Falcons' Justin Hardy: Participating in team drills
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hardy (shoulder) is participating in team drills during training camp, Will McFadden of the Falcons' official site reports.

Hardy, who underwent minor shoulder surgery in January, has gradually worked his way back to full strength and is taking first-team reps on kickoffs alongside Marvin Hal in addition to seeing action with the first-team offense in team drills during training camp. He's probably the frontrunner in the mix to be the top backup behind Julio Jones, Mohamed Sanu and Calvin Ridley, but Hardy is unlikely to see enough playing time to be of fantasy consideration.

Falcons' Justin Hardy: Progressing in recovery from shoulder surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hardy (shoulder) was recognized by head coach Dan Quinn on Wednesday as a player who is expected to be fully rehabilitated from injury in the near future. "I anticipate (him) almost being ready now, and so we're going to try and do the individual work," Quinn reported when speaking to the media after OTAs, "I really see very few limitations heading into training camp".

For the time being, Hardy continues to partake in individual drills as he works his way back from offseason shoulder surgery. Hardy's potential sleeper value as a receiver was diminished when Atlanta selected Calvin Ridley in the first round of the draft, but he is likely to be slotted in as the No. 4 receiver while being in contention to take over as the team's primary kick returner with Andre Roberts' departure to New York. The 5-foot-10 Hardy made the most of limited opportunity in 2017, collecting three touchdown receptions despite being on the field for only 33 percent of the Falcons' offensive snaps.

Falcons' Justin Hardy: Still in rehab process
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hardy (shoulder) appeared to be doing rehab work on a side field Tuesday,'s Vaughn McClure reports.

Hardy had a minor procedure on his right shoulder in late January after the Falcons were eliminated from the playoffs. He caught either 20 or 21 passes in each of his three professional seasons, but there is some opportunity for a larger role in 2018 after Taylor Gabriel signed with the Bears in March. Hardy figures to compete for the No. 3 receiver job, squaring off against Marvin Hall, Reggie Davis and, potentially, a rookie draft pick. Hardy may be limited at the offseason program but should be back to full strength long before training camp. A 2015 fourth-round pick, he's entering the final season of his rookie contract.

Falcons' Justin Hardy: Looks to capitalize on void at receiver
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hardy could see an uptick in both targets and production now that Taylor Gabriel is likely headed to free agency.

Barring the acquisition of another wide receiver to fill in for Taylor Gabriel's departure, Hardy becomes a viable candidate to garner amplified attention in the Falcons' passing attack. Having hauled in a healthy 69 percent of passes thrown his way in 2017, Hardy has proven to possess sufficiently reliable hands to at least earn an audition as Atlanta's slot receiver. Hardy will aim to break out in his fourth pro season after racking up a monstrous 235 combined receptions during his junior and senior seasons at East Carolina.

Falcons' Justin Hardy: Undergoes minor shoulder surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hardy recently underwent surgery on his right shoulder and is expected to face "a few weeks" of recovery, Vaughn McClure of reports.

While the reason for Hardy's procedure isn't clear, it doesn't sound like he's dealing with any major injury. He should be back in action well before the start of OTAs in late April.
