Rookie McKinley to make debut Sunday

(TSX / STATS) -- FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. -- Atlanta Falcons head coach Dan Quinn said rookie defensive end Takkarist McKinley is likely to make his debut against the Steelers on Sunday. The staff gave McKinley, the team's first-round pick, a full load of practice this week and he came through with flying colors.

"He had a really good week of camp," Quinn said. "After Miami, we said we are now going to take him up from half the reps to the full amount like everybody else. It's something that I'll discuss with him. All systems look good. I haven't discussed it with him, but he had a really good week."

He's recovering from a surgically repaired right shoulder.
