Report: Falcons could line up Trufant on Browns' Gordon
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

The Falcons could line up cornerback Desmond Trufant one-on-one Sunday against Browns prolific wideout Josh Gordon, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Gordon is set to make his 2014 debut after serving a 10-game suspension.

Trufant has taken on the task lately of trying to shut down No. 1 receivers. He matched up against Carolina's Kelvin Benjamin last week.

Falcons defensive coordinator Mike Nolan understands the need to focus on Gordon. "He's a very explosive player," Nolan said. "He's one of the top receivers in the league without question. Big. Strong. Fast. He's a very commanding player at the position."

Pro Football Focus ranks Trufant as the fourth-best cornerback in the NFL this season.
