Latest Falcons RapidReports

Aug. 23, 2011 4:33 p.m. - by Knox Bardeen - Falcons offense needs to step up

OT Tyson Clabo said that the offensive line took a step back from Week 1 to Week 2, but just has to shore a few things up, and expects a really good season: “The first game we did some really good things, (but) the second game we made some mistakes and penalties.” Falcons RapidReports

Aug. 23, 2011 4:24 p.m. - by Knox Bardeen - Walls' effort making an impact

Head Coach Mike Smith likes the size of undrafted free agent CB Darrin Walls, and the effort he’s putting in on defense and special teams: “He had a big special teams play in punt protection. He’s a long guy for a defensive back -- he needs to continue doing what he’s doing (to make the team).” Falcons RapidReports

Aug. 23, 2011 4:14 p.m. - by Knox Bardeen - Falcons take time on starting RG position

Even though the open right guard spot has not yet been decided, head coach Mike Smith isn’t hurrying to choose between OL’s Garrett Reynolds and Mike Johnson just to build offensive line cohesiveness: “We’ve gone two ball games and they (the first-team offensive line) haven’t put our quarterback on the ground for an official sack.” Falcons RapidReports

Aug. 23, 2011 4:01 p.m. - by Knox Bardeen - Smith says Steelers' 3-4 will be a good primer

Head Coach Mike Smith on whether playing against Pittsburgh’s defense in the preseason is a measuring sick for Atlanta’s offense: “They’re an outstanding football team, not just defense – but yes. It’s a 3-4 defense and it’s quite exotic in some of the things they do.” Falcons RapidReports

Aug. 23, 2011 3:59 p.m. - by Knox Bardeen - Smith says Robinson injury not that serious

Head Coach Mike Smith on how this year’s hamstring injury to CB Dunta Robinson compares to last year’s: “It’s not nearly (as serious) as last year when he pulled his hamstring and basically missed the entire training camp.” Falcons RapidReports

Aug. 23, 2011 3:58 p.m. - by Knox Bardeen - Smith: CB Robinson probably out for this week

Head Coach Mike Smith on the hamstring injury to CB Dunta Robinson that has sidelined the cornerback since Aug. 15: “Dunta is doing the rehabilitation runs on the side right now. Our anticipation is that he won’t play this week (against Pittsburgh), but he is making improvements.” Falcons RapidReports

Aug. 23, 2011 3:51 p.m. - by Knox Bardeen - LBs James, Dent return to practice field

LBs Robert James (groin) and Akeem Dent (knee) were back at practice Tuesday. Head Coach Mike Smith praised their efforts: “It’s a very good sign for both of those guys, who have been working really hard to get back. We still need to make an evaluation on how they made it through (practice Tuesday).” Falcons RapidReports

Any news of Corey Peters? :wacko:

Sounds like Darrin Walls might have a good chance of making the team.

He's looked fairly solid, but i havnt gone back to rewatch the Jax game yet.

I haven't read anything lately about Peters' injury. Jay Adams' August 23 notebook gives the latest official injury report from the Falcons, but Peters is not mentioned:

"Injury Update: Smith gave an update on several injured players Tuesday.

CB Dunta Robinson will likely not play against Pittsburgh after an injury suffered just more than a week ago. Robinson also didn’t play against Jacksonville.

Smith did say the injury will not require nearly as much time as last year when Robinson missed almost all of camp with a hamstring injury.

Linebackers Akeem Dent and Robert James returned to full practice today."
