Falcons guard Chris Lindstrom, who was supposed to be the crown jewel of the offensive line rebuild, was back at practice on Monday. It signals the start of the 21-day rehab period after his stint on injured reserve with a designation for return due to a broken foot.
Quinn, who will address the media after practice, said on Friday that he wants to get a look at Lindstrom, who was the 14th overall pick in the draft out of Boston College. Lindstrom suffered the injury in the season-opener.
“We still have one player that we are waiting to see where Chris would be,” Quinn said Friday. “We’ll certainly have a better understanding of that as we get into next week. All things for us are on the table, looking to see how we can play better. That’s always part of it.”
The offensive line collapsed against the Saints on Thursday night. The Falcons couldn’t run the ball and gave up nine sacks and 13 quarterback hits in a 26-18 loss. The formula to run the ball to set up the play-action passing attack has not worked consistently this season.
