Julio Jones may be having foot surgery

Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones said after the Super Bowl that he’d wait a month to have the foot/toe injury that caused him problems in the weeks leading up to the Super Bowl evaluated to see if he’ll need surgery.

That meeting is set for Monday with Dr. Robert Anderson, the Charlotte foot specialist who has been the go-to guy of late for athletes with issues in that area.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that Jones will be having minor surgery while Vaughn McClure of ESPN reports the Falcons “emphasized no decision on surgery has been made just yet.” McClure reports the surgery would be to “remove a bunion” on Jones’ foot.

Jones’ availability for camp isn’t expected to be affected by the procedure and his play wasn’t particularly affected by the injury during the Falcons’ run to Super Bowl LI.

    His foot is probably the one thing that could keep him from shattering a bunch of receiving records.

    A bunion?! That whole “amazing playing-hurt, playing-strong” saga was over a damn bunion?!! Move over Ben, there’s a new Princess sat on the pea!

    They misheard him. It isn’t minor surgery, he’s having miner surgery. All coal miners develop debilitating bunions at age 25.

    Didn’t stop him from making a couple amazing catches in the SB.

    That 4th quarter toe dragger on the sideline was almost a dagger in the Pats comeback.

    Hope this is no big issue and he’s full strength for next year.

    As a Raider fan I hope A. Cooper can become as good as J. Jones is…

    Go Google “severe bunion” and look and the pictures before you call him a princess.

    Or his qb. Or his coach. Or his gm. Or his owner. Or his foot.

    Agreed, he’s a tough dude that goes over the middle and takes hits. Patrick Willis retired over a bad case of turf toe and he was tough as hell. You don’t know these injuries unless you have them.

    I’m sure that foot will improve with age and mileage.

    I wouldn’t call a bunionectomy a “Minor” surgery. Anytime you cut into bone and pin it back together isn’t “Minor”

    Calling Dr. Ryan.
