Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones delivered good news in person regarding his recent foot surgery.

“I’m good,” Jones said per D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “The foot’s good. I’m two weeks out now, I think, but it’s good.”

According to the report, Jones was wearing a walking boot but appeared to be getting around without limitations. The four-time Pro Bowler specified that his main goal for now is “recovery.”

Jones played several weeks of the 2016 while dealing with the foot injury and fortunately only had to sit out two games. He underwent surgery on March 6.

Jones made his first trip to the Super Bowl this past February only to see his team gradually fall behind and lose to the New England Patriots 34-28 in overtime.

Along the course of the 2016 season, Jones tallied 83 receptions for a total of 1,409 yards and six touchdowns. This is quite impressive taking into account Jones played with an injured foot much of the time.

Jones is one of the most talented receivers in the league, and from the sound of his news, his healing process seems on track.
