Julio Jones had a serviceable Week 1 performance, catching three of five targets for 69 yards and rushing twice for 17 yards. A knee injury prevented him from playing in Tampa Bay’s Matchup against New Orleans in Week 2. With a decimated wide receiver corps – Mike Evans’ suspension and Chris Godwin’s knee injury – Jones is in a position to receive a higher number of targets from Tom Brady against Green Bay in Week 3. Will he play? And if he does, will he be limited? Here’s what we know.

Julio Jones is questionable to play in Week 3
According to The Athletic’s Greg Auman, WR Julio Jones is questionable for Week 3 against the Green Bay Packers.
Jones missed a lot of time last season with the Titans due to injury, and after a promising Tampa Bay debut in Week 1, Jones did not make an appearance in Week 2. He was a true game-time decision, though, so his prospects for Week 3 are higher. Should he play, with WR Mike Evans suspended and WR Chris Godwin questionable, Jones could see a lot of action alongside WR Russell Gage.
