Couple of quick notes today:
- Center/guard Jeffrey Benson was back at practice without the red jersey on, so he was full go. He might have enough time to earn a starting spot at left guard, if Jordan Eason is still out and if the coaches want to reshuffle the line. Either way, Benson’s return is good for depth.
- I continue to be impressed by Acey Palmer, a young receiver who made another very nice catch in one-on-one drills today. Tough to say how much he’ll play, but he’s someone to keep an eye on in the future. Like I said Saturday, he can be inconsistent. He has to clean that up.
- Jamil Cooks is still with the first-team defense, but I don’t think that position has been decided. But Cooks is a great talent – he’s going to play whether he starts or not.
- This will be the last training camp report – the Falcons start full preparation for the season opener tomorrow and so there are sensitive issues that I can’t report on. But there will still be plenty of daily information here on the blog as we go, so stay tuned.
