Trufant eager for his return to action 

Trufant will be back at his left cornerback spot when the Falcons face the Bears at 1 p.m. Sunday at Soldier Field in Chicago. 

“It’s definitely exciting just to get back out there, get back to doing what I love,” Trufant said. “Can’t wait, and it will be a big week for us.”

Trufant turned into an extra secondary coach for Robert Alford and the rest of the cornerbacks while he was injured. Trufant tried to help out where he could last season.

“Obviously, you want to be out there,” Trufant said. “That’s what you work for, what you put the work in for every day, to go out there and play, but it wasn’t my time at that time. So, I moved past it, and I’m looking forward to this year.”
