Schraeder back at right tackle for Sunday’s game against Dolphins.
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.
