FLOWERY BRANCH — Schraeder is new to foot­ball again, and the Fal­cons’ right tackle is kind of low-key about his come­back.

On one hand, he said, “Sun­day can’t get here soon enough,” yet Schraeder also makes it clear that he did noth­ing to rush his re­turn to ac­tion for Sun­day’s game against the Dol­phins af­ter he sus­tained a con­cus­sion Sept.

17 against the Pack­ers.

Fol­low­ing the NFL’s con­cus­sion pro­to­col and his own com­mon sense, he shut out the game af­ter that, stay­ing away from the Fal­cons’ fa­cil­ity, all but stay­ing off his phone, cut­ting his ex­po­sure to light and, frankly, just chill­ing. He went more than 10 days with­out the game.
