FLOWERY BRANCH — The Falcons returned from their bye week on Monday.
The Falcons (6-4) are set to face a desperate Arizona squad, which dropped to 4-5-1 after losing to Minnesota 30-24 on Sunday. The game is set for 1 p.m. Sunday at the Georgia Dome.
Here are five things to know about the Falcons on Tuesday:
1. Schraeder agrees to deal. Falcons right tackle Ryan Schraeder, a former undrafted player from Valdosta State, agreed to a five-year, $33 million contract extensions with the Falcons on Monday.
2. Coleman ready to roll. Falcons running back told our JuliaKate E. Culpepper that “I’m feeling 100 percent.”
3. Does NFL need full-time officials? Mike Tomlin’s Steelers beat the Browns on Sunday. There didn’t seem to be any controversial calls by game officials that obviously impacted such a one-sided game. And yet the Steelers head coach, unprompted, griped about the way officials called the game.
4. Trufant back from shoulder, torn pectoral injury. Falcons cornerback Desmond Trufant is going to try to play with his injury, which will likely require offseason surgery he told our Khadrice Rollins.
5. Pro Voting is under way. The Falcons should be well represented at the Pro Bowl this season. The fan voting in underway.
