Corey Peters, Zeke Motta go on PUP list
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

The Falcons placed defensive tackle Corey Peters and safety Zeke Motta on the PUP list to start camp. Peters is rehabbing from a torn Achilles he suffered last December, while Motta has a neck injury that could jeopardize his career, per the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

"Corey will be rehabbing on the side to start training camp," coach Mike Smith said. "But we have been very optimistic about his work in the offseason with our guys in athletic performance, with the trainers and the doctors. As soon as they clear him, we’ll get him back and on the field. ... He’s has done a very good job with his rehabilitation."
