Head coach Dan Quinn said Monday that Jones (ankle) will return to practice either Wednesday or next Monday, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Jones said he would have kept playing in Thursday's preseason game against the Dolphins if it had been a regular-season contest. There's been no cause to doubt his downplaying of the injury, as the Falcons have confirmed that they expect him back in short order. Even if he does return Wednesday, the veteran wideout won't play in Thursday's preseason finale. It sounds as if he'll get in a full week of practice in preparation for Week 1 against the Bucs.

Jones (ankle) missed a second consecutive practice Monday, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Removed from Thursday's preseason game against the Dolphins with an ankle injury, Jones said afterward that he would have kept playing if it had been a regular-season contest. Already accustomed to producing at an elite level while nicked up, Jones still has nearly two weeks to prepare for Atlanta's opener against Tampa Bay. There won't be any cause for concern unless Jones is still absent from practice heading into next week.

Jones (ankle) will not practice Sunday, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Jones was hoping to be back to practice by Sunday, but instead, he'll get another day off for further rest and recovery. He recently stated his ankle was "doing great", which seems to indicate it's only minor and he'll be back on the field soon, although it wouldn't be surprising if the Falcons continue to stay cautious with their star receiver and keep him limited throughout the rest of the preseason. We should see his status updated again in the coming few days.

Jones (ankle) said he's "doing great" after injuring his ankle in Thursday's loss to the Dolphins, D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

EDGE Analysis

Jones left Thursday's tilt after a couple series due to an injured ankle, but he doesn't appear in line to miss any time with the injury. The star wideout said that he would've returned to the game if it were a regular season contest, but the team saw no reason for him to play through the injury in the preseason. He's expected to participate in the Falcons' practice on Sunday.

Head coach Dan Quinnn said Thursday that Jones (ankle) could return to practice as soon as Sunday, ESPN's Vaughn McClure reports.

EDGE Analysis

Jones left Thursday's preseason game with an ankle injury, and although he did not return to action, Quinn told reporters that the star wideout wanted to re-enter the contest. The Sunday timeline for Jones' return likely means that the Falcons will be off Friday and Saturday, so it appears that Jones will be back as soon as possible without missing any time.

Jones is questionable to return to Thursday's matchup with the Dolphins due to an ankle injury, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Considering the circumstances it is unlikely the Falcons will allow their star receiver to take the field again if he is dealing with an ankle issue. Jones had recorded one catch for 17 yards on two targets prior to leaving the game. The severity of the injury is currently unknown, but expect more clarity on his status when more information is made available.

Jones did not catch a pass while being targeted twice in Thursday's preseason win over Washington.

EDGE Analysis

Per ESPN's Vaughn McClure, on one play QB Matt Ryan threw a short pass to Jones too low and then threw too high to the wideout on another. Ultimately though, Jones' preseason stats are of little import, as he is entrenched as the Falcons' top wideout (opposite newcomer Mohamed Sanu) and the team's priority here is making sure that Jones is in good health when Week 1 rolls around.

Jones (leg) returned to a full practice Tuesday, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Jones hurt his leg on the first day of training camp, but there's been nothing to suggest it was a serious injury. His quick return to practice supports that notion, leaving Jones with more than enough time to prepare for what should be a big 2016 campaign. Falcons QB Matt Ryan believes Jones is capable of producing the first 2,000-yard receiving season in league history.

Jones (leg) remained limited in Sunday's practice, but after the Falcons' day off Monday, the wide receiver is expected to be a full participant Tuesday, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Kicking off training camp with a left leg injury Thursday, Jones has been held back by the Falcons in the meantime, seemingly as a precautionary measure due to foot surgeries on his medical chart. For the second day in a row, he took part in individual drills, akin to about 50 percent of Sunday's practice, according to head coach Dan Quinn. If Jones is indeed uninhibited Tuesday, prospective owners should still keep a close eye on his progression to ensure he avoids a setback.

Jones (knee) could return to full practice as early as Sunday, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports. "He's fit and knows it well, so I'm not going to rush it," head coach Dan Quinn said Saturday. "But I think it's going to be sooner than later. I don't have necessary have a, 'It has to be by tomorrow [Sunday] or it has to be by Tuesday.' But I'd be surprised if it wasn't tomorrow [Sunday] or Tuesday."

EDGE Analysis

Jones tweaked his knee in the first practice of training camp Thursday, but his noted explosiveness was on display Saturday, indicating that he should indeed take on every practice rep in the near future. However, with an off day scheduled Monday, the Falcons could very well exercise caution with the stud wideout.
