Unfortunately, Atlanta Falcons All-Pro wide receiver Julio Jones has become a veteran of foot and toe procedures over the years.
He's dealt with a broken foot, detected after he participated at the 2011 NFL scouting combine, following his college career at Alabama.
He broke that same right foot in October 2013.
He's currently recovering from a procedure in March to remove a bunion from the foot.

The physician who performed the surgery, Dr. Robert Anderson, of Charlotte, initially gave Jones a recovery period of 4 to 5 months.
Jones underwent the procedure in early March, so he's about 3 months into his rehabilitation timetable. Training camp begins in the final week of July.
The 4-time Pro Bowl receiver spoke for the first time on Tuesday about his rehab routine and how he is handling yet another procedure on his foot.
"It was good just to be back out on the grass and just testing it out," Jones said. "I felt great. Just working my way into it; just easing into it."
The last time we saw Jones on a football field, the Falcons lost Super Bowl LI to the New England Patriots in overtime.
Jones finished the game with 4 catches for 87 yards.
The Falcons will need Jones this year if they want to get back to the big game.
"We're just gradually getting back," Jones said. "I'm not trying to press anything. Got some time."
