FLOWERY BRANCH – Falcons cornerback Dunta Robinson suffered a slight hamstring injury and missed Sunday’s practice.
“He was out today because of a tight hamstring,” Falcons coach Mike Smith said. “He’s going to be like all of our guys like Todd McClure and Tony Gonzalez, we’re going to manage those guys. Right now, we are going to see how he feels (Monday) and see if he’s ready to go.”
Robinson was the team’s major offseason pick-up. He was signed as a free agent to a six-year $57.5 million contract.
He’s slated to start at one of the cornerback spots. He joined the team on the field for the last half hour of practice.
Also, tight end Colin Peek suffered a right knee strain that will not require surgery.
