CORAL GABLES, Fla. — Foot surgery didn’t keep Julio Jones from attending "Camp Brotherhood"with his Atlanta Falcons teammates.
Although the star wide receiver was still recovering from foot surgery, Jones was in attendance Wednesday at the players-only workouts being orchestrated by Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan.
Jones watched from the sidelines during the hour-long session held at the University of Miami. Wearing socks and flip-flops, Jones showed no signs of a limp and didn’t need crutches or a protective walking boot after undergoing surgery in early March.
