FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. Cheap Rangers Jerseys . -- Atlanta Falcons star receiver Julio Jones insists the apparent foot injury that limited him from full participation in training camp again on Saturday is no big deal.Jones took part in individual work but was held out of team drills for the second straight day. He was pulled out of the first practice on Thursday. Talking to reporters for the first time in training camp, Jones said the injury is definitely nothing to worry about.Precautionary reasons, Jones said, adding but Im good to go, 100 percent. Just taking it slow.Jones had his left shoe off and was seen rolling his foot over a ball on the sideline during team drills. He has had two surgeries on his right foot.Jones and coach Dan Quinn have not revealed details of the injury. Quinn said a key Saturday was seeing Jones explode and push off it and make him feel comfortable doing that.He looked great doing that, so we anticipate him getting back (for full practice) in the next three or four days, Quinn said.Im not going to rush it, but I think it will be sooner than later, Quinn said. Im not going to say it has to be by tomorrow or has to be by Tuesday, but Id be surprised if it wasnt by tomorrow or Tuesday.The Falcons are off on Monday.Jones, coming off his first All-Pro season, said he often deals with minor injuries.Im just so explosive. I always get something thats tight or something, he said. Its good. I just keep getting treatment and stretching it out. ... But Im good. Its nothing serious or anything like that thats going to prevent me from playing.Jones said he tried to convince Quinn he was ready for full clearance on Friday and Saturday.Hell be like: `Yeah, its good. I know you can. You know, I dont doubt you at all. But were just going to be on the safe side, Jones said, quoting Quinn.The receiver said he understands the coachs caution.Were not trying to prove nothing to anyone right now, Jones said. Its a long training camp. And weve got the season coming up that weve got to get ready for.Perhaps only quarterback Matt Ryan is as important as Jones to the Falcons hopes this season. Even a small injury to Jones at the start of camp is a big concern, especially after veteran receivers Roddy White and Devin Hester were released. The team signed Mohamed Sanu, but after Eric Weems, there isnt much experience elsewhere on the depth chart at the position.Having Jones watch team drills has meant more snaps for such young receivers as Justin Hardy, who could start in three-receiver sets, Aldrick Robinson, Nick Williams and rookie Devin Fuller. The team signed former Duquesne receiver Chris King, who joined practice on Saturday.Game notes Saturday was the first day in pads, and it was no surprise some players didnt abide by Quinns edict to avoid tackling to the ground. Quinn said he would offer more reminders on the topic of pushing it right to that limit where youve got to go full-speed but youve got to be under control, too.---Online:AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and AP NFL Twitter feed: www.twitter.com/AP-NFL Wholesale Rangers Jerseys .

LONDON -- Russias hosting of the World Cup is becoming increasingly problematic for FIFAs leaders after the International Olympic Committee withdrew support for sporting events being staged in the doping-tainted nation.The IOCs move followed this weeks second damning World Anti-Doping Agency report, which accused Russia of state-sponsored doping.The scandal landed at FIFAs door after Russian soccer was for the first time implicated in the alleged doping cover-up by a country that has been entrusted with soccers most prestigious event in 2018.Sports Minister Vitaly Mutko, whose department is accused of orchestrating the deception, is also head of the countrys soccer federation and is a member of FIFAs ruling council.Soccers governing body is standing by the 2018 hosts -- just as it has done throughout six years of scrutiny since the contentious vote to hand the World Cup to Russia for the first time.Preparations for the World Cup are in full swing, Dmitry Peskov, Russian President Vladimir Putins spokesman, said Wednesday. FIFA said yesterday that they are preparing for the World Cup to be held in Russia.And 2018 is not the only countdown. FIFA is less than 11 months from staging the Confederations Cup, an eight-team warm-up competition, in Russia.Dick Pound, the former WADA president who authored the earlier report on doping in Russian track and field, said FIFA now has another credibility issue to confront following McLarens findings.Still recovering from its own corruption scandals, FIFA is now under the new leadership of President Gianni Infantino and secretary general Fatma Samoura, a newcomer to sports governance but with diplomatic experience from the United Nations.In the last 18 months, FIFA has leaked a lot of oil and has a lot of reputational exposure, Pound, a Canadian lawyer and former IOC vice president, told The Associated Press. (Russia) is one of the ethical exposures they have to wrestle with now it involves doping.The escalating doping scandal is not the only issue to cause problems for Russia, though, as it prepares for the World Cup.The safety of fans attending the tournament is under the spotlight after Russia was threatened with expulsion from the European Championship last month over thee violence perpetrated by hooligans in France. Rangers Jerseys 2020. And only this week, Putin ordered organizers in St. Petersburg to speed up construction of the citys troubled World Cup stadium. Putin instructed officials to adopt comprehensive measures to eliminate the gaps in the stadiums construction schedule and gave similar instructions to authorities in Samara and Kaliningrad for their venues.The fact that stadiums are being built for the World Cup should not dictate any discussion about stripping Russia of its hosting rights, according to Pound.There are lots of countries in Europe and elsewhere that could accommodate a World Cup at a couple of years notice, Pound said.When FIFA was asked Wednesday if it retained full confidence and trust in Russia as World Cup hosts, the governing body referred the AP to an earlier statement announcing a full inquiry into the 11 positive tests of Russian soccer players that WADA investigator Richard McLaren said were made to disappear in the state-sponsored doping program from 2011 to 2015.FIFA said it will be in charge of anti-doping programs at the World Cup ensuring the highest standards including the latest science and recommendations by WADA. That will see doping samples flown to laboratories outside Russia during the World Cup for testing.But the IOC, which has announced a series of measures to punish Russian athletes and officials implicated in doping, doesnt believe the country should be hosting any sporting events.In an uncharacteristically tough edict, the IOC executive board ruled Tuesday that it would not organize or give patronage to competitions there for the foreseeable future.Despite those moves, FIFA is still standing by its council member Mutko, who was accused by McLaren of having personally intervened in his role as Russian sports minister to cover up a positive doping test for a foreign player in the Russian Premier League.Perhaps its not a coincidence that the minister of sport is also president of the football federation, Pound said.---Rob Harris can be followed at www.twitter.com/RobHarris and www.facebook.com/RobHarrisReports ' ' '
