Takk McKinley’s NFL preseason debut will have to wait.
The Atlanta Falcons’ first-round pick will not play Thursday night against the Miami Dolphins, Atlanta coach Dan Quinn told the Atlanta-Journal Constitution.
The pass rusher is still recovering from right shoulder surgery in March. McKinley played through a torn labrum in his senior campaign at UCLA.
Last season, McKinley had 10 sacks and 18 tackles for a loss, which led the Falcons to select the defensive end with the No. 26 in the 2017 NFL Draft.
