We are always a little worried some player will pop up with an injury at the worst time, but the Atlanta Falcons are reportedly healthy. Julio Jones is going to miss today’s practice, but it sounds like Dan Quinn is just giving the league’s best wide receiver a rest day.
Coach Quinn tells @929TheGame that Julio Jones will be the only player held OUT of practice today. Mentioned no injury set-backs after Rams game. Everyone else will practice at some capacity.— Wendy Adams (@wendyradio) January 9, 2018
No set backs for the #falcons injury wise, only player who won’t practice is Julio— Kelsey Conway (@FalconsKelsey) January 9, 2018
We have seen this same practice schedule for Jones pretty regularly: a rest day followed up by full participation. Jones is just good enough that he doesn’t need a full week of practice.
Based on Saturday, the team is firing on all cylinders. It helps to have a healthy roster on top of that, especially with another tough defense on their slate.
