Falcons Training Camp: Mike Smith Pleased With First Practice In Pads

The Atlanta Falcons participated in their first full pads practice of training camp on Sunday and Mike Smith was pleased with the overall results. The team basically eased into a lot of contact as they got re-acclimated to practicing in pads. The best news for Smith was that no one got hurt during the session.

"At the end of a play, you want to see all 22 guys on their feet," Smith said. "I thought, as you normally see on the first day of pads, there are going to be some guys that really stand out," Smith said. "And there were. You're always concerned on that first day in pads that guys start a little too fast so we tried to ease them into the practice."

Smith indicated that the team will continue to install its entire offensive and defensive schemes with practices focusing on game situations as they prepare for Friday's Friday Night Lights event at Peachtree Ridge High School
