Falcons' Kendall Sheffield: Back in action Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sheffield (ankle) returned to Sunday's game against the Panthers, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

The 24-year-old exited after tweaking his ankle and was considered questionable to return, but he was ultimately able to retake the field. Sheffield has four tackles and one pass defensed with the Falcons trailing 20-10 during the third quarter.

Falcons' Kendall Sheffield: Dealing with ankle injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sheffield exited Sunday's game against the Panthers with an ankle injury, William McFadden of the Falcons' official site reports.

The 24-year-old missed the first three games of the season with a foot injury, so it's at least good news that he didn't aggravate that injury. Blidi Wreh-Wilson should see more snaps while Sheffield is sidelined.

Falcons' Kendall Sheffield: Decent 2020 debut on MNF
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sheffield collected six tackles and one pass deflection while playing 100 percent of the defensive snaps during Monday night's 30-16 loss to Green Bay.

Though Atlanta's defense as a whole was torched by Aaron Rodgers, surrendering 327 passing yards and four touchdowns to the future Hall of Famer, Sheffield allowed completions on just 50 percent of his targets. The 24-year-old held Rodgers to a 67.2 pass rating when throwing in his direction, but with Darqueze Dennard (hamstring), Keanu Neal (hamstring) and Ricardo Allen (elbow) all unavailable for Week 4, the Falcons were no match for Green Bay's passing attack. Next up is a showdown with NFC South rival Carolina and its quarterback Teddy Bridgewater, who is coming off a 276-yard, two-touchdown passing performance against the Cardinals.

Falcons' Kendall Sheffield: Season debut on tap
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sheffield (foot) practiced fully Saturday and is expected to start Monday's game versus the Packers, Jason Butt of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Sheffield has officially been cleared to return after sitting out the first three games of the season. The Falcons' secondary is notoriously porous, ranking 31st with 350.3 passing yards allowed per game, and Sheffield will attempt to patch it up in his return to the lineup. Last season, he allowed a 110.0 passer rating and two touchdowns when targeted.

Falcons' Kendall Sheffield: First practice session of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sheffield (foot) was a full participant in Thursday's practice, Will McFadden of the team's official site reports.

Sheffield missed Atlanta's first three games of the season due to a foot injury, but he now looks on track for Monday's upcoming contest against the Packers. Per D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Sheffield is expected to slide back into his usual starting role at left cornerback.

Falcons' Kendall Sheffield: Returning to practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Dan Quinn said Sheffield (foot) will return to practice beginning Thursday, William McFadden of the Falcons' official site reports.

Quinn expanded by stating the team will monitor Sheffield's progress during practice sessions throughout the week, and a decision on his availability for Monday Night Football will be made from there. Darqueze Dennard (hamstring) landed on injured reserve Tuesday, and rookie A.J. Terrell is currently on the Reserve-COVID-19 list, leaving Atlanta with a precarious situation in the secondary. This is certainly not an ideal week to be shorthanded, as the Falcons take on Green Bay's Aaron Rodgers, who is boasting a 9:0 TD:INT with more than 295 passing yards per game.

Falcons' Kendall Sheffield: Ruled out to face Bears
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sheffield (foot) is ruled out for Sunday's game against Chicago, William McFadden of the Falcons' official site reports.

Sheffield will miss his third straight contest to begin the season due to a lingering foot injury. His next chance to take the field will come Week 4 in Green Bay during Monday Night Football.

Falcons' Kendall Sheffield: Expected to miss Week 3
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sheffield (foot) is not expected to suit up against Chicago on Sunday, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

Sheffield has missed back-to-back games to begin the 2020 season, and it looks as though he'll need to wait at least another week before retaking the field. Darqueze Dennard stands to continue playing a starting role as long as Sheffield is unable to go.

Falcons' Kendall Sheffield: Won't suit up Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sheffield (foot) has been ruled out for Sunday's game versus the Cowboys, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

Sheffield's season debut will wait another week. His absence leaves the Falcons in a tight spot against the receiver-rich Cowboys, and Darqueze Dennard should maintain his starting role in Week 2. Sheffield will look to get healthy for Week 3's clash against Chicago.

Falcons' Kendall Sheffield: Foot injury persists
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sheffield (foot) did not practice Wednesday, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

Coach Dan Quinn has downplayed Sheffield's foot injury, but it forced the cornerback to miss Atlanta's first game. If Sheffield fails to up his practice participation as the week unfolds, he'll likely be out again Sunday in Dallas.

Falcons' Kendall Sheffield: injury downplayed
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Dan Quinn said Monday he doesn't expect Sheffield (foot) to face a long-term absence, Jason Butt of The Athletic reports.

