FLOWERY BRANCH http://www.broncoscheapshop.com/cheap-authentic-von-miller-jersey , Ga. (AP) — The Atlanta Falcons are mostly healthy and don’t want to risk getting an important player injured when they close out the preseason this week.

Coach Dan Quinn wouldn’t say so for certain, but it’s unlikely the Falcons will play any starters or key backups Thursday against Miami. The depth chart is nearly full, so Quinn and his staff will use the exhibition to evaluate the last available spots on the 53-man roster.

“There will be some who are competing to be practice squad and developmental and some still battling for the 53,” Quinn said Monday. “The goal is also if it’s not here, it’s somewhere, so those guys can put out tapes to get other opportunities.”

Atlanta opens the regular season Sept. 6 at Philadelphia http://www.brownscheapshop.com/cheap-authentic-jarvis-landry-jersey , the defending Super Bowl champion that knocked the favored Falcons out of the playoffs seven months ago. Quinn wants to keep everyone as healthy as possible.

Star receiver Julio Jones and running back Devonta Freeman have been held out of all the preseason games for precautionary reasons given their injury histories, but neither has missed practice.

Linebacker Deion Jones, cornerback Desmond Trufant, and free safety Ricardo Allen were nicked up in earlier exhibitions and didn’t dress for last week’s preseason loss at Jacksonville.

Quinn sees plenty of areas for the Falcons to clean up. Against the Jaguars, the first-team offense failed to convert its five chances on third down and allowed Matt Ryan to get sacked twice.

The first-team defense wasn’t stout enough against the run and gave up Leonard Fournette’s 21-yard score.

“I thought in this game there were too many leaky yards on some of the runs,” Quinn said. “They had a long touchdown run. Those two explosive runs were uncomfortable for those guys.”

Quinn likes what he’s seen from running back Tevin Coleman in the preseason. The No. 2 running back has worked exclusively with the starters and is averaging 5.4 yards on 18 runs. Quinn also was pleased that the defense looked sharp on the opening drive when cornerback Robert Alford tipped the ball on strong safety Keanu Neal’s interception.

Though the third- and fourth-stringers will take most of the snaps when the Falcons (0-3) face Miami (0-3) J.J. Watt Jersey Red , Quinn still wants his front-line players to improve.

He called out rookie receiver Calvin Ridley in a team film session Monday after the first-round draft pick dropped two passes with the ball in his hands and no contact from the Jaguars.

“Nobody escapes that,” Quinn said. “That’s part of the process we go through to say, ‘Hey, man, we expect you to own that moment.’ It wasn’t just him. There were other people.”

Quinn used the film session as a teaching moment for Ridley, who likely won’t play this week http://www.texanscheapshop.com/cheap-authentic-deshaun-watson-jersey , and a reminder that the Falcons led the NFL in drops last season.

“I think to be a true team, you have to show all the examples — the one where he really lights ’em up good and the ones that he had a drop,” Quinn said.

“Probably his first taste. Last week he was on his way to becoming the next rookie Pro Bowl receiver and then he had a drop. Welcome to the NFL.

“He’s a really detailed and prideful guy. There’s an intensity he brings in practice is past maybe his age. I really respect that part of his game. As mistakes happen, which they’re going to, I generally want to see how a guy rebounds.”

Quandre Diggs moved from cornerback to safety during the 2017 season and it appears the Lions liked what they saw from him in the new spot.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that the Lions and Diggs have agreed on a three-year extension. The deal’s total value is pegged at $20.4 million.

Diggs was a 2015 sixth-round pick out of Texas and made the move to safety for the final five games of last season. He had 22 tackles, a sack http://www.broncoscheapshop.com/cheap-authentic-case-keenum-jersey , a forced fumble and the first three interceptions of his NFL career and the deal suggests the Lions believe that he can continue to make the same impact in the years to come.

Diggs is listed as the team’s starting strong safety and he also figures to see time as a slot corner as the Lions mix and match with opposing offenses during the regular season.
