FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. -- Falcons cornerback A.J. Terrell was a full participant yet again during Thursday's practice, a positive sign that he could available for Sunday's game against the Washington Football Team.
That's still up in the air and will be until he is formally cleared to play by going completely through the NFL's concussion protocol. While T.J. Green filled in admirably in a Week 3 win over the New York Giants, the Falcons defense is far better with Terrell in the lineup.
