Julio Jones to have surgery on foot fracture

Julio Jones, CBSSports.com's second-ranked wide receiver, impressed a lot of people with his blazing speed at the combine. Well, it just got even better: he did what he did with a fracture in his foot.

That's according to Charley Casserly, who reports that Jones went through the entire combine with a fracture in his foot and will now surgery, which will require a screw to be inserted in his foot and which will result an eight-week recovery.

Casserly said he expects Jones to be ready for the start of the season and therefore shouldn't fall too much in the draft.

In fact, there's also a good argument that Jones' value should go up after his impressive performance with such a tough injury.

It had previously been reported that the Rams would "sprint to the podium" if Jones was sitting there when they were on the clock with the 14th overall pick -- the likelihood of that happening should be pretty heavily impacted by how he recovers from his surgery.

Rob Rang has him going to the Rams at 14, while Chad Reuter's spots Jones to the Redskins at 11th overall; considering just how much his stock is rising, the former might not even be an option once the draft rolls around.

Julio Jones to have surgery on foot fracture

snake - In my personal experience, surgery to have my ankle (which I broke and dislocated) reconstructed involved the use of 5 screws to hold bones in place as they healed and added structure and strength to the joint.  I think I can understand your viewpoint, but this should actually stabilize Julio's foot and in essence fix it.  In essence, the surgery should return the strength and mobility to it.  So considering his performance late in the season and at the Combine, he will improve in performance.  I believe that's why his stock will rise, not drop at all.  He has a big heart and superlative inner strength and will.  Imo, he will succeed at a higher level due to this corrective measure!

Don't see how a foot injury that requires a screw can cause his stock to rise? He will now most likely go at 14 to the Rams who have to be a bit gun shy now considering all the WR injuries they had last year. He may even drop. But rise? I doubt it.

Julio Jones to have surgery on foot fracture

antoseven - I think Julio will continue to dedicate himself to building his strength and musculature to eventually grow out of these breaks he's encountered.  Remember he's still young and has filled out considerably since his freshman year.  I believe he'll continue along that plan for conditioning and his bones will benefit from it.  Overall there are very nice comments on this blog, and those who recognized him despite his not getting the hype of others in past seasons, will be pleased and impressed with Julio wherever he ends up in the NFL.  Remember too that he's an excellent blocker, so he's definitely no weinie!

Julio Jones to have surgery on foot fracture

Jones seems to have the makings of a starring NFL career. His attitude is what makes him so special. He has a great skill set also, so he's not the usual overachiever with limited skills. He has an overachiever's attitude with special skills.

Who knows how long his body will hold out in the pros. He may fall apart after a few seasons. He will give a high quality of play though - untill his body deserts him.

This guys is a winner.

Julio Jones to have surgery on foot fracture

Julio has always possessed determination, dedication and the ability to impress greatly even though he's played under adversity most of his CFB career.  For him to have performed this past season as he has despite physical pain, which he has some incredible attitude to play past, has always made him sensational.  Usually covered by 3-4 defensive players, at that.  It is my belief that he will recover quickly and be able to perform at an even higher level than before, as each challenge I've seen him encounter in his career he has met with courage and an inner strength that makes him the #1 WR in the draft, imho.  His excellence at the Combine just confirms what I've always believed about his capabilities.  This surgery is no surprise, and he'll come through as he did at Combine.  Julio is just that gifted.
