Falcons head coach Dan Quinn said Wednesday that Hardy (shoulder) will likely be back to full strength by the time training camp arrives, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

For the time being, Hardy continues to partake in individual drills during OTAs as he works his way back from offseason shoulder surgery. Hardy's sleeper potential heading into 2018 was diminished when Atlanta selected Calvin Ridley in the first round of April's draft, but Hardy should still have a path to snaps in four-wideout sets while competing for kick-returning duties. The 5-foot-10 Hardy made the most of his limited opportunities in 2017, hauling in three touchdown receptions despite being on the field for only 33 percent of the Falcons' offensive snaps.
