Toilolo (hand) caught one pass for 13 yards on two targets in Thursday's preseason game against the Browns.
Jacob Tamme got the start, but Toilolo and Austin Hooper also got some snaps with the first-team offense. Each player managed just one catch, and while Tamme appears to have an early advantage, there's still time for Toilolo or Hooper to make a move before Week 1. Regardless, the Atlanta tight ends probably won't be a big part of the team's passing game this season.

Toilolo exited Monday's practice with a hand injury and was expected to seek a second opinion. While the team is yet to provide an update, Toilolo's presence at practice would seem to indicate that the issue is nothing to worry about going forward.
