Falcons WR Julio Jones (ankle) still on track for Week 1

ESPN - [Full Article]

He didn't play Thursday night in the Falcons' 17-15 win over the Jaguars, but Julio Jones' mere presence on the field during pregame warm-ups was a good sign for the Falcons heading into the regular season.

Jones injured an ankle during last week's third preseason game against Miami in Orlando. He was nowhere to be seen during practice Sunday through Tuesday, so Thursday was his first time back in front of the public eye since the injury.

Fantasy Impact: 

Jones went through a light workout with the other receivers, fielding passes from Matt Ryan and testing his ability to turn, pivot and accelerate up the field. He did it at half speed, but told Falcons coach Dan Quinn that he was encouraged. The team at least expects Jones to be close to a full go on Monday for practice.
