Jones has dealt with various nagging lower-body injuries through the years. He has said such issues are common because he’s such an explosive athlete with lots of “fast twitch” muscle fiber but that he’s usually able to play through them.
“I think that helps actually when you have had some opportunities to play through injuries,” Quinn said. “’I know what this feels like, I know I can explode and move on it.’”
Quinn said the biggest challenge with handling Jones is finding the right amount of practice reps to allow him to get in sync with quarterback Matt Ryan without aggravating his foot.
