Falcons WR Julio Jones is keeping his eye on the third exhibition game, which is usually the team’s regular season tune-up game.
“Possibly, the third game,” Jones said. “We’ve been doing a lot of timing and everything. I’ve been with Matt (Ryan), this will be my fourth year. We got the timing and everything down.”
Jones is fine if the Falcons decide to not play him in any exhibition games.
“For me, I just want to be in shape to be able to go out there and sustain for a whole game,” Jones said.
“Everything feels great. I’m just doing everything that’s been asked of me.”
Jones was on pace for 131-1856-6.4 prior to his foot injury in Week 5. He has the potential to be the most productive receiver in the league, but the foot injury is a bit concerning, especially since it’s a broken bone in the same location as his pre-Draft injury. If he plays a full season, he’ll very likely finish in the top 5.
