  • Trufant delivered the dagger against the Packers after picking up a backwards pass and scampering for a touchdown in Sunday's 34-23 win. He also logged two tackles (both solo) and a pass defensed. Trufant displayed some of his trademark playmaking ability while notching his second turnover in as many games to open the campaign. Considering opponents may often find themselves playing from behind, Trufant should continue to have plenty of tackle and turnover opportunities this season.

  • Falcons' Desmond Trufant: Back on the field
    By RotoWire Staff

    Trufant (pectoral) returned to OTAs on Tuesday, D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. Trufant was expected to return for training camp, so his early appearance on the field is a positive sign. The cornerback tore his pectoral muscle in November and ended the season on injured reserve. Now back in action, he'll look to solidify his position as starting cornerback alongside Robert Alford.

  • Trufant agreed to a five-year contract extension with the Falcons on Saturday, D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. Trufant was expected to become a free agent following the 2017 season, but the Falcons have opted to lock up the 26-year-old corner for the foreseeable future. He has started every game he has played since being drafted by the team in 2017, but his season was cut short this past year due to a torn pectoral muscle. The Washington product provided 55 tackles, 17 passes defended, two interceptions, and a forced fumble in nine games before being placed on IR. He hopes to be ready for May practices, and will head into training camp primed for a productive year as the team's starting right cornerback.

  • Trufant (pectoral) is optimistic he will be healthy in time for May practices, Michael Cunningham of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. Trufant was placed on injured reserve with a torn pectoral Nov. 29 and had surgery briefly after. The cornerback had one interceptions and two forced fumbles through nine games played and is undoubtedly one of Atlanta's top playmakers in the secondary. His absence was recognizable during Sunday's Super Bowl, where the Falcons gave up 466 passing yards and two touchdowns to Patriots' quarterback Tom Brady. Whether or not Trufant is able to get healthy for May practices, he should be be back before training camp, where he will provide a boost for Atlanta's pass defense.

  • Falcons' Desmond Trufant: Placed on IR
    By RotoWire Staff

    The Falcons placed Trufant (shoulder) on injured reserve Tuesday, Curtis Jackson of the team's official site reports. Trufant tended to a shoulder injury throughout November, missing two games as a result. He was diagnosed with a torn pectoral over the weekend, and with season-ending surgery on tap, the Falcons made the obvious roster move. With Trufant sidelined, Jalen Collins will assume starting cornerback duty opposite Robert Alford for the rest of the campaign.
