Julio Jones inching closer to returning


FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. – It's no secret that Julio Jones is back with the team for training camp, easing into drills because of a previous foot injury and, at the same time, negotiating a long-term contract extension. Needless to say, whenever Jones is on the field, all eyes are upon the Falcons' ninth-year superstar.


So far, he's been primarily working on individual workouts off to the side and also partaking in some receiving drills.

"For me it's just getting acclimated coming back out," Jones said. "Running full speed and doing full-speed cuts. We don't want to chance anything since I've been taking my time to get back into the swing of things. But I'll be ready to go. Like I said, we've got a plan in place."

On Wednesday, Quinn said he estimated about 10 days to two weeks before Jones is back and fully acclimated into team practice.
