Falcons coach Dan Quinn believes that wide receiver Julio Jones is 10 days to two weeks away from fully participating in practice.
“I would say in the next 10 days to two weeks, I would imagine individual (drills),” Quinn said on Wednesday. “He does all of the night walk-throughs. When he can go full haul, then we’ll cut him loose with everything.”
Jones, linebacker Deion Jones and newly signed defensive Allen Bailey worked off to the side with trainers. Bailey is just get acclimated after an the offseason and doesn’t’ have a known injury.
“When they get back to full go, we’ll ramp them back up more,” Quinn said. I would imagine they’ll be back into the practice part soon and then the team part soon. Generally, we are more cautious in the (exhibition) season with (Julio Jones).”
Jones said he’s is no rush to return.
“I’m getting better every day,” Jones said. “I’m taking small strides. The organization, Q, everybody has been doing a great job with me on the side and letting me go at my pace to get back to full speed.”
Julio Jones has done more coaching of the wide receivers.
“As far as helping the young guys it’s been great,” Jones said.
