Julio Jones (knee) held out of practice

Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones was held out of Wednesday’s practice at the University of Washington with a knee injury.

Jones, who played 50 of 67 offensive snaps in last Sunday’s 23-16 win over the Denver Broncos, did not appear to be hobbled in the locker room after the game. He had just two catches for 29 yards in the contest. wholesale jerseys

Falcons coach Dan Quinn initially indicated Jones would be limited Wednesday. However, Jones was not on the practice field as the team began individual drills. Starting left guard Andy Levitre also was held out with a knee injury. wholesale jerseys

“They participated in the walk-through,” Quinn said of Jones and Levitre. “I imagine them moving to full tomorrow. The exciting thing is we could have every player back practicing tomorrow.”

Quinn was referring to having rookie starting linebacker Deion Jones and De’Vondre Campbell back from ankle injuries Wednesday, along with fellow linebacker Paul Worrilow back off groin surgery. All three were limited. Defensive end Brooks Reed also was limited with a thumb injury. wholesale jerseys

Both Deion Jones and Campbell said they’ll be ready to play Sunday, which will help enhance team speed on defense. If Campbell is indeed back in the lineup, it will provide a major boost in terms of covering talented Seahawks tight end Jimmy Graham.

“Oh, I’m playing,” Campbell said. “Definitely going to play. I might not be starting unless Coach (Quinn) feels comfortable putting me out there starting, but I’m definitely going to play this week.” wholesale jerseys

Cornerback Desmond Trufant (wrist) and wide receiver Mohamed Sanu (elbow) both had full participation in practice. Sanu had been limited by a shoulder injury but that did not show up on the injury report Wednesday.

As for Julio Jones, he has been nagged by injuries since the start of the season. First it was an ankle, then a calf, and now the knee. Jones was not on the injury report last week prior to the Denver game. wholesale jerseys
