Falcons' Desmond Trufant: Back on the field
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Trufant (pectoral) returned to OTAs on Tuesday, D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal Constitution reports.

Trufant was expected to return for training camp so his early appearance on the field is a positive sign. The cornerback tore his pectoral muscle in November and ended the season on injured reserve. Now back, he'll look to solidify his position as starting cornerback alongside Robert Alford.

Falcons' Desmond Trufant: Inks five-year extension with Falcons
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Trufant agreed to a five-year contract extension with the Falcons on Saturday, D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Trufant was expected to become a free agent following the 2017 season, but the Falcons have opted to lock up the 26-year-old corner for the foreseeable future. He has started every game he has played since being drafted by the team in 2017, but his season was cut short this past year due to a torn pectoral muscle. The Washington product provided 55 tackles, 17 passes defended, two interceptions, and a forced fumble in nine games before being placed on IR. He hopes to be ready for May practices, and will head into training camp primed for a productive year as the team's starting right cornerback.

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.
