Jones had surgery to repair a bunion on his foot that had been bothering him for years, according to Ian Rapoport from the NFL Network. Rapoport reported that he was told the surgery will not affect Jones' availability for training camp.

Summary

Julio Jones is in the prime years of his NFL career, as he proved in 2016 with an elite showing of 129 targets for 83/1,409/6 receiving (sixth-best fantasy wide receiver during 2016) over 14 games played. He did see a dip in targets during 2016 after handling a ridiculous 203 targets for 136/1,871/8 receiving during 2015. Jones is just 28 years old and has missed just three games over the last three seasons while going over 1,400 yards receiving in each of those campaigns (he had 163 targets for 104/1,593/6 receiving during 2014). He seems set to dominate the opposition again during 2017, even though the team is transitioning to a new offensive coordinator, Steve Sarkisian. One quick medical note on Jones - he had surgery to repair a bunion on his foot that had been bothering him for years, according to Ian Rapoport from the NFL Network. A bunion is a bony bump that forms on the joint at the base of your big toe. It forms when your big toe pushes against your next toe, forcing the joint of your big toe to get bigger and stick out. Rapoport reported that he was told the surgery will not affect Jones' availability for training camp. (June 7)
