There was a lot of drama surrounding Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones this offseason, but since he got what he wanted it's all disappeared. 


However, now something else has emerged. 


Jones was not on the field during the team's Wednesday's practice. 

It seems as though not showing up for practice is the trend this week for wide receivers -- looking at you Antonio Brown. 


While it was unknown at first why Jones' wasn't present for practice, it appears that he's nursing a calf injury. As of now, it doesn't seem to be too serious, but time will tell. 


It seems Jones was at the facility but not practicing. He's had a history of nagging injuries throughout his career, from hamstrings to turf toe that have kept him out longer than you'd expect. It's worth monitoring, but in all likelihood, this won't impact his fantasy stock this week or moving forward.
