Falcons WR Julio Jones probably won't do much until training camp

What does Julio Jones @juliojones_11 need to do to get ready for training camp? Falcons head coach Mike Smith thinks not much, other than just getting his surgically repaired foot ready. Smith said Saturday the team's focus is "strictly" on getting Jones ready for camp, which opens in late July. That means he won't be present much, if at all, during OTAs.
Jones suffered a broken left foot in early October last year and missed the rest of the season after undergoing surgery shortly thereafter.

Fantasy Analysis:

The Falcons have said all along that Jones is doing just fine in his recovery. This doesn't change any of that. As long as he's ready for training camp -- and he should be -- the team will be happy.
Jones was a beast last year before breaking his foot, gaining 587 yards in five games. Injuries are becoming a concern with him, especially those of the foot variety since Jones fractured the same foot in 2011. But a full season from him is going to mean easy WR1 numbers. Jones played in every game in 2012 and gained more than 1,200 yards with 10 touchdowns. He is only 25 years old.
