News: Jones (foot) will have his workload increased, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. Impact: Jones, who continues to work back from foot surgery, will begin practicing every day. The Falcons have been holding him out of consecutive practices, but coach Mike Smith wants Jones to be ready to carry a heavy workload during the regular season. "It's important to have all of our guys ready to [go] that are going to play 60 snaps," Smith said. "That's not possible if you're not practicing every day. You're going to see over the next 10 days a change in who's practicing."(RotoWire, )

News: Jones (foot) caught two passes for 20 yards on four targets in his 2014 preseason debut Saturday against the Texans. Impact: Jones has taken it easy in practice, but he's on track to be ready for Week 1. He caught two of Matt Ryan's three completions in Saturday's game, and was targeted a team-high four times. More importantly, Jones played until the other starters came out, showing no signs of injury.(RotoWire, )

News: Jones (foot) expects to play in Saturday's preseason game against the Texans, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports. Impact: Jones still has yet to practice on consecutive days in training camp following foot surgery last October, but he seems intent on returning to action Saturday against Houston. The team will have the final say, however, and Jones will likely only play one series if he does suit up, but seeing him on the field would provide at least some reassurance as to his health heading into the regular season.(RotoWire, )

News: Jones (foot) was held out of practice Thursday, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. Impact: This is nothing out of ordinary for Jones, who has been on a day-on, day-off schedule since camp began. The Falcons haven't announced whether or not Jones will be on the field Saturday for Atlanta's second preseason game, but based on the cautious approach the team is taking with young wideout, it wouldn't be surprising to see him sit the game out.(RotoWire, )

News: Jones (foot) will increase his workload while remaining on a day-on, day-off schedule, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports. Impact: Jones sat out the Falcons' first preseason contest, which seems likely to continue until he's able to practice most days. However, his aim is active status in Week 1, so potential owners shouldn't worry too much about DNPs in exhibitions.(RotoWire, )

News: Jones (foot) will not play in Friday's preseason game against the Dolphins. Impact: Jones is currently on a regimen where he sits out every other day of practice, and will miss the preseason game as well. It wouldn't be surprising if he skips multiple preseason games in preparation for his ultimate goal, to be ready for the start of the regular season.(RotoWire, )

News: Jones says his right foot has fully recovered from surgery last October, adding that he will be 100 percent when the Atlanta Falcons host New Orleans in the season opener. Impact: Jones showed his breakaway speed at the end of practice late Thursday afternoon when he ran past cornerback Desmond Trufant to catch a 40-yard pass from quarterback Matt Ryan. Though he's not sure if the Falcons will let him play in preseason games next month, Jones' primary concern is making sure he has no setbacks.(STATS, 8:34pm)
