Clayborn (biceps) is expected to be fully recovered in time for training camp, Matt Winkeljohn of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. Clayborn tore his biceps during the Falcons' divisional-round playoff matchup with the Seahawks and has spent the last few months rehabbing the injury. The former Iowa standout is expected to serve as a rotational defensive end in 2017 after accruing 22 tackles and 4.5 sacks a season ago.
Clayborn (biceps) faces about four more months of recovery, Vaughn McClure of ESPN reports. Clayborn stated that he faced a five-month recovery from when his torn biceps occurred Jan. 14, so by that measure he faces about four months left in his recovery process. That puts his return at some time in mid-June, so he should be ready for 2017's training camp.
Clayborn (biceps) started rehab on his torn biceps Wednesday, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. Clayborn, who's entering the last year of his current contract, sustained a torn biceps in the Falcons' divisional-round matchup with the Seahawks and sat our the remainder of the playoffs. It isn't clear if his rehab will prevent him from participating in team workouts come April, but there at least doesn't appear to be any concern over his availability for the start of the 2017 season.
Clayborn (biceps) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, Field Yates of ESPN.com reports. Clayborn sprained his biceps Saturday against the Seahawks, ending his season. In 13 games, Clayborn recorded 22 tackles and 4.5 sacks. The Falcons promoted Joe Vellano from the practice squad in a corresponding move. Expect to see increased reps from Ra'Shede Hageman and Dwight Freeney in Sunday's NFC Championship showdown with the Packers.
Clayborn (torn biceps) will miss the rest of the postseason, ESPN reports. Clayborn went down in Saturday's divisional-round victory over the Seahawks. As Atlanta's second-highest leader in sacks, his absence downgrades the Falcons' pass rush and will likely result in more playing time for Ra'Shede Hageman and Dwight Freeney.
