Cornerback Desmond Trufant returned to practice from the concussion protocol, but Brian Poole’s back injury must be lingering since the Falcons signed cornerback Leon McFadden and released running back Terrence Magee on Monday.
Also, left guard Andy Levitre (triceps injury) is listed as the starter, but Ben Garland will get the nod against the Saints.
McFadden, who played at San Diego State, has been with the Browns, Dallas, San Francisco and the New York Giants. He’s played in 34 games and has made two starts.
He worked out for the Falcons along with Leodis McKelvin on Thursday, Nov. 30.
McFadden was drafted in the third round of the 2013 draft by the Browns.
McKelvin, 32, was a former first-round pick of the Bills in 2008. The Waycross native played at Troy and spent nine seasons in the NFL, last season with the Eagles.
