Falcons WR Julio Jones (foot) looks 'like the Jones of old'

ESPN - [Full Article]

Falcons WR Julio Jones saw his most extensive practice action since undergoing right foot surgery and looked like the Jones of old after sitting out one day. His explosion was evident with every step, and he blew past Desmond Trufant on a play during one-on-one drills. "He's looking good, man," Trufant said of Jones. "To come back like he did ... he didn't do any of the (organized team activities). He was just doing rehab. He didn't miss a beat. That's exactly what we want to see. And he's going to definitely have a comeback season this year." Jones was spectacular and in sync with Matt Ryan. Despite how he looked Sunday, the Falcons won't change the game plan with Jones just yet. He'll be off again Monday.

Fantasy Impact: 

Good news for those targeting Jones as a late first round, early second round option. Still, there is reason to be concerned with his foot and staying healthy. If he does play a full season, we think he's a top-five WR.
