VIDEOS: Julio Jones Touchdowns The Highlight Of Rookie Season (So Far)

Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones returned from an injury that had cost him a handful of games, and didn't wait long before making his presence known. He did this by entering the starting lineup, which caused television broadcast graphics to show him as a starter.

That's Jones' first NFL touchdown, by the way. He's juuust missed on a couple other deep efforts so far this season.
