Julio Jones (toe/hamstring) was limited in practice Friday and is listed by the Atlanta Falcons as questionable for Sunday's game against Washington.
Per the report, Jones' reps were cut down on Friday to provide the wideout with added rest, but his status for Week 5's contest doesn't appear in doubt, a notion supported by ESPN's Vaughn McClure, who realys that Jones "was running and cutting fine while doing individual drills" Friday. To be sure though, it's still worth verifying the wideout's status in advance of Sunday's 1:00 ET kickoff.
Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones (toe/hamstring) practiced on a limited basis Wednesday, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.
Jones didn't reach 100 receiving yards in Week 4 for the first time this season -- four catches for 38 yards on six targets -- but the blowout nature of the game spurred the Falcons to burn clock via the run game rather than continue to air it out.
He should return to normal Sunday against a Washington defense that has conceded 13.7 yards per catch and six touchdowns to wide receivers this season.
Struggling Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Roddy White recorded just two catches for eight yards on four targets Sunday against Houston.
White and fellow receiver Julio Jones took a back seat as the Falcons did most of their damage on the ground. The favorite target of quarterback Matt Ryan in this one was Leonard Hankerson, and White's utter inability to contribute anything of substance over the last three weeks has got to be very troubling for owners.
With Jones usually dominating the touches at wide receiver, there won't be enough to go around for White if he continues to get outplayed by Hankerson.
Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones turned six targets into just four catches for 38 yards in Sunday's blowout win over the Houston Texans .
Jones was due to come back down to earth at some point, but owners would've surely expected a significantly greater contribution considering the Falcons scored 48 points.
The team took a 28-0 lead into the second half, so they could afford to feed some mouths other than Jones in this one, but it would be shocking to see Julio kept this quiet again anytime soon.
Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones (toe/hamstring) is active for Sunday's contest versus the Houston Texans . The fifth-year pro will seek to continue his onslaught of opposing secondaries against a unit that has given up 13.9 YPC to wideouts this season.
