Bad hamstring or not, Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones will play against the New Orleans Saints on Thursday night. Jones said that only a cut off foot would keep him from playing on Thursday night.

Jones has battled through injuries his entire career, so this shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone. Jones has had multiple hamstring injuries, toe injuries and foot injuries but still manages to put up astronomical numbers regardless.

Jones has been quite as of late, but don’t expect Jones to be quite much longer. Jones should put up big numbers against rival New Orleans under the bright lights. Jones always plays his best when the entire nation is watching, so this Thursday should be no different.
