--QB Patrick Ramsey sprained his left (non-throwing) shoulder on a sack in the second quarter. He returned to play in the second half after some concerned that he wouldn't. Coach Steve Spurrier was unsure of how much Ramsey would practice this week and if he definitely would be available for the Giants game.
--WR Laveranues Coles overcame a pair of hits to his head
and neck area to catch 11 passes for 180 yards. Coles' catch total was a career
high, and the performance followed an impressive five-catch, 106-yard effort in
the opening win over the Jets. He appeared unlikely to miss any
--CB Rashad Bauman, the third corner, exited the game with
a strained hamstring. He expected not to miss upcoming practices but Atlanta
took advantage of his absence for a late 42-yard touchdown pass against
undrafted rookie Ade Jimoh.
--RB Trung Canidate looked sharp on
15 carries for 89 yards after being outperformed by backup Ladell Betts in the
opener. Canidate validated coaches' decision to leave him as the starter. He
didn't dance as much en route to the hole.
--CB Champ Bailey
played a key role in limiting WR Peerless Price to two catches for 28 yards.
Price's only first-half catch, a 19-yarder, came against zone coverage. Bailey
spent most of the night one-on-one against the Falcons' best receiver.
