FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. — Falcons coach Dan Quinn says he expects receiver Julio Jones will be “ready to rock” on Sunday against the Houston Texans despite a new toe injury.
Jones participated in Thursday’s practice after being held out Wednesday. He also was held out of the Wednesday practice before last week’s game at Dallas to rest a sore hamstring. This week he is on the injury report with toe and hamstring injuries.
Jones said Thursday, “I’m good to go.”
Quinn says he does not know when Jones hurt his toe. He says it is on top of Jones’ foot and is not a turf toe injury.
Jones’ 34 catches are the most in NFL history through three games. He also leads the league with 440 yards receiving.
