Update: Jones (knee) could return to full practice as early as Sunday, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports. 'He's fit and knows it well, so I'm not going to rush it,' head coach Dan Quinn said Saturday. 'But I think it's going to be sooner than later. I don't have necessary have a, 'It has to be by tomorrow [Sunday] or it has to be by Tuesday.' But I'd be surprised if it wasn't tomorrow [Sunday] or Tuesday.'
Analysis: Jones tweaked his knee in the first practice of training camp Thursday, but his noted explosiveness was on display Saturday, indicating that he should indeed take on every practice rep in the near future. However, with an off day scheduled Monday, the Falcons could very well exercise caution with the stud wideout.
Jones had nine catches for 149 yards in Sunday's loss to New Orleans.
Jones moved to second place in the NFL single-season records for receiving yards and catches with 136 for 1,871 yards. Jones passed San Francisco's Jerry Rice, who had been second with 1,848 yards in 1995. Detroit's Calvin Johnson set the record with 1,964 yards in 2012. Jones passed Antonio Brown's 129 catches in 2014 to finish the season behind Marvin Harrison's record 143 receptions in 2002.
