Julio Jones says right foot com­pletely healed

The Covington News - - THE WIRE -

FLOW­ERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) — Re­ceiver Julio Jones says his right foot has fully re­cov­ered from surgery last Oc­to­ber, adding that he will be 100 per­cent when the At­lanta Fal­cons host New Or­leans in the sea­son opener.

Jones showed his break­away speed at the end of prac­tice late Thurs­day af­ter­noon when he ran past cor­ner­back Des­mond Tr­u­fant to catch a 40-yard pass from quar­ter­back Matt Ryan.

Though he's not sure if the Fal­cons will let him play in pre­sea­son games next month, Jones' pri­mary con­cern is mak­ing sure he has no set­backs.

Jones broke his right foot — an in­jury sim­i­lar to one he suf­fered at the NFL com­bine in 2011 — in a Week 5 home loss to the New York Jets last sea­son.
