2011 NFL Draft: Julio Jones re-checks out ok

Receiver Julio Jones cleared his medical recheck on his fracture foot.

It's okay...don't worry. Alabama wide receiver Julio Jones reports that his medical recheck for his fractured foot went well. Jones is a-okay, and ready to be picked in the 2011 NFL Draft before the St. Louis Rams' get a shot at him with their fourteenth pick in the first round. 

Draft picks typically report back to Indianapolis for a medical recheck, after undergoing extensive medical evaluations there as part of the Combine. Jones was in Indy this weekend. 

Jones will be in New York City for the 2011 NFL Draft, along with fellow first-round pick A.J. Green. I'm assuming they'll be at the players' off-site gatherings as well, showing face with their new teams. Of course, we may have a ruling on the lockout by then, as the court is expected to deliver a decision on the lockout injunction the week before the draft. 

The first round of the 2011 NFL Draft starts Thursday, April 28.
