Julio Jones injury: NFC Offensive Player of the Month still limited in practice

New, comments

Julio Jones was still limited in Thursday's practice. Tevin Coleman did some running and spent time working with the athletic performance staff during today's practice.

Offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan told the media after today's practice that Julio Jones was still pretty limited as he continues to deal with a hamstring that has plagued him since the beginning of the season, as well as a toe injury suffered in last week's game against Dallas. Dan Quinn said prior to practice that the toe injury is not turf toe, which is good news. Quinn said that the injury is actually on top of the foot. Julio, for what it's worth, told the media during today's open locker room session that he feels fine.

Tevin Coleman is making progress, though he's not quite ready to return to practice just yet. Coleman did some running and worked with the athletic performance staff during today's practice.

Devonta Freeman was again limited with the toe injury he suffered en route to his ridiculous stat line against the Cowboys, and Brooks Reed, who's making great progress, was also limited. Reed does have a shot to play on Sunday against the Texans.

Ricardo Allen was again limited with a knee injury, and Devin Hester did take some return reps today, though not at full speed. Hester is listed as limited on the official injury report.

Jacob Tamme, of course, is still under the league's concussion protocol and was held out of today's practice.

We'll see where everyone stands tomorrow, but I'll be surprised if Freeman, Allen and Julio don't play on Sunday. Coleman and Tamme will almost certainly be out.
