  • Schaub is expected to have his $2 million option picked up by the Falcons, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports. The 38-year-old signal-caller logged his first Falcons start since 2005 when he took the ball Week 8 against Seattle, with Matt Ryan sitting out due to an ankle injury. In Ryan's relief that day Schaub put up 460 yards passing and completed 26 of 31 pass attempts in the second half as Atlanta rebounded from a 24-0 deficit to lose by just seven points, 27-20. Still capable of keeping his team competitive despite having 16 years of NFL tread on his tires, Schaub is expected to remain in the Atlanta QB room for 2020.

  • Schaub completed 50 of 67 pass attempts for 580 yards, three touchdowns and one interception in six appearances -- including one start -- during the 2019 season. The 38-year-old signal-caller threw a first-half interception and saw his team fall into a 24-0 hole during his lone start of 2019, but he led the Falcons back to within striking distance before eventually absorbing a 27-20 loss to Seattle. Schaub is under contract for one more season, but third-year quarterback Kurt Benkert could give him competition for the backup job in 2020.

  • Schaub completed five of nine pass attempts for 55 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 35-22 loss to the Buccaneers. The wily veteran hooked up with Calvin Ridley for a touchdown in the final two minutes of regulation, providing a cushion to the box score and delaying the inevitable defeat momentarily. Schaub came in off the bench after Matt Ryan was sacked and stripped on the preceding drive, providing Tampa Bay with a defensive touchdown to put the game out of reach at the 3:06 mark of the fourth quarter. With Ryan set to get the starting nod for Atlanta's Thanksgiving showdown against New Orleans, Schaub will revert to his backup role in Week 13.

  • Schaub will start Sunday's contest against the Seahawks after Matt Ryan (ankle) was ruled out Saturday. Schaub has attempted just 16 passes in the last four seasons backing up Matt Ryan in Atlanta, but the 38-year-old looked sharp in last week's relief of the 2008 No. 1 overall pick, completing all six of his passes for 65 yards and a touchdown against a Rams' defense that admittedly was playing with a substantial lead. The Falcons figure to rely heavily on the running game in order to take pressure off Schaub, but considering running back Devonta Freeman is averaging 3.5 yards-per-carry through seven games, it's entirely likely the veteran will be forced to move the ball through the air at some point throughout the contest.

  • Schaub has been working with the first-team offense during the Falcons' first two practices of Week 8 in preparation for starting Sunday's game against the Seahawks, D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. Matt Ryan was sidelined for practices Wednesday and Thursday after suffering a right high-ankle sprain in last weekend's loss to the Rams, putting his streak of 154 consecutive starts in major jeopardy. The 38-year-old Schaub is one of the NFL's more experienced backups, but before replacing Ryan late in the Week 7 game, he hadn't seen any meaningful regular-season action since 2015. More clarity on Ryan's status for Sunday's game should come following Friday's practice, but if Schaub is pressed into the starting role, Atlanta would presumably lean on a more ground-oriented attack if the game script allows for it.
