atljbo Posted October 16, 2008 Share Posted October 16, 2008 Role expanding for Falcons WR DouglasBy Dan ParrOct. 16, 2008 Sources in Atlanta don’t expect the Falcons to change a whole lot during their bye week. Things are going far better than anyone expected and there’s not much of a need to tweak lineups on offense and defense. However, there could be a change made on punt returns, the way we hear it. Adam Jennings has handled the duties thus far, but he’s gaining just 6.8 yards per return, which left the Falcons ranked 25th in the league as they headed into their bye week. Jennings also has muffed two returns, which is tied for a league high. Word is rookie WR Harry Douglas will get more looks at the position and he’s being groomed to eventually take over full time. Douglas has made his mark as a receiver and ballcarrier on reverse plays this season, but scouts envisioned him as a punt returner, as well, when he left Louisville.With Laurent Robinson back healthy.......
