FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) - Atlanta Falcons coach Mike Smith says
first-round draft pick Peria Jerry has a mild right knee sprain.

A day after leaving practice early with the injury, Jerry stood on the field with other defensive linemen Sunday, but didn't participate as Atlanta finished its three-day mini-camp. The former Mississippi tackle walked without a limp and wasn't wearing protection on his right knee.

Falcons are off until May 19, when the team begins voluntary offseason training activities. Jerry, who wasn't available to talk with reporters, missed the afternoon session Saturday to visit a specialist.

Drafted No. 28 overall, Jerry had arthroscopic surgery on the same knee last August to repair a torn meniscus.
