Falcons WR Julio Jones to play Sunday vs. Packers

Buckle up, the Green Bay Packer killer is coming to Lambeau Field Sunday.

Atlanta Falcons receiver Julio Jones, who battled a foot injury this week, wasn’t given an injury designation on the team’s final injury report Friday and is expected to play Sunday.

Jones didn’t practice Wednesday or Thursday but returned as a limited participant Friday.

The Packers better be ready for Jones’ best, because he’s coming to Lambeau Field with bad intentions.

Two of the most memorable games of Jones’ distinguished NFL career came against the Packers.

The first, an 11-catch, 259-yard explosion in 2014, nearly created a comeback win for the Falcons during a wild Monday night game at Lambeau Field in 2014. Two years later, Jones caught nine passes for 180 yards and two touchdowns, including a game-sealing 73-yard score early in the second half of the Falcons’ blowout win over the Packers in the NFC title game.

Over five career games against the Packers, Jones has 29 catches, 592 yards and three touchdowns.

The Baltimore Ravens held Jones to two catches and only 18 yards last Sunday.

After 13 weeks, Jones leads the NFL in receiving yards with 1,323. He’s also fourth in catches with 86, third in targets with 133 and second in catches over 20 yards with 20.

The Falcons have won the last three meetings between the two teams. All there were played in Atlanta.
