Shembo, an inside linebacker, has rushed the passer only a handful of times this season but has shown flashes of ability to get to the quarterback. Shembo said he lined up on the outside for four plays during the 30-20 defeat at the Giants on Sunday.
“I would like to do more of it,” Falcons defensive coordinator Mike Nolan said. “He fits on the outside. He did it in college. He’s stout enough to play that. That is something we will continue to probably use as we go forward.”
