Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones was limited in practice on Monday with an undisclosed injury. Head coach Mike Smith would not elaborate on the injury, speaking in only vague terms when talking to the press after practice. From the Atlanta Journal-Constitution:
"Julio only went through limited reps today," Falcons coach Mike Smith said. "It was mainly precautionary. In terms of watching his load."
Jones recorded 79 receptions, 1,198 yards and 10 touchdowns last season, his second in the NFL.
Fantasy Impact: There really isn't much to go on right now. Either no news is good news, or the Falcons want to take a closer look at Jones before specifying what kind of injury he has. It's worth noting that he dealt with hand and ankle ailments last season, but still started all 18 games including the playoffs. We should know more before the preseason opener on Thursday.
Before the injury, Jones has been lighting up camp, looking more quick and explosive even while adding some weight. We'll keep tabs on the injury situation, but at the moment he's an easy WR1 in all fantasy formats and well worth the second round ADP.
