Jones (toe) seemed to be moving around pretty well during a Wednesday appearance at the Georgia State Capitol, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

EDGE Analysis

Recovering from March 6 surgery to address a bunion, Jones was wearing a boot but didn't need crutches to walk. He said his foot feels good, and while he'll still miss the Falcons' offseason program, the 28-year-old wideout remain on track for training camp. With no crucial offseason additions or losses, the 2017 Atlanta offense should look very similar to the 2016 iteration.

Jones will have a minor foot procedure Monday, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports.

EDGE Analysis

Jones' surgery won't impact his availability for training camp, as it was previously reported that the procedure, which is to remove a bunion, is expected to coincide with a mere four-week recovery. Given that timetable, Jones should be fine to participate in Atlanta's offseason program as well, minimizing concern over the problem. Jones missed two games last season due his toe injury.

Jones has an appointment next week to learn whether he requires surgery to remove a bunion from his foot, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Jones didn't log a snap in Weeks 14 and 15 with what was initially termed turf toe, but head coach Dan Quinn scaled back the diagnosis, calling the wideout's ailment a toe sprain. Upon his return, Jones earned at least 58 percent of the offensive snaps during the Falcons' march to the Super Bowl, racking up 30 receptions (on 40 targets) for 490 yards and four touchdowns across five outings. After the devastating loss to the Patriots, surgery was discussed to amend the issue, now known as a bunion, which would require a recovery timetable of about four weeks. If the procedure is ordered up, expect Jones to be good to go for the offseason program.

Jones will have his toe evaluated in a month to determine if surgery is necessary, Vaughn McClure of ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

Jones has been dealing with the injury since early December and was forced to miss two games because of it. Even though he was able to tough it out during the playoffs, turf toe can be a troublesome injury, especially for receivers, who are constantly planting and making cuts on their routes. If it is ultimately decided that Jones will need surgery, his participation in organized team activities could be delayed until he is fully recovered.

Jones (toe) brought in all four of his targets for 87 yards in the Falcons' 34-28 Super Bowl LI overtime loss to the Patriots.

EDGE Analysis

Jones shook off his perpetually problematic toe to haul in the modest four targets he saw from Matt Ryan and make a catch that would have likely been the talk of the game were it not for the Patriots' historic comeback. The sixth-year pro made a seemingly impossible 27-yard catch on the right sideline over the Patriots' Eric Rowe with 4:47 remaining in the fourth quarter in which he remain focused despite the latter's hands flashing into his line of sight and also manged to tap both feet in before going out of bounds. The highlight-reel reception gave Atlanta the ball at the New England 22-yard line as they clung to a 28-20 lead, but a subsequent sack of Ryan left the Falcons out of field-goal range. Despite the disappointing conclusion to the season, Jones enjoyed an impressive 2016 campaign that included a career-high 300-yard performance against the Panthers.

Jones (toe) is active for Sunday's Super Bowl LI versus the Patriots.

EDGE Analysis

For the last two months, Jones has been toughing out a sprained toe, which could require surgery after the Super Bowl, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. Nonetheless, there was little doubt that Jones would be available Sunday against a Patriots defense that ranked 12th against the pass but first in points allowed during the regular season.

Jones, who is expected to play in Super Bowl LI against the Patriots on Sunday, may require offseason surgery on his sprained toe, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

EDGE Analysis

Head coach Dan Quinn first called Jones' ailment turf toe, but since the wideout was deemed inactive in Week 14, Quinn has termed it a toe sprain. Despite the hindrance, Jones has caused headaches for opposing defenses over the past four games, racking up 26 catches (on 36 targets) for 403 yards and four touchdowns. Once the result of the Super Bowl is determined, he's slated for an evaluation of his foot, after which all parties involved will make a decision regarding whether or not a procedure is needed. If the preceding comes to pass, a decent portion of Jones' offseason will be devoted to rehab. Before then, though, he'll take aim at the Patriots' 12th-ranked pass defense Sunday.

Jones (toe) does not have an injury designation ahead of Sunday's Super Bowl against the Patriots.

EDGE Analysis

Jones was limited throughout practice this week to minimize the stress placed on his sprained toe, but as always anticipated, the wideout enters Sunday's colossal contest without any concern over his status. The All-Pro target missed two days of practice prior to Atlanta's NFC championship win over the Packers, but still finished with a monstrous nine receptions for 180 yards and two touchdowns in that contest. Thanks to nearly two weeks of rest since then, Jones should once again be firing on all cylinders this Sunday, when he figures to play a key role in the Falcons' attempt to win their first Super Bowl in franchise history.

According to head coach Dan Quinn, Jones (toe) is expected to be a 'full go' at Thursday's practice despite being listed as limited, Vaughn McClure of ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

Jones has been listed as limited all week, but Quinn noted that it would take an 'act of nature' for his star wideout to not be operating at 100 percent come Sunday. As such, expect Jones to be a key piece in Atlanta's offensive gameplan against the Patriots' first-ranked scoring defense.
