Jones pulled from Falcons' 1st practice with minor injury

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) The Atlanta Falcons were concerned on the opening day of training camp when star wide receiver Julio Jones was pulled out with what coach Dan Quinn described as a ''little tweak.''

Quinn wouldn't say what Jones hurt in Thursday's practice. Jones showed no apparent sign of an injury as he walked off the field at the end of practice.

Quinn says he held Jones out even after Jones asked to return. Quinn says he expects Jones to be cleared for Friday's practice.
