Falcons' Grady Jarrett: May return in Week 7
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Head coach Dan Quinn said Monday that he hopes to get Jarrett (ankle) back for the Falcons' Week 7 game against the Giants, Vaughn McClure of reports.

Though Jarrett missed his second straight game in sitting out Sunday's win over Tampa Bay, he did seem to progress somewhat in his recovery from an ankle injury. The dependable defensive tackle was a non-participant in practice preceding the loss to Pittsburgh in Week 5, but was able to take the field on a limited basis last week for the Falcons' Tuesday and Wednesday sessions. Atlanta wants to get Jarrett back for a showdown with the explosive Saquon Barkley in Week 7, and a Giants rush offense that ranks among the bottom 10 teams in the league (87.5 yards per game).

Falcons' Grady Jarrett: Will not play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jarrett (ankle) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers, Vaughn McClure of reports.

This will be the second straight absence for Jarrett, and it comes despite the fact that head coach Dan Quinn said Thursday that the defensive tackle was making good progress in his recovery. It's unclear how long Jarrett is going to be out for, but it appears the Falcons are going to continue evaluating him on a day-to-day basis.

Falcons' Grady Jarrett: Improving in recovery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Head coach Dan Quinn indicated that Jarrett (ankle) is on trajectory to return in the near future, Will McFadden of the Falcons' official site reports. "He is making big improvement," Quinn said Thursday. "He can step off and push off and get off. So, he'll take it a step further today with the rehab portion of things, and then we'll make an assessment as we get into Friday."

Atlanta desperately wants to get its young defensive tackle back into the lineup, with three other starters -- Keanu Neal, Ricardo Allen and Deion Jones -- already on the shelf for an extended period of time. The front seven is attempting to hold down Tampa Bay's struggling ground attack in Week 6, but it remains to be seen if Jarrett will contribute to that effort, having missed his fifth consecutive practice Thursday. Peyton Barber, Ronald Jones and Jacquizz Rodgers have collectively failed to record a touchdown on the season, and no member of the trio has exceeded 70 rushing yards in any of the Bucs' four games.

Falcons' Grady Jarrett: Week 6 status remains unclear
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Head coach Dan Quinn said that he expects Jarrett's (ankle) status for Week 6 to be determined Thursday at the very earliest, Kelsey Conway of the Falcons' official site reports.

Jarrett missed his first game since Week 16 of the 2015 season when he sat out a 41-17 defeat to the Steelers on Sunday, as James Conner erupted for 110 yards and two touchdowns against a depleted Falcons front seven. Atlanta is absolutely desperate to get back in the win column amidst a loaded NFC South, meaning the team may lean towards firing him up, even against a Bucs team that hasn't had a running back exceed 70 rushing yards yet this season.

Falcons' Grady Jarrett: Sheds boot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jarrett (ankle) was absent his walking boot Thursday, Jason Butt of The Athletic reports.

The former Clemson standout is dealing with a sprained ankle and has already been ruled out for Week 5, but as implied by this news, he seems to be progressing. Head coach Dan Quinn wouldn't rule out Jarrett past Week 5, but for the time being, it will be Jack Crawford, Terrell McClain, Deadrin Senat and the newly signed Michael Bennett in line for more snaps.
