FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. -- The Falcons ruled both defensive lineman Marlon Davidson and receiver Russell Gage out of the upcoming game against Washington on Friday's official injury report.
Cornerback A.J. Terrell wasn't on it at all. He has gone through the concussion protocol and has been cleared to play Washington. He was full participant in this practice week, leading to his return. He missed one game after suffering a concussion in a Week 2 loss to Tampa Bay, and will be welcomed back to a secondary that has been playing better of late.
Terrell's by far the team's best cornerback, someone with star power if he development continues at its current clip. T.J. Green filled in well during a win over the Giants, and showed the Falcons have solid injury protection should another injury arise.
