FLOWERY BRANCH — The Falcons (2-0) are set to play the Miami Dolphins (1-1) in their third  exhibition game at 8 p.m. on Thursday at Camping World Stadium in Orlando.

The Falcons are set to practice at 11:20 a.m. today.

Here are five things to know about the Atlanta Falcons on Tuesday.

1. Julio vs. Bolt. Check out the story. Who you got?

2. Graham to kick. With Matt Bryant out with muscle “tightness,” Shayne Graham will handle the field goal duties against Miami.

3. Beasley set to play. Prized potential pass-rusher Vic Beasley is slated to play against the Dolphins after missing last week’s game against Cleveland with a shoulder injury. 

4. Running Wilds. Brandon T. Wilds, who was signed by the Falcons as an undrafted rookie free agent after a solid career at South Carolina, has turned in a strong exhibition season. He’s clearly contending for a spot on the 53-man roster.

5.  Collins update. Falcons cornerback Jalen Collins, a second-round pick in 2015, will get some extended action over the final two exhibition games before serving his four-game suspension for using performance enhancement drugs.
