What Julio Jones said on Thursday  


Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones spoke with the media on Thursday in preparation for Sunday’s game against the Dolphins.

Here’s some of what he had to say:  

On his limited status for practice: “I feel great. We have a plan. I’ve been doing it the whole year. So, limited really means nothing.” 

On the Dolphins: “We just have to go out there and play our style of ball. We can’t worry about what they do.”

On Sanu maybe missing the game: “It’s next man up around here. If he doesn’t (play), it’s the next man up. I don’t know who we’d bring up if its Nick Williams or (Justin) Hardy in his position. We’ll be ready to go.” 

On tight end Austin Hooper: “Hoop has been balling. We are expecting big things out of Hoop this week. Right now, Hoop is having a great week. His preparation is great. He’s catching the ball well. Physical condition, he looks great.” 

On if he injured his hip on the play he dove for a long pass:  “No, I was just running. It wasn’t that play. It was good. I’ve been fine all week and last week, too.”
