Here's a look at this morning's local coverage of the four NFC South teams.
Tight end Jeremy Shockey, who has been brought along slowly as he recovers from a broken fibula, is expected to play in this week's preseason game against Cincinnati.
Cornerback Jason David may be falling behind rookie Tracy Porter on the depth chart.
Rookie tackle Jeff Otah allegedly had his SUV stolen by one of Charlotte's most-wanted criminals.
Time for the annual story on how this finally will be a breakout year for linebacker Thomas Davis.
The release of left tackle Luke Petitgout might not have been all about his slow recovery from knee surgery. There's a report Petitgout is facing a four-game suspension by the league.
Don't rule out the possibility of running back Michael Bennett playing a significant role in the offense.
Here's a comparison of the preseason stats for the four Atlanta quarterbacks. Bottom line here: If rookie Matt Ryan plays well this week, he'll be the starter on opening day. If not, the Falcons will revert to veteran Chris Redman.
Defensive end John Abraham, who'd been out with an ankle injury since the first preseason game, has returned to practice.
