Matt Ryan: Julio Jones ‘doing OK’ after ankle injury
Julio Jones gave his fans a scare when he left Thursday night’s preseason game with an ankle injury.
Jones was termed questionable to return to the Atlanta Falcons’ game against the Miami Dolphins, but he was held out for the rest of the game as a precaution.

It sounds like the injury was not very serious.
Falcons head coach Dan Quinn told NBC that Jones could have returned to the game if it were the regular season. Atlanta quarterback Matt Ryan also did not seem worried about his top target.
“I think he’ll be OK,” Ryan said of Jones during an interview with NBC’s Michele Tafoya. “You never like seeing someone go down especially in the preseason, but I think he’s doing OK.”
Jones caught 136 passes for 1,871 yards and eight touchdowns last season and remains one of the most productive receivers in the league. Falcons fans can exhale knowing that Jones should be fine.
