Southward did not attend Tuesday's OTA and it is not known how long he'll be sidelined.
The biggest news was that the team plans to move
Shembo had 59 tackles for the Falcons in his rookie season, but he'll likely play more of a role in the pass rush from the outside. He had nine sacks as a senior at Notre Dame while playing OLB.
Quinn also plans to use
Southward had 23 tackles, one sack and two pass defenses last year.
Southward was drafted early in the third round in 2014 and racked up 23 tackles, one sack and one interception while playing 257 snaps across 13 games. His role in the defense of incoming head coach Dan Quinn has yet to be determined.
