Jones corralled eight of nine targets for 108 receiving yards during Sunday's 34-33 loss to the Cardinals.
The two-time All-Pro was able to get right against Arizona's bottom-10 pass defense, after managing an average of 47 receiving yards between Weeks 4 and 5. His scoreless streak has now been pushed to three games, however, as Devonta Freeman (two), Austin Hooper (one) and Calvin Ridley (one) were instead the beneficiaries of Matt Ryan touchdown passes Sunday. Still, Jones has a chance to get back into the end zone Week 7 when the Falcons take on a Rams defense that has given up a four-touchdown passing performance in two of its past three outings.

Per usual, Jones' limited participation in practice won't impact his gameday availability. He was quiet the past two weeks in an offense that's been spreading targets around to five key players, but a matchup with the leaky Arizona defense should help him get back on track.

Jones is easing into Week 6 prep as he deals with a hip injury. With progress made on that front, he may be able to ditch his designation entirely upon the release of Friday's injury report. In any case, Jones' availability doesn't seem to be in much question for Sunday's visit to Arizona.

Held out Wednesday with a hip injury, Jones' return puts him on a good path to ditch the issue at some point before Sunday's game in Arizona. Thursday's injury report ultimately will reveal his level of participation.
Jones was held out of Wednesday's practice due to a hip injury, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.
Jones has had little issue playing through health concerns and producing during his career. In fact, he hasn't missed a contest since Week 15 of the 2016 season. Nonetheless, his status will be monitored closely as the week proceeds to learn whether a DNP is possible Sunday at Arizona.
Jones (undisclosed) won't practice Wednesday, Kelsey Conway of the Falcons' official site reports.
Jones has often played through injuries in his career, but on this occasion it's unclear exactly what he's dealing with. Wednesday's injury report will divulge if he's tending to a health concern.
Jones managed only three catches for 42 receiving yards during Sunday's 53-32 loss to the Texans. He also fumbled once, but the ball rolled out of bounds.
The six-time Pro Bowl wideout has been held to a combined seven receptions for 94 yards over the past two weeks after averaging more than 88 receiving yards per game with four total touchdowns Weeks 1 through 3. Atlanta got its star involved early Sunday against Houston, but he was held without a catch over the final 33:57 of regulation. Now sputtering at 1-4, Atlanta will likely look to feed the ball to its most dominant offensive player in what feels like a must-win game in Week 6 against a Cardinals defense that allowed 262 passing yards and two touchdowns to Cincinnati on Sunday.
Jones caught four of seven targets for 52 receiving yards, and ran the ball once for a gain of one yard during Sunday's 24-10 loss to Tennessee.
The two-time All-Pro wideout amassed a total of 234 receiving yards for the Falcons between Weeks 2 and 3, but he was held to three catches for 34 yards through the first three quarters of Sunday's contest. Tennessee also succeeded in keeping Jones out of the end zone for just the third time in Atlanta's past 12 regular-season games. Upcoming in Week 5 for Jones and the Falcons receiving corps is a matchup against a Texans defense that allowed just one Panthers wideout to exceed 45 receiving yards Sunday.
Jones hauled in eight of nine targets for an output of 128 receiving yards and one touchdown during Sunday's 27-24 loss to the Colts.
Jones went up and corralled a 10-yard touchdown pass from Matt Ryan in the fourth quarter, out-muscling Colts defensive back Quincy Wilson for the jump ball and getting Atlanta within a field goal with four minutes and change remaining in the game. Atlanta was unable to close the gap or overtake Indianapolis from there, but Jones continues to prove himself as a fantasy rock star, with two 100-yard outings and four touchdown catches on the young season. Week 4 presents a matchup against a Tennessee defense that has given up five touchdown passes over its past two games.
Jones hauled in five passes for 106 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 24-20 win over the Eagles.
Jones stated earlier in the week that he "didn't play really well" in the Falcons' first game of the season. The star wideout delivered on his promise of performing better Week 2, putting up a huge game from a fantasy perspective and even scoring the game-winning touchdown for Atlanta. Jones' bugaboo has been finding the end zone -- or at least his coaching staff's reluctance to draw up red-zone plays for him -- so seeing the receiver hit paydirt three times through two games is a strong sign for his fantasy value heading into a matchup against the Colts on Sunday.
Jones admitted Thursday that he "didn't play really well" in the Falcons' Week 1 loss at Minnesota, Kelsey Conway of the team's official site reports. "I was coming into the game limited but it's football, things happen," Jones said. "I was ready to go. My wind is there just being out there playing. I'll be way better this week than I was last week for sure."
Jones hadn't played a snap of note since Week 17 of last year, so his lacking marks (5.2 yards per catch and 2.8 yards per target) are somewhat explainable. Fortunately for the wide receiver, he continued his TD trend from the second half of 2018, securing his sole red-zone look for a score. While he was seen with a wrap on his wrist one day after the season opener, Jones hasn't made an appearance on Falcons injury reports this week, setting him up for a fruitful performance Sunday against the Eagles.

