Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - BASEBALL/NFL -

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. — The At­lanta Fal­cons are hold­ing out wide re­ceiver Julio Jones in their pre­sea­son opener at Mi­ami on Thurs­day night.

Jones has re­ported no prob­lems in his re­cov­ery from mi­nor off­sea­son foot surgery. His prac­tice time has been reg­u­lated, though he has ran well. Jones said Mon­day, “I’ve been mov­ing well. I feel good.”

Coach Dan Quinn said wide re­ceiver Tay­lor Gabriel (lower leg) and of­fen­sive tackle Kevin Graf (arm) also will miss the game.

Jones and Gabriel are ex­pected to go through pregame warmups.

Quinn said he has not de­cided the game sta­tus for rookie first-round pick Takkarist McKin­ley, a de­fen­sive end who had off­sea­son shoul­der surgery.
