FLOWERY BRANCH — Falcons All-Pro wide receiver Julio Jones, who’s recovered from offseason foot surgery, returned to 11-on-11 action at training camp on Wednesday. 

He had a bunion, a bony bump on his left foot that caused him to miss substantial practice time late last season, surgically removed in March.

He was limited for the first five practices of training camp. 

Despite being slowed by the injuries, Jones turned in another spectacular season with 83 catches for 1,409 yards and six touchdown catches last season. 

In the playoffs, Jones recorded 19 catches for 334 yards and three touchdowns. He made a spectacular catch in the Super Bowl to move the Falcons to the 22-yard line with 4:40 to play.
