julio Jones @juliojones_11 is making good progress as he returns from foot surgery, according to ESPN's Vaughn McClure. Jones has taken every other day off from practice to rest the foot, but he has not missed any scheduled practice time. Falcons head coach Mike Smith and his staff have not yet made a decision about whether Jones will play in the Falcons' Aug. 8 preseason opener. Smith said that Jones has "handled everything that we've asked him to do up to this point in time."

Fantasy Analysis:

It's very good for Jones and the Falcons that he hasn't had any setbacks with his recovery. But this news is a reminder that he is returning from a major surgery, one in which he had a piece of metal permanently inserted into his foot. The Falcons are being very conservative with Jones, but it will be a relief for his potential owners when he's able to return to the practice field on a daily basis. Jones' current draft status does not reflect any injury concern as he's being taken 13th overall on average.
