You definitely want to throw this one into the category of sights for sore eyes. Julio Jones, after missing the Tennessee Titans‘ game versus the New York Jets in Week 4 and their divisional clash in Week 5 versus the rival Jacksonville Jaguars, returned to practice ahead of an all-important AFC clash between the two-tone blue and one of the league’s best teams.
Perhaps you’ve heard but Jones and company are at home this week for the NFL’s final game of what should be an interesting slate this coming weekend. The Buffalo Bills are the opponent.
Something tells us that Buffalo’s going to put up some points, so seeing as how this game could evolve into a shootout, seeing signs that one of the Titans’ best offensive weapons might be available puts a smile on one’s face.
Get a look at Julio Jones at practice.
Any time a future Pro Football Hall of Fame inductee is added to the roster, and he returns after a two-week absence, you can bet a few cell phone cameras will get some work. Here are the best tweets from Tennessee’s practice on Hump Day.
Julio gets an extra day to heal as the Titans play on Monday Night Football. If he can go, that will decrease a few point spreads that, at this point, favor the Bills. Luckily, Tennessee isn’t traveling for this one.
Call it a crazy theory, but as difficult as the Titans’ schedule is, they got a few breaks with its construction, and this is one of them. It’s much better to get the Bills in a home game in October than it would be to have to travel to Orchard Park in January where the temperature would be much more frigid.
So far, Julio has hauled in 12 receptions for 204 yards. If there was ever a time for him to have a breakout game for his new team, this would be the time.
