The Falcons haven’t had a lot of positive news this year, but they got some today as their 2020 first-round pick has been cleared to return from the COVID-19 list.
We have activated CB AJ Terrell off of the reserve/COVID-19 list.

Terrell has missed the last two weeks after testing positive for the virus, and the Falcons have desperately missed his presence in the secondary. He struggled a bit in Week 1 against the Seahawks but was one of the highest-graded corners in the league in Week 2 versus the Cowboys.
With Terrell back, the Falcons will finally have their top two corners on the field at the same time. Kendall Sheffield missed the first three weeks of the season with a foot injury, but returned last Monday night against the Packers and played pretty well. Hopefully, having both of them back will give Atlanta’s secondary an identity other than being one of the worst in the league.
