Falcons' Dee Alford: Good to go for Week 8
Alford (hamstring) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Panthers, Michael Rothstein of ESPN.com reports.
Alford missed the Falcons' Week 7 contest versus the Bengals due to a hamstring injury, but it appears like he'll be able to return to action Sunday against Carolina. With fellow defensive back A.J. Terrell (hamstring) already ruled out this week, the 24-year-old is in line to operate as Atlanta's No. 2 cornerback this weekend behind Darren Hall.... See More ... See Less
Falcons' Dee Alford: Questionable against Panthers
Alford (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Panthers, Michael Rothstein of ESPN reports.
If Alford's able to play, he'll likely slide into the starting role vacated by A.J. Terrell, who has been ruled out due to a hamstring injury of his own. Alford's injury appears to be less serious, but it remains to be seen whether he'll be capable of playing through it come Sunday.... See More ... See Less
Falcons' Dee Alford: Limited Wednesday
Alford (hamstring) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice.
Alford returning to practice in any sort of capacity is a great sign for Atlanta as he missed last week. Through his six games with the team he's recorded 15 tackles, one interception and two pass breakups. The cornerback will have two more chances to practice and recover prior to Sunday's contest against Carolina.... See More ... See Less
Falcons' Dee Alford: Labeled day-to-day by coach
Alford (hamstring) is considered day-to-day, per coach Arthur Smith, Tori McElhaney of the Falcons' official site reports.
Alford exited Atlanta's Week 7 loss to the Bengals due to the injury, but it sounds like he may not need to miss much additional time. His participation level in practice leading up to the Falcons' Week 8 matchup with Carolina should help dictate Alford's availability. The Falcons can ill afford to have him miss much time with fellow cornerback A.J. Terrell (hamstring) labeled week-to-week.... See More ... See Less
Falcons' Dee Alford: Won't face Bengals
Alford (hamstring) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Bengals, Michael Rothstein of ESPN.com reports.
Alford suffered the injury during Atlanta's Week 6 win over the 49ers, and he played a season-low 11 snaps as a result. He has 15 total tackles, two passes defended and an interception through six games this season, so his absence will leave a gap in the Atlanta secondary. Mike Ford is a candidate to see more snaps in Alford's absence.... See More ... See Less
Falcons' Dee Alford: Shines in preseason opener
Alford collected eight tackles (six solo) and one interception during Friday's preseason opener against the Lions.
Alford operated as a backup to Casey Hayward and A.J. Terrell but ended up playing the majority of the game (46 defensive snaps). The undrafted cornerback out of Tusculum hasn't made much noise during training camp, but he made his presence felt during his first NFL action, finishing with a team-high eight tackles. He also arguably made the play of the game when he blanketed Kalil Pimpleton and dove to intercept a Tim Boyle pass during the Lions' first drive of the second half. Behind Hayward and Terrell, the Falcons' cornerback depth is questionable, so Alford should get plenty of opportunities to earn a spot on the 53-man roster.... See More ... See Less
