Sambrailo quietly developed into a solid presence along the Falcons' offensive line after being acquired from the Broncos just before the start of the 2017 season, rotating between the starting left guard and right tackle position in the final four weeks of the 2018 season. The details of the contract remain unknown, but the 26-year-old figures to be in contention for a starting role at either of the two guard spots given the duration of the contract extension.
The severity of Sambrailo's hand injury remains unclear, and no timetable has been given for the 26-year-old's return. It's possible that the team is simply taking a cautious approach to Sambrailo's injury, given that the 2015 second-rounder stands to serve as the team's primary backup should either LT Jake Matthews or RT Ryan Schraeder miss time down the road.
Sambrailo was held out of Sunday's practice due to a hand injury, Jason Butt of The Athletic Atlanta reports.
It's unclear how severe Sambrailo's hand injury is, but the team hasn't expressed concerned that he'd miss an extended period. Look for Daniel Brunskill to pick up some extra reps with the second-team offense while Sambrailo is out.
