Trufant (back) recorded five tackles, including one tackle for loss, during Atlanta's 22-10 loss to the Jets on Thursday.

The former Pro Bowl cornerback cost his team with a pass interference penalty while in coverage on Deonte Thompson, but he also made third-down tackles to force punts on a pair of second-quarter drives for the Jets.
