    2 years, 3 months ago

    Head coach Mike Smith announced at the start of his press huddle after practice Monday that veteran left tackle Will Svitek will be out for the year with what Smith called an arm injury.

  • Julio Jones Finding Comfort By Slowing Down

    2 years, 3 months ago

    Last year was a whirlwind for Julio Jones. Drafted by the Falcons after they traded a slew of picks for the right to snag him, Jones was whisked into the NFL only to sit idle while the league and the players association worked out a new collective bargaining agreement. That affected him on plenty of [...]

  • Mike Smith Impressed with Peria Jerry in 2012

    2 years, 3 months ago

    The tale of Peria Jerry’s NFL career has been a tumultuous one to this point.

    2 years, 3 months ago

    With the Falcons releasing their first unofficial depth chart of the 2012 season last week, it could be safe to assume that all the starting positions — namely those on the offensive line — were sealed up and accounted for.

    With the Falcons set to start the 2012 preseason slate against the Baltimore Ravens at the Georgia Dome tonight, we take a look at what could be the four key matchups in the exhibition game, including the important experience rookie guard/center Peter Konz could get should he find himself faced with guarding against Pro Bowl [...]

  • Antone Smith a Darkhorse for Return Responsibilities?

    2 years, 3 months ago

    Running back Antone Smith laughs when he thinks back on all his punt and kick return experience. Probably because there isn’t much of it.

    2 years, 3 months ago
