ATLANTA FALCONS

  • Falcons, 0-3: Next: At Green Bay, Monday, Oct. 5, 8:15 p.m. TV: ESPN. Radio: 92.9 The Game.
  • Updates: Speaking with the media this week, Falcons coach Dan Quinn expressed optimism that the team would have a number of starters back in the lineup for an important matchup against the Green Bay Packers on “Monday Night Football.” Although he didn’t mention any specific players during his press availability on Monday, Quinn did provide further clarification on a number of players while doing his weekly hit with 92.9 The Game’s “Dukes & Bell.” With starting cornerback Darqueze Dennard going on injured reserve Tuesday and rookie corner A.J. Terrell currently on the reserve/COVID-19 list, the Falcons are stretched thin in the secondary. Fortunately for Atlanta, it seems there’s a chance for second-year corner Kendall Sheffield to see his first action of the season after missing the first three games due to a foot injury. “Sheff has certainly worked hard and rehabbed part of him for his foot,” Quinn told the radio show. “He’s looking forward to getting our first practice together, which will be Thursday this week with the Monday game. We’re definitely looking forward to having him back out on the field. We’ll have a better sense after he goes through the three practices to see where he’s at, but we’re very encouraged about him for this week.”
