Falcons’ Jones, Packers’ Nelson Still Recovering
UNDATED (AP) — Atlanta Falcons All-Pro wide receiver Julio Jones was held out of Wednesday's practice after aggravating his sprained toe in Saturday's playoff win over Seattle.
Jones is expected to play in Sunday's NFC championship game against Green Bay. He missed two games with the toe injury late in the regular season.
Meanwhile, Packers wide receiver Jordy Nelson sat out another practice as he tries to recover from broken ribs. Nelson had to miss last Sunday's 34-31 win over the Cowboys after getting injured in Green Bay's 38-13 rout of the Giants.
