Atlanta’s top player will make his triumphant return to the field on Saturday against the Arizona Cardinals, per Vaughn McClure of ESPN. Dan Quinn said yesterday that he was going to wait until Friday to make a determination on Julio Jones and Taylor Gabriel. I guess Julio looked healthy, but there’s no word on Gabriel.
Julio Jones will get "a few" reps in Saturday's exhibition vs. the Arizona Cardinals, according to source.... https://t.co/Wjxvpjdnw3— vaughn mcclure (@vxmcclure23) August 25, 2017
Earlier this week, we said we hope the team keeps Julio out the entire preseason. In fact, our reader poll showed a super strong majority agreeing that Julio does not need preseason reps.
I agree with all of that, but I’ll be happy to see Julio play a bit in one drive. Even if there exists a small but real potential risk of injury, I can’t say no to more Julio.
