Atlanta Falcons cornerback Desmond Trufant joined Dukes & Bell.

Trufant talked about Keanu Neal’s Achilles injury.

“It was hard to watch,” Trufant said. “I feel for him, just knowing how hard he worked coming back from the other injury. But that’s the game we play. It’s not always good to us, but we will bounce back.”

Tru told the guys the defense has to do a better job of getting stops.

“We have to get off the field in key situations,” Trufant said. “We have to get those stops on third down, not get penalties and all those things are very fixable. And we can still do what we have set out to do at the beginning of the year.”

When asked about what challenges the Titans offense might present.

“They play physical, the running backs are physical,” Trufant said. “Mariota can throw it, he can run so we have to be disciplined, limit the penalties and get the ball back to the offense when we have the opportunity and we will be alright.”
