Falcons coach: Jones, Freeman held out of 3rd preseason game

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) Julio Jones and Devonta Freeman are healthy and practicing at full speed again this week but will be held out for the third straight preseason game when the Atlanta Falcons visit the Jacksonville Jaguars on Saturday.

Coach Dan Quinn said the team decided during the offseason not to play Jones, a two-time All-Pro receiver, and Freeman, a former Pro Bowl running back, in exhibitions, so it's likely neither will suit up until Atlanta opens the regular season Sept. 6 at Philadelphia.

Quinn cited the injury history of Jones and Freeman as the reason to keep both players out of preseason games. He indicated that he likely won't change his mind before the Falcons host Miami in the preseason finale Aug. 30.
