There’s no real reason to be overly concerned about Julio Jones right now. He is no stranger to playing through nagging injuries, and he is often just limited throughout the week as the Falcons manage his reps. I think we will see more of that heading into their Week 14 matchup with the Rams, but it may be wise for the Falcons to rest their star receiver so he can be healthy as they make a final push for the playoffs.
The Inside Injuries algorithm has moved Jones into the elevated risk category with news of the turf toe injury. While I want to expect another big day for the receiver against the struggling Rams, don’t be surprised if he does still show some signs of his toe bothering him. Turf toe makes it painful to plant and cut, so this injury can really impact a guy like Jones, who relies on being explosive.
