Johnson, a third round pick in 2010, is battling Garrett Reynolds for a starting job.

Also, tight end Marquez Branson suffered a left knee injury and did not practice.

That pic of Vance Walker tells it all. He’s just standing there watching the play.

Please give Schuyler Oordt a tryout at TE. He sure can catch the ball. 6′-5″—-260. Why not? 4.6 speed

Hose, you don’t even know what his assignment was on the play. He could very well have been doing what he was supposed to do.

Actually, it’s Shaun Rogers, not Shawn Rogers.

@ Coleski__Nice measurables, but does he fit what we do here in the ATL. Clearly there is a reason he is available. Perhaps he lacks the intelligence, committement or character that is required for TD. TD knows more than me and you probably do too. Hey, I wanted TD to draft Glenn Dorsey instead of Matt Ryan (I was stupid ok).

When are ya’ll gonna learn that SeenThisB4 is Dled’s alter-ego? You can tell by the way he talks in his videos vs what Seen says on all DLED’s blogs. Seen’s purpose is to stir up debate on the blog and get people typing. If you notice, Seen very RARELY posts on any other blog but DLED’s. All the AJC writers have an alter-ego on their blogs. It’s an old news trick. Don’t worry DLED, your secret is safe with me………………….. HAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!

I noticed on Sunday morning that Johnson was not there. Garrett Reynolds was playing rt guard with the starting unit. We will find out on Friday night how effective Reynolds is at guard if Johnson is still out. Reynolds looks more like a tackle to me.

Also great news getting Snelling back with us!
