Jake Matthews practices in full Tuesday
by Michael Hurcomb |

Falcons offensive lineman Jake Matthews, who sat out Week 2 due to an ankle injury, practiced in full Tuesday. Matthews is hoping to be in the lineup Thursday against the Bucs.

"It was great to have Jake back out to practice today," coach Mike Smith said, per ESPN. "It was good to get him back into the starting lineup. We're pleased with the progress that he's made with the athletic guys in terms of what they've been doing with him. And we've been able to basically go through a full practice with him today."

Still, Smith isn't ready to clear Matthews to make his return to the lineup just yet.

"Anything can happen, but we were really pleased with what he was able to do last night and in practice today,'' Smith said.

Falcons resting Roddy White because of quick turnaround
by Michael Hurcomb |

Even though Falcons wide receiver Roddy White was absent from Tuesday's practice due to a hamstring injury, coach Mike Smith seemed more concerned about resting White for the short turnaround for Thursday's game against the Bucs than the injury.

"It's not important for Roddy to practice,'' Smith said, per ESPN. "We'd like for Roddy to practice, but it's all about getting Roddy ready on a short week. And some of these guys across the league that have some age with them, on a short week, you've got to get them to Thursday. And that's our intention. 

"Right now, our goal is to have Roddy as healthy as he can be for the ball game on Thursday night.''

Matt Ryan expects offense to get back on track Week 3
by Michael Hurcomb |

The Falcons amassed just 309 yards and 10 points in a Week 2 loss at Cincinnati after totaling 568 yards and 37 points in a Week 1 win vs. New Orleans. Quarterback Matt Ryan expects the offense to get back on track heading into Thursday's showdown with the Bucs, per ESPN.

"On a positive note, I think there are some things we've done well, more so in Week 1 than Week 2,'' Ryan said Tuesday. "But I think the run game has been pretty efficient up until this point. We need to continue to be efficient in the run game. 

"And then in terms of the pass game, I think that's an area ... we just need to be more consistent. One of the thing that we've seen is that one week, we're capable of making a bunch of explosives. The following week, we're not. We've got to get to a point where week in and week out, we show up and play the way that we're capable of."
