"He will be limited in terms of his snaps," Falcons head coach Mike Smith said. "Our number one goal is to make sure that we've got everybody as healthy as we possibly can be, but we know that we have to get these guys some work together and reps. Julio will be out there participating in practice right from the start."​

Jones caught 41 passes for 580 yards and two touchdowns last season before getting injured.
