Julio Jones WR ATL 9 Hrs

Jones was a limited participant in Monday's practice due to an ankle injury, the teams' official site reports.

Jones and his 13 targets once again carried the majority of the offensive load in Sunday's loss to the Bengals, but he seems to have suffered an ankle injury at some point during that contest. The Falcons have a quick turnaround with a Thursday night game this week, so the situation is worth another check-up heading into the early matchup. Also worth noting is that fellow wideout Roddy White missed Monday's practice due to a hamstring injury, and if that ailment limits him in any way Thursday night, look for Jones to have an even bigger role than usual in the Falcons' offensive game plan.

Jones caught seven passes on 13 targets for 88 yards and a touchdown Sunday against the Bengals.

After missing most of last season with a foot injury, Jones has started off this one with a bang, posting 116 yards in Week 1 and then scoring a touchdown in Week 2. He'll look to continue his fine play next Sunday against the Bucs.

Jones, who is bouncing back from a foot issue that limited him to five games last season, indicated that he is "100 percent" and operating with "no limitations" in advance of Week 1, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Supporting that notion is the Jones is not listed on the Falcons' practice participation/injury report in advance of Sunday's game against the Saints. Neither are fellow wideouts Roddy White or Harry Douglas, thus ensuring that the Falcons' top trio at the position will be available in Week 1.

Jones, who continues to work back from foot surgery, will begin practicing every day.

Jones has taken it easy in practice, but he's on track to be ready for Week 1. He caught two of Matt Ryan's three completions in Saturday's game, and was targeted a team-high four times. More importantly, Jones played until the other starters came out, showing no signs of injury.

Jones (foot) expects to play in Saturday's preseason game against the Texans, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

Jones still has yet to practice on consecutive days in training camp following foot surgery last October, but he seems intent on returning to action Saturday against Houston. The team will have the final say, however, and Jones will likely only play one series if he does suit up, but seeing him on the field would provide at least some reassurance as to his health heading into the regular season.

Jones (foot) was held out of practice Thursday, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

This is nothing out of ordinary for Jones, who has been on a day-on, day-off schedule since camp began. The Falcons haven't announced whether or not Jones will be on the field Saturday for Atlanta's second preseason game, but based on the cautious approach the team is taking with young wideout, it wouldn't be surprising to see him sit the game out.
