Sources tell Rapoport that Jones will have a full evaluation on his foot after the Super Bowl and surgery is either likely or possible, depending on the source he spoke to.
Beyond that, Rapoport says that Jones has also been dealing with a sprained ankle, but this will not require surgery like his toe is.
The toe surgery is expected to require months to recovery, but won’t threaten his availability for the start of the 2017 season.
Jones is still expected to see the same amount of playing time against the Patriots in the Super Bowl.
Jones, 27, is a former first-round pick of the Falcons back in 2011. He’s currently in the final year of his six-year, $81.432 million contract that includes $47 million guaranteed and stands to make a base salary of $11.5 million for the 2017 season.
In 2016, Jones appeared in 14 games and caught 83 passes for 1,409receivingceivign and six touchdowns.
