Jones Not Suited Up for Friday's Game

Posted Aug 8, 2014

The question heading into Friday's game was whether wide receiver Julio Jones would play, and as the Falcons came out for warmups, we got the answer

Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones trailed not far behind the rest of his teammates as Atlanta hit the field for warmups at the Georgia Dome ahead of its preseason game against the Dolphins on Friday night.

The difference was that Jones was in street clothes.

Jones is being held out of tonight's game and it shouldn't come as much surprise. The star has been on one day, off the next throughout XFINITY® Atlanta Falcons Training Camp as he continues his comeback from a foot procedure that kept him out for most of 2013.

"Everybody just wants to see me out there on the field, just for the fans and everybody else," Jones said earlier this week. "I've still just got to be smart about it because it is preseason. You don't want to rush anything and go out there and play a preseason game when it really doesn't matter, if something happens. We've just got to be cautious right now."
