The Falcons have some problems coming out of last night’s game against the Dolphins. But apparently the condition of star receiver Julio Jones isn’t one.
Jones left the game with an ankle injury in the second quarter, but it’s apparently not so bad, since coach Dan Quinn said he’d be back on the practice field as soon as this weekend.
“I think Julio will hopefully be back in short order and hopefully as quick as Sunday,” Quinn said, via Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com. “I think he definitely wanted to go back in. And just for me, it was a coach’s decision where I said, ‘OK, you’re done.’ He definitely wanted to go. He was loose and ready to go.”
Given his importance to the team, and his not-insignificant injury history, keeping him tucked away was the wise decision.
The rest, the Falcons are going to have to wait and see on. First-round safety Keanu Neal (knee) and veteran defensive end Adrian Clayborn (shoulder) will have MRIs today to determine the severity of their injuries.
