            Atlanta Falcons wide receiver, Harry Douglas, is out for the rest of the season. Douglas hurt his knee during Wednesday afternoon’s practice during a one-on-one drill. Receivers had to fight through a bump from the cornerback before catching a pass from quarterback Matt Ryan.

            Douglas was filling in the number 2 spot because Michael Jenkins was filling in the number 1 slot for Roddy White. White has not been to training camp yet due to a holdout situation.

            Last year was Douglas’s rookie season. Douglas caught 23 passes for a total of 329 yards. He also ran for 69 yards with 12 carries. Douglas also took over punt returning responsibilities. He returned a punt back for a touchdown. It was also Atlanta’s first punt return for a touchdown since 2004.
