Trufant – who recently signed a five-year extension with Atlanta – suffered a pectoral injury and was placed on IR, missing the remainder of the Falcons’ season.
After dealing with a lingering foot injury for majority of the second half of Atlanta’s 2016 season, Jones underwent foot surgery in early March.
Two of Atlanta’s defensive ends, Clayborn and Shelby, saw limited action last season with injuries keeping them on the sidelines for a significant amount of time.
Shelby saw action in just six games in his first season with the Falcons due to suffering a torn Achilles in early October. Clayborn tore his bicep during Atlanta’s divisional round playoff game versus the Seattle Seahawks, ending his postseason.
