Jones’ has new toe injury, will be ‘ready to rock’ for Texans

FLOWERY BRANCH — Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones, who was limited in practice on Thursday, suffered an injury to the top of his foot in addition to his hamstring injury, but will be "ready to rock" against the Texans on Sunday, said Falcons coach Dan Quinn.

Running back Tevin Coleman (ribs) and tight end Jacob Tamme (concussion) did not practice.

Jones, who was named the NFC player of the month, did not practice on Wednesday.

Quinn was encouraged about Coleman’s recovery.

“He was able to run and get going,” Quinn said. “He’s moving forward. It was good to get him back out running.”

Also, Jones participated in the walk-through on Thursday before practice.

“It’s on the top of foot,” Quinn said. “It’s not a turf toe at all. I’m not exactly sure where the injury took place at all. He’s doing well with it and we anticipate him being ready to rock.”

Safety Ricardo Allen (knee), runnning back Devonta Freeman (toe), returner Devin Hester (toe) and linebacker Brooks Reed (groin) were also limited in practice.
