Falcons CB Desmond Trufant out off concussion protocol

Atlanta Falcons cornerback Desmond Trufant is out of the league's concussion protocol and set to return to practice, coach Dan Quinn said Monday.

Both teams were informed of the situation prior to the game, according to a Falcons official.

When the Vikings defeated the Falcons on Sunday in Atlanta, they were playing in a venue (Mercedes-Benz Stadium) that had just hosted the SEC title game the previous night.

He was unfortunately unable to be a part of the Falcons' run to the Super Bowl a year ago, as he injured his shoulder during his team's Week 9 matchup against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and was place on the injured reserve list.

However, on a short week against New Orleans, they will need a better performance, particularly on offense, to get back on track.

With last four games against NFC South foes, including pair against Saints, they'll either sink or pick up a ton of key tiebreakers.

Trufant has recorded 29 tackles and a team-leading two interceptions in 11 games this season.
