Atlanta Falcons may get huge boost as star player returns from injury
I think anyone who is a fan of the Atlanta Falcons can say that they are ready to see Cornell Armstrong and Rashad Fenton back on the sidelines. Both of them have been put in a tough situation and it has not been pretty.
The good news is that the team is getting healthier at the cornerback position which has struggled in the past.
The Atlanta Falcons are getting CB A.J. Terrell back from injury
If the Atlanta Falcons can get A.J. Terrell back on the field, then their secondary is in a much better place than they have been since he was injured early on in the game against Cincinnati.
He has been practicing this week for the first time since his injury. He has been limited, so his status for Sunday’s game is still unknown, but don’t be surprised if he takes another week off due to the opponent. The Bears are a running team and while it would be nice to have him back, they shouldn’t risk him against a team that isn’t going to throw the ball a bunch.
Watching Cornell Armstrong/Rashad Fenton and Darren Hall as the starting outside corners has not been fun. Teams have attacked them play after play. Replacing Armstrong with Terrell makes the group more formidable.

A.J. Terrell had an amazing season last year and while this year hasn’t been quite as great, he is still better than anyone else on the roster. Seeing Terrell and Hall on the outside, with Isaiah Oliver or Dee Alford in the slot is more respectable than what it has been over the past few weeks.
This is probably the biggest addition the Atlanta Falcons can have to their roster at this point in the season. Hopefully, he comes back fully healed and ready to go.
