First-round picks in pile-up on second day of minicamp

While trying to win the race to position drills, Falcons rookie offensive linemen Chris Lindstrom and Kaleb McGary tripped over each other early in the second minicamp practice Wednesday. 

McGary tripped and fell while passing Lindstrom. After tumbling to the ground, the first-round draft picks gathered themselves, got back on the feet and went on about practice. 

Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones (feet), linebacker Deion Jones (foot), defensive tackle Grady Jarrett (precautionary), tight end Austin Hooper (ankle), free safety Ricardo Allen (Achilles), guard Adam Gettis (appeared to be favoring his lower right leg) and defensive tackle Tyeler Davison (unknown injury) did not practice.

Cornerback Kendall Sheffield, defensive end Chris Odom and long snapper Josh Harris worked off to the side with the trainers.
