FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. Adam Butler Jersey . -- The Atlanta Falcons are likely to lose tight end Jacob Tamme to season-ending shoulder surgery, while the outlook for Pro Bowl cornerback Desmond Trufant and running back Tevin Coleman appears optimistic as they recover from their respective injuries.Tamme is scheduled to get a second opinion Wednesday on the right shoulder he injured Oct. 30 against Green Bay. Its highly likely Tamme will then have surgery Thursday.Were bummed for him, Falcons coach Dan Quinn said. Its a significant one. Hes been trying like hell to rehab and just not coming through like he wanted.Quinn said that is not the case with Trufant, who suffered a shoulder/pectoral injury in a 43-28 win Nov. 3 at Tampa Bay. This weeks bye gives Trufant extra time to recover before the Falcons play the Arizona Cardinals?on?Nov. 27.Hes definitely dealing with it, Quinn said of Trufant. Were hopeful that he can practice some next week. And if he can, whether its Arizona or whoever we play after Arizona, weve got to find out. Hes doing good now. Hes running and doing everything. So now we just have to see where hes at.Quinn insisted that Trufant will return at some point and the injury is not serious enough to be season-ending, even with the pectoral element factored in.You totally can [play with the injury], Quinn said. It depends on the severity of what he has and how deep. ... If it was something really significant, then he would have had the procedures done.Im trying to be mindful of him knowing that hes wanting to play. Hes going to practice hopefully some the Arizona week. And then well determine, Does he look good enough to play, or do we wait another week? And then well kind of go from there.Meanwhile, Quinn said he expects Coleman to be a full participant in practice after the bye coming off a hamstring strain. Coleman has missed the past three games because of the injury.Punter Matt Bosher, who exited Sundays 25-14 loss at Philadelphia with a hamstring strain, could be back for the Falcons next game. The Falcons have no immediate plans to sign a punter. Kicker Matt Bryant handled the punting after Bosher left the Eagles game, though wide receiver Mohamed Sanu volunteered to punt.The loss of Tamme, who caught 22 passes for 2010 yards and three touchdowns through eight games, will mean an increased role for rookie Austin Hooper at tight end with a rotation that also will include Levine Toilolo and rookie Joshua Perkins.Until Trufant returns, Jalen Collins will run with the starters at cornerback. Quinn said Collins played solid against the Eagles in place of Trufant. Brandin Cooks Jersey . Despite dominating possession, Schalke needed an own goal from Nicolas Hoefler for the breakthrough a minute before the interval. The Freiburg midfielder misjudged Jefferson Farfans corner and bundled the ball into his own net. Custom New England Patriots Jerseys . -- Jacksonville wide receiver Cecil Shorts will likely be a game-time decision whether hell play Sunday in the Jaguars home game against the San Diego Chargers. http:///...-edelman-jersey.html .H. -- Matt Kenseth made it 2 for 2 in the Chase, holding off teammate Kyle Busch to win Sunday at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. (STATS) -- To say sports has taught Tyler Swafford teamwork, sportsmanship and drive is an understatement. Especially when his lifes work may be to stand up for the most vulnerable and foster freedom and democracy in places where they are fragile.The Eastern Kentucky University quarterback, who aspires to be a human rights attorney, was announced Tuesday as the 2016 recipient of the STATS FCS Doris Robinson Scholar-Athlete Award. Named after the wife of legendary Grambling State coach Eddie Robinson, the award is presented to an FCS student-athlete who excels not only in the classroom, but in the community and beyond.Swafford will be honored at the STATS FCS Awards Banquet and Presentation Jan. 6 in Frisco, Texas -- on the eve of the national championship game.The 21-year-old rose through a crowded depth chart at Eastern Kentucky to become the Colonels starter during this past season. A redshirt sophomore athletically, the 4.0 honors scholar is on pace to graduate after the spring semester in only three years at the Ohio Valley Conference university.Although Swafford could return as the starting quarterback next fall, he will forsake the opportunity, and likely his playing career at EKU, for his calling in life. He will attend University College Dublin as one of 12 winners in the United States of the prestigious George J. Mitchell Scholarship sponsored by the U.S.-Ireland Alliance.Your education is what you make of it, your football career is what you make of it, Swafford said. But certainly you benefit from people who invest in you and who care about you, and I certainly have at Eastern -- crediting coaches, instructors and administrators.Swafford is majoring in globalization and international affairs with a minor in business. The interdisciplinary studies have combined political science, economics, history and religion and helped shape his desire for humanitarian service. His masters study in Ireland will be geopolitics and global economy.Since I started at EKU, Ive developed a passion for human rights and international security issues, said the resident of Franklin, Tennessee. His parents, Tony and Tara, are attorneys.I think the United States has an indispensable role in the world to lead, to fight for human rights, civil liberties and freedom. Obviously, we shouldnt get in every quagmire around the world that is out there and look for conflict; I know were still war-weary in this country. But I think being the United States, we have a moral high-ground and a special ressponsibility in the world to provide freedom and widespread opportunity and human rights protection, when they are so under assault today. Cameron Fleming Jersey. Swafford was part of his football teams mission trip to Haiti in May 2015, where they worked at an orphanage to build a fish and plant farm system that would become self-sustainable. He also was part of EKUs honors delegation to the Salzburg Global Citizenship Seminar in Austria last May, an experience that included a profound trip to the Dachau concentration camp. He completed an independent research project on the evolution of human rights law, from the Nuremberg Trials through the present-day International Criminal Court.At the seminar, professors challenged the students to become more involved in their local communities. After returning from the trip, Swafford worked with Kentucky Refugee Ministries to help resettle a Syrian family of six to Lexington.During semester break in January, Swafford will study American diplomacy overseas and be part of a select group of students visiting U.S. embassies in Paris and Rabat, Morocco, and the European Commission in Brussels, Belgium.I knew from the moment I met Tyler as a freshman that he was a young man marked for great things, EKU president Michael Benson said, given his intellect, his work ethic, and his ability to relate to others. I also saw in Tyler someone who would thrive in an international studies environment, given his own perspective and world-view.Swafford was chosen as the Doris Robinson Award recipient from a list of finalists comprising all 13 FCS conferences. The other finalists: Dayton linebacker Christopher Beaschler (Pioneer Football League), New Hampshire cornerback Casey DeAndrade (CAA Football), Saint Francis place-kicker Lance Geesey (Northeast Conference), Liberty offensive lineman Lucas Holder (Big South Conference), Alcorn State linebacker Michael Hurns (Southwestern Athletic Conference), North Dakota linebacker Brian Labat (Big Sky Conference), Wofford place-kicker David Marvin (Southern Conference), Delaware State offensive lineman Ernest Mengoni (Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference), Northern Iowa defensive end Karter Schult (Missouri Valley Football Conference), Stephen F.
