“At this point, Tevin is a little closer than Devonta (Freeman) just from the week of practice,” Quinn said, per the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “So, I’m certainly hoping that will be a break for him. He’s had a really good week.
"Unless there is some type of setback over the next couple of days. I anticipate him being ready to rock.”
Grossman has not played a down in an NFL regular season game since 2011. He has not been on an NFL roster during the regular season since 2013. Although, he was with the Browns in training camp last year.
He is merely competing for a backup role behind starter Matt Ryan.
Freeman and Coleman were slated to miss 2-4 weeks, but both players returned to practice last week. Although, they were held out of the second preseason game against the Jets.
“Our running backs, both of those guys are definitely closer and are doing participation as well,” Quinn said Tuesday before practice, per the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “They are back into the mix today at practice and we’ll take it day-by-day from there. At least they are back and getting closer.”
"Obviously you wish none of your players had surgery," Blank said, per ESPN.com. "If there's such a thing as a benign surgery -- he had a floating chip in his elbow -- he'll probably be back in a couple weeks. We fully expect him for the first game of the year.
"Roddy would love to play 16 games, and we would love to see him play 16 games."
Dan Quinn stated that White is expected to be ready for the regular season opener on Sept. 14 against Philadelphia.
The problem was not caused in practice, but rather from loose particles in the elbow that need to be removed.
