Dan Quinn: Deion Jones returning to practice Wednesday

The earliest he could play is next week against the Cowboys.

I’m not going to lie. The Falcoholic writers have been very excited about getting Deion Jones back with the Falcons suddenly back in the playoff hunt. It feels like only two days ago we discussed what his return could mean to making the playoffs.

The biggest problem was we had no idea if Jones was healthy and on target to return at the earliest possible time allowed against the Dallas Cowboys. He appears to be on the right track and returns to practice today.

We aren’t sure if Jones will be limited or a full participant, but we do know the Falcons have 21 days to decide if they will move Jones back to the active roster. If he’s not ready for next Sunday’s game against Dallas, maybe he will be full speed for the Thanksgiving matchup against the New Orleans Saints.

Especially since he can do things like this.

If Jones is a full participant today, there’s a good chance he plays next week.
