Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones was running routes full speed with the first-team offense Sunday during the open portion of practice.

Jones, who will not play in the exhibition season, has been working off to the side with the training staff because of a foot injury. This was the first time he's been seen running full speed this offseason.

He ran a crisp tunnel screen route, moving swiftly from the sideline to the right and then turned it up field and ran for about 30 yards.

After the play, quarterback Matt Ryan cam over and they slapped hands.

Jones also was running at full speed during a double-move route drill.
