3rd exhibition important for Falcons, Wilson

AP: D.J. Shockley, a third-year backup with no game experience, threw two interceptions and nearly had another pair in last week’s 20-13 exhibition victory in St. Louis. Fourth-string quarterback John Parker Wilson, an undrafted rookie from Alabama, led other reserves on an 11-play drive for a field goal on Atlanta’s final possession. Coach Mike Smith and offensive coordinator Mike Mularkey are planning for Ryan and most of the other starters to play the first half against San Diego. NFL teams routinely prepare regular-season equivalent game plans for the third exhibition, so the staff should have a better idea where Redman, Shockley and Wilson stand after Saturday.
