Falcons Training Camp: No Live Contact During Combined Practice

Don't expect live hitting if you head to Dalton on Monday to see the combined practice between the Falcons and the Titans. Head coach Mike Smith and his coaching staff have been cautious thus far this offseason and Monday's session will look much more like a practice than a scrimmage.

"We will work against their first group but it will not be full speed," Smith said. "(Tennessee head coach) Coach Munchak and I have talked about how we want the practice to go. It will be a practice like we would be practicing at our separate facilities; we're just going to be working against each other. There will be no tackling and we won't be taking anybody to the ground."

That isn't to downplay the importance of the practice as Smith indicated that he and his staff would be using the combined scrimmage along with the first preseason game to help make some important roster decisions.
