ATLANTA – Atlanta Falcons cornerback A.J. Terrell was set to start Sunday against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers after being cleared from the concussion protocol.

Terrell was injured last week in a 13-8 victory over the New York Jets. After being limited in practice for two days, he was able to fully take part on Friday.
