Julio Jones Takes Practice Field In OTAs, Make Cuts

Dale Zanine-US PRESSWIRE

The man, the myth, the legend has returned.

No word just yet on how much the Falcons are limiting Julio Jones, but thankfully he's back on the practice field at organized team activities.  Per Vaughn McClure, he's even running around out there like a big cyborg kid.

Jones, of course, has been rehabbing from the broken screw in his foot that cost him most of the 2013 season, as well as taking time away with the team to be with his family after his brother was shot in the arm. There's few players more integral to the team's success than #11, so getting him out there working is, as McClure writes, a great sign. If he continues to progress, there's little question that Jones will be ready for Week 1 of the 2014 Falcons season.

Assuming health, Jones should be the team's top option in the passing game, and has a chance to blow away even the most optimistic projections if that's the case. Fingers crossed everything goes smoothly for him.

Both Roddy White and Lamar Holmes are dealing with off-the-field situations—McClure reported Holmes had a death in the family—so I wouldn't expect to see either one until next week's open media session at OTAs. It's nothing that affects the long-term outlook for either player, and certainly our thoughts are with both.
