Quinn not eager to rush Jones, Freeman back for preseason

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) Falcons coach Dan Quinn says there's no need to rush Julio Jones and Devonta Freeman back to play in an exhibition game.

When Atlanta opens the regular season Sept. 10 at Chicago, Quinn is confident both players will be ready.

Jones, a two-time All-Pro receiver, is finally practicing at 100 percent following right foot surgery in March. After having his reps limited in training camp, Jones is taking all the snaps with the first-team offense.
