INDIANAPOLIS -- Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones will meet with Charlotte, North Carolina-based foot surgeon Dr. Robert Anderson next week to determine whether he needs a bunion on his foot removed, coach Dan Quinn confirmed Wednesday at the NFL scouting combine.
Jones said after the season that he would take a little time before deciding if he needed the procedure. Asked last month which toe he injured, Jones said, "All of them."
He previously had multiple fractures in his right foot repaired by Anderson.
"I trust him," Jones said of Anderson following a 2013 surgery. "He means a lot to me as far as that aspect of it. I put my trust into him because this is my livelihood. This is how I feed my family and everything else."
Jones, an All-Pro for the fourth time in 2016, missed two games late in the season as a result of the injury, which was initially labeled as turf toe. He still finished second in the NFL with 1,409 receiving yards on 83 catches in 14 games, while NFL leader T.Y. Hilton of the Indianapolis Colts had 1,448 yards on 91 catches in 16 games.
Jones' practice time was monitored from the moment the toe injury appeared on the injury report following a Week 13 loss to Kansas City. The Falcons rested him, for the most part, during the playoff bye week leading into a divisional playoff game against Seattle.
A medical source told ESPN that the recovery from having a bunion removed is approximately four weeks.
