Falcons Pro Bowl cornerback Desmond Trufant, who suffered a shoulder/pectoral injury against the Buccaneers last Thursday, is “day-to-day” after receiving a second opinion on the injury, coach Dan Quinn said during his weekly radio show on 92.9 The Game on Wednesday.

Trufant was listed as the No. 1 left cornerback on the official injury report released by the team on Tuesday.

Quinn said Monday that Trufant would get a second medical opinion on the injury that forced him to leave Thursday’s game at Tampa Bay.

Quinn said he would update Trufant’s status when the team issues its league-mandated injury report on Wednesday.

Trufant, 26, has not missed a game since the Falcons selected him in the first round of the 2013 draft out of the University of Washington. He’s their top cover man and was named to his first Pro Bowl team in 2015.

Jalen Collins, a second-round pick in 2015, replaced Trufant against Tampa Bay. He played 49 of 80 defensive snaps (61 percent) against the Bucs, He had two tackles and one pass breakup.

“I thought Jalen did a good job,” Falcons coach Dan Quinn said. “I know that he had a challenge on one that was over to the sideline that he’d like to have back. I thought it was a real physical tackle at the goal line which I was very glad to see. He looked fast. He played with good length outside. He did exactly (want we wanted) in terms of the style of play. He did a good job going in. We thought he’d have a chance and he’s stepping up just like we’d expected him to.”

Also, the Falcons signed offensive lineman Blake Muir to the practice squad and waived linebacker Davis Tull. The Falcons a worked out wide receiver Anthony Dable (no college), defensive end Rufus Johnson (Tarleton State), wide receiver Max McCaffery (Duke), defensive end Arthur Miley (Southern), defensive end Lawrence Okoye (no college) and quarterback Ricky Stanzi (Iowa) on Monday.
