Falcons' Desmond Trufant: Fifth-year option exercised
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Desmond Trufant 's fifth-year contract option has been exercised by the Atlanta Falcons , NFL.com reports.

Trufant has emerged as one of the league's best up-and-coming cornerbacks since being drafted in the first-round in 2013, so it's hardly surprising that Atlanta wants to keep him around as long as possible. Yet to miss a game across his three-year career, Trufant is fresh off a personal-best 70 tackles (55 solo) last season, when he also nabbed a pair of interceptions as a key member of coach Dan Quinn's defensive scheme.

Falcons CB Desmond Trufant (shoulder) out of preseason opener
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer

Falcons cornerback Desmond Trufant will not play in the team's preseason opener against the Titans on Friday as he deals with a shoulder strain, per the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. 

Trufant injured his shoulder during practice Thursday and the Falcons coaching staff doesn't want to take any chances with re-injury. 

"He's going to get treatment today and tomorrow," Falcons coach Dan Quinn said. "Then we are going to try and take it through tomorrow, but that (not playing him) is where we are leaning."
