Jackson not practicing
D. Orlando Ledbetter of the AJC writes that Falcons defensive tackle Grady Jackson is present at the team’s three-day minicamp as expected, but is not expected to actually get action on the field due to recovery from off-season knee surgery.
The severity of Jackson’s knee injury is not exactly known, although his agent, Angelo Wright, indicated that it was not an issue in Ledbetter’s article.
Fellow starting defensive tackle Rod Coleman is also missing mini-camp, but his injury is much more severe. Coleman injured his quadriceps during draft weekend and is expected to miss 3-5 months.
