Falcons Pro Bowl linebacker Deion Jones, whoa€™s been out since the first game of the season, returned to practice on Wednesday.

a€œWe will begin practicing with Deion Jones today,a€ Falcons coach Dan Quinn said before the teama€™s walk-through. a€œYou wona€™t see him on the injury report because hea€™s technically not on the active roster. Ita€™s the next step that we want to make with him.a€

Jones worked off to the side with the training staff last week in preparation for the game against the Redskins.

a€œWe are really pumped,a€ Quinn said.A a€œHe has worked extremely hard to get back. This is the next step for him, beginning the practice portion of his recovery. We are really fired up to get 45 back on the field.a€A 

Jones suffered a broken foot in the season-opening loss to the Eagles on Sept. 6 and was placed on injured reserve.

a€œJust really picking pick up where I left off and being prepared to do that,a€ said Jones before practice. a€œI have been trying to help these guys out as much as I can.a€

Jones has been attending meetings and walk-throughs. He been sharing information from his film review sessions.

a€œI feel like theya€™ve been doing a really good job,a€ Jones said of Duke Riley and Foye Oluokun, who have played in his place. a€œThey realize what it takes to pretty much get stops and be a good defense. Theya€™ve been doing it.a€
