Updates on Jamal Adams, Duane Brown

Jamal Adams is not fully practicing while he recovers from surgery, but is working with the team, according to Carroll. Regarding Duane Brown, who also was out today, Carroll said he has “a long haul” but is in “great shape.” Per Corbin Smith, his absence is not injury related.

Familiar faces and first appearances

We got to see the first appearances for some new Hawks — like Aldon Smith and Robert Nkemdiche — while also seeing a welcome return for perennial All-Pro Bobby Wagner, 2020’s second half star Carlos Dunlap, and rehabbing former first rounder Rashaad Penny.

Early reports on Shane Waldron’s offense

Chris Carson is liking what he is seeing from Waldron so far, and from the sounds of it, fans who’ve been hoping to see something different on the offensive side of the ball will be too.

All aboard the DeeJay Dallas hype train

Of course, it wouldn’t be training camp without overly investing emotional capital in preseason all-stars. DeeJay Dallas for OPOY in 2021.

Injury watch and non-participants

Ethan Pocic was a non-participant today. Carroll later clarified this, per Bob Condotta.

As John Gilbert reported earlier today, Travis Homer and D’Wayne Eskridge were placed on the PUP-list to start camp. Carroll was optimistic about the outlook for Eskridge, per Bob Condotta. Corbin Smith elaborated on the origin and severity of the injury.
