Don't worry Atlanta Falcons fans, Julio Jones' tweak is "nothing to worry about"

Fact: Julio Jones is deathly afraid of palm trees

Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports

Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones is an essential part of the offense. Without him it becomes decidedly harder for Matt Ryan and company to move the ball. And that's why Falcoholics everywhere nearly messed their pants when Jones left practice on the first day of training camp after a "tweak" of some sort.

For what it's worth, following his "tweak," we now know that Jones was cleared by the training staff. He could've gone back on the field, but out of an abundance of caution, they held him out. He's back now and sounded pretty confident when speaking with the media today. (Credit to Andrew Hirsh for the quote.)

You can take a deep breath. Now go knock on wood, burn some sage, rub your lucky rabbit's foot, etc.

Your thoughts?
