Didn't see LB Justin Durant on the practice field today for the Falcons. Been absent all week with an elbow injury and was supposed to see the doctor yesterday. RB Tevin Coleman doesn't have black no-contact jersey on as the last two days. Appears ready to return from fractured rib.

Devonta Freeman beat out fellow second-year player Ra'Shede Hageman in the Falcons' version of "Jeopardy!" yesterday. The two were asked to name some of the assistant coaches currently on staff. "It's embarrassing. I don't want to talk about it," Hageman said. "We didn't know everybody's name. He knew some of the coaches, and I didn't." Hageman couldn't recall which coaches he missed on -- or at least he didn't want to say.
