Atlanta player news and notes

FLOWERY BRANCH - Player news and notes from Atlanta practices.

--RB T.J. Duckett averaged six yards on five carries. He deserves credit for showing patience, making excellent reads and hitting holes hard.

--TE Alge Crumpler showed again why he is an elite player. He was the first read for QB Matt Schaub, who delivered a perfect spiral down the seam for a 25-yard touchdown early in the fourth quarter.

--LT Kevin Shaffer limped off the field in the third quarter with an undisclosed leg injury, but he didn't miss a snap and returned to help the offense score two fourth-quarter touchdowns.

--FS Bryan Scott, depending on which statistical service you choose, either had one tackle or none. That kind of production is inexcusable for a third-year veteran who started and took every defensive snap.

--SLB Demorrio Williams all but disappeared on some plays and was flattened on others as New England pulled guards to get him out of the way on big gains. Hopefully, Williams can use this letdown as a learning experience. Recommended Stories
