Julio Jones misses practice again but says he’s ‘ready to go’ for Sunday

Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones missed practice for the second straight day on Thursday because of a foot injury. The plan is for Jones to participate in Friday’s light practice session in preparation for Sunday’s NFC championship game against the Packers at the Georgia Dome.

“It’s fine,” Jones said. “I will be ready to go.”

Jones has dealt with foot/toe issues for more than a month. He didn’t finish the divisional playoff game against the Seahawks on Saturday after he was in and out of the game several times because of the injury. Jones played 42 of 72 offensive snaps (58 percent) against Seattle and caught six passes for 67 yards with a TD.

Falcons defensive tackle Jonathan Babineaux (shoulder) and wide receiver Taylor Gabriel (foot) were limited for Thursday’s practice, according to the team’s injury report.
