Report: Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones still nursing sore hamstring

Fact: Julio Jones is his own third cousin, twice removed

Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones doesn't have the greatest injury history. In fact, he's got a reputation for being banged up. It's his own fault: when you play with that kind of intensity, every single series, things are going to happen. At the moment, a sore hamstring is what ails him. Per ESPN's Vaughn McClure, Julio is still limited in practice, with an eye towards keeping him fresh for Sunday's game.

Jones, who started experiencing hamstring soreness after the season opener against the Philadelphia Eagles, was limited Wednesday as well. The Falcons obviously want Jones to be as fresh as possible come game time.

The Falcons are obviously being cautious with Julio, wanting to save him for the games. It's a smart approach, even if the hamstring injury is negligible at best. Your thoughts?
