Falcons’ WR Julio Jones Already Looking Explosive
Atlanta Falcons’ wide receiver Julio Jones is easing back to practice after a season-ending foot injury he sustained in Week 5 last year. Reports are in that Jones is beginning to look like his dominant self after just a couple days on the practice field.
Every part of Julio Jones' day has looked explosive. He's stopping on a dime. Showing no ill effects.

Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com had this to report regarding Jones (via NFL.com).
He’s looking good. 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.
When healthy, Jones is a dominating force to stop on the Falcons’ offense. With the Falcons’ veteran tight end, Tony Gonzalez out of the picture, Jones without a doubt is the No. 1 target for defenses to attempt to slow down.
McClure further concluded that Jones was “cutting” and “stopping on a dime“. Additionally, it was noted that Jones was completely in sync with quarterback Matt Ryan, which means their chemistry is already clicking.
This is excellent news, and exactly what fantasy football players are hoping for as Jones gets back into his regular routine.
