D. Orlando Ledbetter of the AJC reports that 2009 second round pick William Moore has been cleared to participate in the Falcons upcoming minicamp this weekend. Moore was limited to only two appearances last season after undergoing knee surgery in August, and then suffering a hamstring injury during the season which forced him onto injured reserve.
Per the report, fellow 2009 rookie Peria Jerry will not participate in the minicamp due lingering issues from a knee injury he suffered in Week 2 of last year. Cornerback Brian Williams and wide receiver Harry Douglas also will be held out as they recover from torn ACLs. Per Falcons head coach Mike Smith, all three of those players are not expected to participate in organized team activities later in the month and should return in time for training camp later this summer.
