02/07/17WRJulio JonesToeQUESTIONABLEJones will have his toe evaluated in a month to determine if surgery is necessary, Vaughn McClure of ESPN reports.

Jones has been dealing with the injury since early December and was forced to miss two games because of it. Even though he was able to tough it out during the playoffs, turf toe can be a troublesome injury, especially for receivers, who are constantly planting and making cuts on their routes. If it is ultimately decided that Jones will need surgery, his participation in organized team activities could be delayed until he is fully recovered.

02/06/17DBDesmond TrufantPectoralQUESTIONABLETrufant (pectoral) is optimistic he will be healthy in time for May practices, Michael Cunningham of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Trufant was placed on injured reserve with a torn pectoral Nov. 29 and had surgery briefly after. The cornerback had one interceptions and two forced fumbles through nine games played and is undoubtedly one of Atlanta's top playmakers in the secondary. His absence was recognizable during Sunday's Super Bowl, where the Falcons gave up 466 passing yards and two touchdowns to Patriots' quarterback Tom Brady. Whether or not Trufant is able to get healthy for May practices, he should be be back before training camp, where he will provide a boost for Atlanta's pass defense.
