  • Falcons' Adrian Clayborn: Misses practice
    By RotoWire Staff

    Clayborn was absent from Thursday's practice due to a hamstring injury, Vaughn McClure of reports. Clayborn presumably suffered the injury in last week's victory over the Saints. He recorded his team-high ninth sack in the contest. The severity of the injury is unknown at this time, as the team could have just been opting to exercise caution by keeping him sidelined Thursday. Thus, his status should continue to be monitored throughout the week.

  • Falcons' Adrian Clayborn: Logs sack in win
    By RotoWire Staff

    Clayborn notched his ninth sack of the season in Thursday's 20-17 win over the Saints. The sack was his lone tackle of the game and his first quarterback takedown since the six-sack explosion against the Cowboys in Week 10. The 29-year-old has only 19 tackles (17 solo) in 13 games this season and has provided little IDP value outside of the incredible performance against Dallas.

  • Falcons' Adrian Clayborn: Just one tackle Monday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Clayborn was held to just one solo tackle against the Seahawks on Monday, though he did score a touchdown on a fumble recovery. Clayborn posted a monstrous six sacks against the Cowboys in Week 10, but of course that type of performance isn't explicable. His Week 11 matchup was highlighted by the fumble TD, but the tackle total isn't much of a change from most of his outings, as his only game with more than two tackles was his six-sack game.

  • Falcons' Adrian Clayborn: Sees limited time Sunday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Clayborn (biceps) saw five snaps in the Falcons preseason loss to the Steelers on Sunday. Clayborn had surgery on his biceps after suffering a tear in January. He originally was expected to face a five-month recovery timetable, which has since lingered into training camp. After seeing limited work in practice, the veteran finally made his return to the field Sunday. Barring any setbacks, he seemingly is on track for full health entering Week 1 of the regular season and projects to be a rotational defensive end for the team.
