Falcons WR Julio Jones on injuries: If I'm suited up, I'm going

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. -- Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones expressed no concern about the ankle injury that caused him to miss two days of practice this week.

Jones said he'll be ready for Saturday's road divisional playoff matchup against the Philadelphia Eagles.

"The thing with being injured is really just blocking it out," Jones told the media Thursday following practice. "Don't use it as an excuse. If you say you're going to go, go. Don't bring it up in the middle of the game like, 'Oh, this hurt.' Like, we know that. ... So don't let your mind be negative. Just stay positive. If something's hurting or anything like that, I never relate back to it like, 'Oh, it's...' Well, I know it hurts. You don't want to talk about it and bring that stuff up during the game.

"If I suit up, I'm going. I'm not saying anything about it. It is what it is. I'm out there."

Jones, who led the Falcons with 1,444 receiving yards on 88 catches during the regular season, played in all 16 games despite dealing with ankle, thumb, hip flexor, rib and back injuries. He wore tape on both his left thumb and right ankle on Thursday after injuring both late in the season.

Jones has an average of 104.7 receiving yards in seven career postseason games, the highest average of any player in NFL history [minimum five games], according to ESPN Stats & Information.
