Contract? Injury? Who knows
Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones seemed non-committal about playing Sunday at Minnesota in the season opener if his contract extension is not finished. “I don’t know,” Jones said when asked if he’ll definitely play no matter what. “What I’m trying to do is be ready. You know what I mean. It’s not if I’m going to play or if I’m not going to play. I’m trying to be out there regardless. I’m coming back from injuries and things like that, but the ultimate thing is being ready when my number is called.” (Atlanta Journal Constitution)
Nerdy Football Analysis: Jones has been relatively quiet this off-season while the two sides try and hammer out a new contract. He’s being vague about any potential injury situation which doesn’t leave fantasy owners a lot to go on. He wasn’t listed on the Wednesday injury report.
