Falcons’ Jones fit after foot surgery
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.
