The Falcons released Schraeder on Wednesday, Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reports.
Schraeder had been a mainstay at tackle for the Falcons, starting 73 of 88 games in his six-year career. The 30-year-old could find a new team shortly given his long track record as an NFL starter.
Head coach Dan Quinn said Thursday Schraeder will be facing off with Cameron Jordan for most of Sunday's game, since the Saints defensive end has been primarily playing on the left side thus far this season, Kelsey Conway of the Falcons' official site reports.
A tough test looms for Schraeder in Week 3, going up a player who tied for the fourth-most sacks in 2017 (13). After recording six tackles in the opener against Tampa Bay, Jordan picked up two sacks of Tyrod Taylor last Sunday in a 21-18 win over the Browns. Schraeder and the Atlanta offensive line have been underwhelming thus far in 2018, surrendering the ninth-most quarterback hit thus far (15) while ranking right in the middle of the pack with four sacks allowed.
Schraeder was able to take part in positional drills Monday and subsequently cleared concussion protocol, D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
Shraeder has been in concussion protocol since suffering a head injury Week 2 against the Packers. It appears the 29-year-old made enough progress with his recovery during the team's bye week, and he's seemingly on track to start at right tackle Sunday against the Dolphins barring any setbacks.
Schraeder (concussion) was able to take part in positional drills Monday, Kelsey Conway of the Falcons' official site reports.
Schraeder remains in the concussion protocol after suffering the head injury in the team's Week 2 win over the Packers and has been sidelined for the Falcons' past two games. It appears he's made progress with his recovery during the team's bye week, but until he clears the protocol, Schraeder's status for the team's next game Week 6 against the Dolphins will remain cloudy.
Schraeder (concussion) will watch Sunday's matchup against the Bills form the sidelines, Kelsey Conway of the Falcons' official website reports.
Schraeder suffered a concussion in Week 2's win over the Packers and has been unable to clear the team's protocol since. Look for Austin Pasztor to draw another start at right tackle in the 29-year-old's absence.
Schraeder (concussion) has been ruled out for Week 3, ESPN's Vaughn McClure reports.
Schraeder remains under league-mandated concussion protocol. Ty Sambrailo is expected to start in his place Sunday.
Schraeder (concussion) didn't practice Wednesday, D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
Schraeder won't be cleared to return to the field until he passes through all phases of the NFL's concussion protocol. Ty Sambrailo will likely fill in at offensive tackle for the duration of Schraeder's absence.
Schraeder left Sunday's game against the Packers with a concussion, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.
Schraeder will now enter the league's concussion protocol, so the Falcons will be without their top tackle for the time being. Ty Sambrailo will replace Schraeder in his absence.
Schraeder (ankle) started in the Steelers' exhibition loss to the Steelers on Sunday.
Schraeder tore a ligament in his right ankle during the Falcons' Super Bowl loss to the Patriots, and has been limited for much of the team's offseason activities. However, he saw 14 snaps in the preseason game, so he is seemingly on track for a healthy start to the season. The veteran currently projects to start at right tackle in Week 1.
Schraeder (ankle) has been cleared by doctors to resume running, ESPN.com reports.
After tearing a ligament in his right ankle during the Falcons' Super Bowl loss to the Patriots, Schraeder began lifting weights at the team's facilities toward the end of February. The team is set to begin its offseason program on April 17, and the 28-year-old is expected to participate. He appears to be trending toward complete health heading into the training camp.
Schraeder (ankle) restructed his contact Monday, UPI.com reports.
Schraeder agreed to convert his roster bonus into a signing bonus, which will effectively open up $4.8 million for the Falcons in cap space.
Schraeder (ankle) will not require ankle surgery, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. "No surgery," he said. "It's not that big of a deal. It just hurts like heck."
Schraeder went down in the Super Bowl with a torn ankle ligament and wasn't expected to need surgery anyway. However, it still isn't clear when he'll be cleared to play again. He has until April 17 before the Falcons' offseason program starts up.
Schraeder tore a ligament in his right ankle during the Falcons' 34-28 overtime loss to the Patriots in Super Bowl LI, ESPN reports.
Schraeder sustained the injury in the second quarter but didn't exit the game until the fourth. He's scheduled for further testing Tuesday, although surgery is not expected to be necessary.

The Falcons have listed QB Sean Renfree, CB Javier Arenas, LB Tyler Starr, C James Stone, OL Ryan Schraeder, WR Roddy White and DT Cliff Matthews as inactive Week 3 against the Buccaneers.

The Falcons' list of inactives for Week 1 against the Saints includes defensive lineman Corey Peters (Achilles), quarterback Sean Renfree, defensive back Javier Arenas, linebacker Nate Stupar, offensive lineman Ryan Schraeder, offensive lineman James Stone and linebacker Tyler Starr.

Running back Steven Jackson (hamstring) heads the Falcons' list of inactives for Week 4. Also sitting out are cornerback Asante Samuel (thigh), safety Kemal Ishmael, linebacker Jamar Chaney, guard Harland Gunn, offensive tackle Ryan Schraeder and defensive tackle Travian Robertson.
Jackson got hurt in the Week 2 win over the Rams, and it's unclear when he'll return.
The Falcons' list of inactives for Week 2 against the Rams includes running back Josh Vaughan, defensive back Kemal Ishmael, defensive back Zeke Motta, offensive lineman Harland Gunn, offensive lineman Ryan Schraeder, defensive lineman Travian Robertson and defensive lineman Stansly Mopanga.