The 24-year-old was inactive for the season opener due to the left foot issue he was battling during training camp, but it doesn't appear to be a serious concern. Sheffield's status for Week 2 against the Cowboys should receive more clarity once the Falcons return to practice Wednesday.

Falcons' Kendall Sheffield: Officially out Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sheffield (foot) has been ruled out of Sunday's game versus the Seahawks, Will McFadden of the Falcons' official site reports.

Sheffield battled this injury through training camp and was unable to practice all week, so he'll watch from the sidelines Sunday. Darqueze Dennard should see an increase in snaps with Sheffield out, and Blidi Wreh-Wilson could also enjoy a bump in usage.

Falcons' Kendall Sheffield: Unlikely to go Week 1
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sheffield (foot) is doubtful to play Sunday against Seattle after sitting out Thursday's practice, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

The second-year cornerback continues to sport a walking boot, leaving Atlanta with just one of its top three perimeter cornerbacks certain to suit up Week 1. Rookie A.J. Terrell (hamstring) was limited Thursday, making Isaiah Oliver the only member of the group who is completely clear for play at the moment. With Sheffield likely to be on the shelf Week 1, veteran Darqueze Dennard may shift out of the slot and see more snaps lining up on outside receivers.

Falcons' Kendall Sheffield: Can't practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sheffield (foot) was a nonparticipant in Wednesday's practice, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

Sheffield was spotted wearing a walking boot on his left foot at Wednesday's practice, per D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. When healthy, the second-year pro looks primed to handle a rotational role at cornerback, but he'll only have two more opportunities to practice ahead of Sunday's contest against the Seahawks.

Falcons' Kendall Sheffield: Back at practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sheffield (foot) returned to practice Tuesday morning, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

The second-year pro missed a few days of practice while nursing a sore foot. Sheffield will compete for cornerback snaps with A.J. Terrell, Isaiah Oliver and Darqueze Dennard.

Falcons' Kendall Sheffield: Misses second straight practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sheffield was absent from a second consecutive practice session Saturday, D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

It has not yet been announced why Sheffield is not practicing, but an update on his status is expected from coach Dan Quinn shortly. The former Ohio State Buckeye logged 11 starts as a rookie last year, and based on Quinn's high praise of him this offseason, it seems he is slated to inherit a prominent defensive role for 2020 as well.

Falcons' Kendall Sheffield: Garnering praise from head coach
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Dan Quinn believes that Sheffield could develop into the Falcons' No. 1 cornerback, D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. "He's definitely somebody with the speed and short-space quickness to (become our best cornerback)," Quinn said Monday. "I definitely think he has a shot to do that, based on his speed and that I think he's going to continue to grow."

Some advanced metrics providers may consider the coach's assessment optimistic, as Pro Football Focus reported Sheffield as having the 15th-worst coverage grade among 114 qualified cornerbacks last year. He fielded 378 of his 697 defensive snaps in the slot and another 227 as a wide corner, but he'll have to improve in both regards if he is to match up reasonably against the myriad of Pro-Bowl caliber receivers within his own division.

Falcons' Kendall Sheffield: Starts 11 games as rookie
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sheffield (ankle) recorded 43 tackles, three pass deflections and a forced fumble across 16 appearances for the Falcons in 2019.

The rookie from Ohio State saw an uptick in playing time while Desmond Trufant was inactive between Weeks 6 and 10 with a toe injury, and he continued to remain an integral piece after Trufant went down due to a season-ending forearm injury Week 14. Sheffield fielded just 46 total defensive snaps over the Falcons' first five games of 2019, but from Week 6 on, he averaged over 59 defensive snaps per contest, logging 11 straight starts before succumbing to an ankle injury in the finale. Though he was thoroughly battle-tested during his debut NFL campaign, Sheffield ranked as Pro Football Focus' 17th-worst coverage corner among 123 qualified players, while his performance against the run placed fifth worst at the position.

Falcons' Kendall Sheffield: Leaves with ankle injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sheffield won't return to Sunday's game against the Buccaneers after suffering an ankle injury, D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Sheffield has been a starter since Week 6, and he's recorded 36 tackles and three pass breakups over the last 10 games. The rookie fourth-round pick's season is over. Blidi Wreh-Wilson and Jamar Taylor are in line for additional snaps for the remainder of Sunday's divisional clash.

Falcons' Kendall Sheffield: Ready to go Week 12
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sheffield (illness) is active for the team's Week 12 contest against the Buccaneers.

Sheffield had battled an illness throughout the week but is prepared to play Week 12. He's served as the team's slot cornerback and will likely have his hands full trying to keep Chris Godwin in check.
