Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (foot) is reportedly back to running routes at full speed after spending most of the early part of training camp recovering from a foot injury, according to D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
Huddle Up: The plan all along has been to take it slow with Jones and reduce his reps, so things appear to be progressing just as everyone hoped. Jones should be among the top five receivers off the board on draft day, if not the first one.

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (foot) is still rehabbing a foot injury that kept him out of June minicamps, according to head coach Dan Quinn on Monday, July 22. Jones had a bunion removed immediately after the 2018 season and was limited to working with trainers in Monday's opening day of training camp. The absence is not related to his contract situation.
Huddle Up: At this stage, it's more of a "keep an eye on it" approach than time to change your draft plans. The star receiver has a history of foot problems, but this one has nothing to do with it, as far as we can tell. Jones remains an elite WR1 in all fantasy settings.
