Falcons WR Julio Jones (toe) returned to take limited reps Friday after missing practice earlier in the week. HC Dan Quinn said Jones “looked good” on Friday and “won’t have any limitations” on Sunday. His toe injury is a concern, but he has a great matchup against the Packers.

NFC Championship vs. Green Bay
Julio Jones caught six passes for 67 yards and a touchdown in the Falcons' 36-20 win over the Seahawks in the Divisional Round before leaving the game early in the fourth quarter. Jones re-aggravated an existing foot/toe injury, and with the game pretty much in hand, he went to the locker room early to receive treatment. He and the Falcons insist the injury isn't a big concern, but he played just 42-of-72 offensive snaps last Saturday and has been held out of practice this week. The concern isn't whether or not he'll play, because he will. The concern is whether or not he's going to be explosive. Still, Atlanta's offense is firing on all cylinders, and Green Bay's secondary is highly banged-up, so Jones is an excellent DFS play this weekend. He's behind only the Steelers' Antonio Brown in our Championship Sunday rankings.
