Jarrett registered six combined tackles, one sack and two forced fumbles during Sunday's 26-16 loss to the Ravens.
Jarrett put forth a strong showing against Baltimore's No. 13 scoring offense, collecting his first sack since Week 9 and racking up his greatest tackle output of 2018 (previous season-high of five tackles). Despite an eye-catching stat line in his own right, Jarrett's defense was diced up for more than 205 rushing yards -- this after allowing 150 yards on the ground during a Thankgsiving night loss to the Saints. In Week 14 he'll be tasked with slowing down Packers running back Aaron Jones, who has averaged 75.7 rushing yards per game with seven total touchdowns since Week 8.
Jarrett accounted for six tackles and two sacks during Monday's 23-20 win against the Giants.
Jarrett was a stalwart for the Falcons defense in Week 7 after missing back-to-back games for the first time in his career. Not only did Jarrett sack Eli Manning on two occasions Monday night, but he also stuffed the Giants quarterback on a goal-line sneak within the final minute of regulation to run 15 seconds off the clock and further inhibit New York's ability to spark a late comeback. When the the Falcons return from a bye to take on the Redskins Nov. 4, Jarrett will be tasked with slowing down Adrian Peterson and a Redskins rushing attack that averages 119 yards per game.
Jarrett (ankle) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.comreports.
Jarrett has missed two consecutive games, but is ready to retake the field Kelsey Conway of the Falcons' official site reports. Coach Dan Quinn spoke positively of Jarrett's chances to return against the Giants on Monday earlier this week, so it would seem that the defensive tackle is trending in the right direction. Jarrett's situation nonetheless warrants monitoring, as he may need to log a full participation in practice before returning to the starting lineup.
