Titans WR Julio Jones back at practice
Tennessee Titans wide receiver Julio Jones returned to the practice field Tuesday for the first time in three weeks.
The Titans have been playing it safe with the health of the two-time All-Pro, whom they acquired in a trade with the Atlanta Falcons in June.
Jones, 32, left practice early on Aug. 2 after he landed awkwardly when catching a pass from quarterback Ryan Tannehill and had been sidelined since. Tuesday, Jones reportedly was fully dressed, worked against scout team defenders and completed drills on his own.
Tannehill didn’t sound worried about his lack of preparation time with Jones.
“We’ve had limited reps together even in practice situations,” Tannehill told reporters Tuesday. “Feel confident we could make it work if we had a game today, but we don’t have a game today. We’ve got a few weeks to get this thing right and continue to work together and be on the same page when we do get that opportunity.”
Jones, a seven-time Pro Bowl selection, missed seven games with assorted injuries in 2020. He has 848 receptions and 60 touchdowns in 135 games (134 starts), all with the Falcons.
