The Atlanta Falcons passing attack is getting stronger. On Wednesday, possession receiver Michael Jenkins returned to practice after missing virtually the entire preseason and both of the first two regular season games with a shoulder injury.
The Falcons have been using Eric Weems and Harry Douglas in Jenkins’ place, and Matt Ryan has been looking for No. 1 wideout Roddy White even more than usual (White was targeted 23 times and caught 13 passes in Week 1 against the Steelers; in Week 2 against the Cardinals, he was targeted 12 times, catching seven balls.
Mike Smith told Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal Constitution that they’ll bring Jenkins along slowly this week. He will likely not start against the Saints.
