FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) Vic Beasley Jr. will be back on the field Sunday for the Atlanta Falcons after missing the last two games with a hamstring injury.
The NFL’s 2016 sack leader was injured in a Week 2 victory over Green Bay.
Beasley missed a victory at Detroit and a home loss to Buffalo. After a bye week, he returned to practice on a limited basis this week.
A first-round pick out of Clemson in 2015, Beasley led the NFL with 15.5 sacks in his second season. Before his injury, he had a pair of sacks and forced a fumble from Green Bay’s Aaron Rodgers that was returned for a touchdown.
Right tackle Ryan Schraeder also will return to the Atlanta lineup after missing two games with a concussion.
The Falcons (3-1) host the Miami Dolphins (2-2).
