FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) - Julio Jones insists the apparent foot injury that has limited him the first three days of Atlanta Falcons training camp is no big deal.

Jones took part in individual work but was held out of team drills for the second straight day Saturday. He was pulled out of the first practice on Thursday. The star wide receiver says the injury is "definitely nothing to worry about."

Jones had his left shoe off and was seen rolling his foot over a ball on the sideline during Saturday's team drills. He has had two surgeries on his right foot.

Jones and coach Dan Quinn haven't revealed details of the injury. Quinn said a key Saturday was seeing Jones "explode and push off it."

Quinn says he expects Jones to have full clearance as early as Sunday.
