Falcons' Desmond Trufant: Hopes to be ready for May practices
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Trufant (pectoral) is optimistic he will be healthy in time for May practices, Michael Cunningham of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Trufant was placed on injured reserve with a torn pectoral on Nov. 29 and had surgery shortly thereafter. The cornerback had one interception and two forced fumbles through nine games played and is undoubtedly one of Atlanta's top playmakers in the secondary. His absence was recognizable during Sunday's Super Bowl, where the Falcons gave up 466 passing yards and two touchdowns to Patriots' quarterback Tom Brady. Whether or not Trufant is able to get healthy for May practices, he should be be back before training camp, where he'll provide a boost for Atlanta's pass defense.

Falcons' Desmond Trufant: Placed on IR
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

The Falcons placed Trufant (pectoral) on injured reserve Tuesday, Curtis Jackson of the team's official site reports.

Trufant tended to a shoulder injury throughout November, missing two games as a result. He was diagnosed with a torn pectoral over the weekend, and with season-ending surgery on tap, the Falcons made the obvious roster move. With Trufant sidelined, Jalen Collins will assume starting cornerback duty opposite Robert Alford for the rest of the campaign.

Falcons' Desmond Trufant: Scheduled for surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Trufant (shoulder) is scheduled for surgery Thursday, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Trufant is set to miss the remainder of the season, a major knock for a Falcons secondary sitting last in the league with 282.2 passing yards allowed per game. Jalen Collins will consequently step into a starting role.

Falcons' Desmond Trufant: Out with torn pectoral
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Trufant has a torn pectoral that is expected to require season-ending surgery, ESPN reports.

Trufant was considered a game-time decision as late as Friday, so his diagnosis took a sudden turn for the worse. Jalen Collins will likely step in and start at cornerback with Trufant out.

Falcons' Desmond Trufant: Questionable for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Trufant (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Sunday's contest against the Cardinals.

Considered a game-time decision by head coach Dan Quinn, Trufant was looking to keep his absence to just one outing with the help of the Falcons' Week 11 bye, but a shoulder injury capped him at limited showings this week. If sidelined again Sunday, Trufant will yield his starting cornerback spot to Jalen Collins.
