Falcons receiver Julio Jones to resume practicing fully

Wednesday August 20th, 2014

Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones is set to get back to a normal routine after limited practice time during training camp.

Falcons coach Mike Smith said outside linebacker Kroy Biermann will also get back practicing normally. 

"We're going to start increasing all of these guys as we get closer to the opening game of the regular season; the Saints game," Smith told ESPN.com. "It's important for us to have all of our guys ready to go that are going to play and have to go out and play 60 snaps."

Jones, who missed 11 games last season because of a foot injury, caught two passes for 20 yards in Atlanta’s second preseason game against the Houston Texans. Biermann missed most of last season after suffering a torn Achilles tendon in September.
