Falcons WR Julio Jones 'ready to go' versus Packers


Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones is "ready to go" in Sunday's NFC title game against Green Bay Packers despite struggling with a toe injury.

The toe injury sidelined Jones in the middle of the Falcons' 36-20 victory over the Seattle Seahawks last Sunday. He was in and out of the game several times before coach Dan Quinn decided it would be best to bench him.

Jones missed practice on Thursday due to the injury, but said he will be fit in time to face the Packers at the Georgia dome.

"It's fine," Jones told a news conference Thursday. "I will be ready to go."

Even with limited playing time, Jones still caught six passes for 67 yards with a touchdown against the Seahawks.

The Falcons will want Jones ready to go on Sunday. If they defeat the Packers, Atlanta will head to the Super Bowl for the first time in nearly 20 years.
