Early in the second half last week, Chris Canty got a piece of Matt Ryan's pass, tipping it straight up in the air. It was a makeable interception for a number of blue jerseys circling back to the ball that included Justin Tuck, Aaron Ross and Jason Pierre-Paul, who was the closest.
As the ball hit the turf incomplete, Pierre-Paul and Ross got back up slowly. Pierre-Paul would return, but Ross would not due to a concussion.
The cornerback returned to practice on Wednesday on a limited basis but said he plans on playing on Sunday.
"I felt good after the game," Ross said. "Once I got off the ground, I felt a lot better. Of course, the league has to take precautions and doctors made the right decision by keeping me out. I took the test, I felt fine, I passed it. I feel good."
As for the interception…
"Hey, we all cost each other one," Ross said.
All he knew was that he was hit by a larger force.
"I think it was JPP," said Ross, with the other option being Tuck. "It was one of them, somebody. Somebody bigger than me."
Ross also said he was able to watch the rest of the game after the tests. He looked on as Prince Amukamara took over, limiting Julio Jones to three more catches in the game, none of which were longer than six yards.
"He's coming along," Ross said. "He's getting better each week, each practice. He's starting to learn the defense, picking up on the scheme. He's getting better each week."
