"I can't hold it as long as I want to hold it over the course of the game," said Jones, who's coming back from foot surgery. "Right now I probably could give you 65 plays or so, I mean that's a whole game, but the way that I play in the running game and everything, I want to be at full speed for the whole game. I don't feel like I'm there yet."
Jones caught a short pass from Matt Ryan and made some nifty moves for a 52-yard touchdown in the second quarter. He played the entire first half and was targeted five times and finished with two catches for 63 yards and a touchdown.
"It’s important to have all of our guys ready who are going to play 60 snaps," coach Mike Smith said, referring to the regular-season opener against the Saints. "That’s not possible if you’re not practicing every day. You’re going to see over the next 10 days a change in who’s practicing."
Jones is expected to see action with the first-team offense. The starters will likely play into the second quarter, NFL.com reports, though Jones may or may not see limited action while the starters are on the field. He's on his way back from foot surgery.
