Koo (quadriceps) turned in a full practice Thursday, Will McFadden of the Falcons' official site reports. Koo was a limited participant Wednesday while he nursed a right quad injury, but his ability to take every rep in practice a day later puts him on track to retain kicking duties for the Falcons in Sunday's game versus the Saints. The 26-year-old has actually been more accurate on field-goal attempts than extra-point tries this season, going 29 for 30 and 22 for 25 in those respective situations.
Koo (quadriceps) was limited in practice Wednesday, Will McFadden of the Falcons' official site reports. Koo's right quad is a little sore after he converted all nine of his kicks in last week's 43-6 drubbing of the Raiders. Unless his practice participation declines as the week unfolds, Koo should be able to suit up when the Saints come to town Sunday.
Koo went 5-for-5 on field-goal tries and 4-for-4 on extra-point attempts during Sunday's 43-6 win against the Raiders. Koo continues to enjoy a breakout campaign, as he leads all kickers in scoring with 10.9 points per game this season. In fact, the 26-year-old has established himself a buffer in that category, compiling 1.8 more points per game than any other NFL kicker with a minimum of three appearances this year. Over 18 games in a Falcons uniform since Week 9 of 2019, Koo has converted an outstanding 92.9 percent of his field-goal attempts.
Koo went 3-for-3 on field-goal attempts during Sunday's 24-9 loss to the Saints. During a game in which Atlanta made just one trip to New Orleans' red zone, Koo provided all nine of the Falcons' points, succeeding on attempts from 28, 51 and 52 yards out. With his incredible 96 percent hit rate on field-goal tries, the 26-year-old leads the NFL with 24 conversions despite missing one game this season. Koo is a perfect 5-for-5 from 50-plus yards as Atlanta prepares for a Week 12 matchup against the Raiders.
Koo made both of his field-goal attempts, including a long of 52 yards, also going 4-for-4 on extra-point tries during Sunday's 34-27 win against the Broncos. Koo continues to display consistency from deep range, improving to 3-for-3 on field-goal tries of 50-plus yards this season with his Week 9 performance. The Georgia Southern product has been enjoying a marvelous 2020 with the Falcons overall, as he's 21-for-22 on field goals this season after knocking down 23 of 26 tries in eight appearances for Atlanta last year. A sub-90 percent PAT rate the past two seasons provides room for improvement within Koo's game, but the 26-year-old is starting to look like a keeper for the 3-6 Falcons.