On the heels of signing a lucrative extension with the Falcons on Saturday, Jones was targeted a team-high 11 times during Sunday's loss at Minnesota, turning those looks into six catches for 31 yards and one touchdown. One day later, he was seen with a wrap on his left wrist, but the issue didn't impact his reps in the first session of Week 2. Look for Jones to have a more fruitful outing this weekend against an Eagles defense that was carved up by Case Keenum to the tune of 380 passing yards in the season opener.

Jones has had an eventful month to date, coming out of the preseason with a foot injury before eventually signing a three-year, $66 million extension Saturday. After gaining clearance for the Falcons' season opener in Minnesota, Jones was mostly contained (six catches for 31 yards on 11 targets) but salvaged his day with a touchdown late in the fourth quarter. He emerged from that contest with a wrap on his left wrist, but it's unclear if that will impact his practice reps Wednesday.
Jones has his left wrist wrapped Monday, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.
Jones appears to have picked up a wrist injury of unknown severity during Sunday's loss to the Vikings. There doesn't yet appear to be any reason to worry about the star wideout's Week 2 availability, though his participation in practice could be worth monitoring as the week continues.
Jones hauled in six of his 11 targets for 31 yards and a touchdown in Week 1 against Minnesota.
Jones was held in check despite a heavy share of targets, as his longest reception went for just 11 yards. A late two-yard touchdown catch kept his performance from being a disaster, but it was still a letdown to begin the season. More optimistically, he remained heavily targeted and also found the end zone -- something he failed to do until Week 9 in 2018. Jones will face Philadelphia in Week 2, and he will look to bounce back with a more efficient effort.
Jones agreed Saturday with the Falcons on a three-year, $66 million contract extension that includes $64 million guaranteed, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
The deal comes in slightly higher than the one Michael Thomas signed with the Saints earlier in the offseason, making Jones the highest paid wide receiver in the NFL. As a result, the 30-year-old will play in Sunday's contest against the Vikings after teasing earlier in the week he'd sit out if he didn't get a contract extension.
Jones is expected to sign a multi-year extension Saturday that will make him the NFL's highest-paid wide receiver, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.
Ian Rapoport of NFL Network noted the Jones' contract extension should come in somewhere around three years, $66 million, which would indeed make him the highest paid wide receiver in the NFL. The star player raised some eyebrows earlier in the week when he suggested he might not play this weekend if he hadn't received his much-discussed contract extension, but with a deal now looking imminent, and Jones not listed with an injury designation this week, the wideout is in line to play in Sunday's game against the Vikings.
Jones (foot) isn't listed on the final injury report for Sunday's game against the Vikings, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.
Jones was listed Thursday as a 'limited participant (not injury related - rest)'. There was some speculation his rest might be related to contract discussions, but Jones quickly shut down the idea, noting that he was bothered by minor soreness after practicing on turf all week. The wide receiver confirmed Thursday that he'll play in Sunday's game even if he hasn't signed a contract extension, per William McFadden of the Falcons' official site.
Jones suited up for Friday's practice, according to D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
Jones said Thursday that his foot is still a little sore, and he was limited at practice as a result. It won't be clear until after Friday's practice ends whether or not he was limited again, but the fact he was in uniform in the first place bodes well for his chances of playing in Sunday's season opener against the Vikings like he expects.
Jones was listed as a limited practice participant Thursday with a non-injury related designation, D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
In essence, Jones was rested, but the aforementioned designation goes against his own comments from a post-practice media session. He blamed his lack of reps on being "a little sore" from practicing indoors on turf all week, per Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com. Jones also was asked whether his chances to play Sunday in Minnesota are tied to ongoing talks on a contract extension. "Nah. It's just like as far as me, what I'm doing is getting me ready to go," he said. While not exactly a ringing endorsement, Jones appears on pace to be available this weekend.
