Fal­cons’ Jones fit af­ter foot surgery

Metro Canada (Ottawa) - - Front Page -

All-pro re­ceiver Julio Jones says he’s 100 per cent healthy with the At­lanta Fal­cons’ opener three days away at Chicago.

Jones had right foot surgery in March and took just eight snaps in one pre-sea­son game, but he’s been prac­tis­ing with no re­straints for the last three weeks.

Work­ing in drills full-speed with quar­ter­back Matt Ryan — last year’s NFL MVP — has helped Jones stay com­fort­able as the Fal­cons try to re­turn to the Su­per Bowl for the sec­ond straight year.

This is Jones’ sev­enth year play­ing with Ryan.
