Falcons rookie cornerback Desmond Trufant covers Bengals wide receiver Ryan Whalen during the first quarter of their NFL exhibition game on Aug, 8, 2013, in Atlanta.
Trufant said he was fine with matching up one-on-one with Beckham Jr. or playing sides.
Falcons coach Dan Quinn said earlier in the week that the game plan would likely have a mix of man and zone coverages for Beckham. Look for free safety Ricardo Allen to also be a part of that plan.
Falcons CB Desmond Trufant vs. Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr.: Trufant had a pass breakup on one of the few passes Eagles quarterback Sam Bradford threw in his direction. He’ll line up on the left side, but will have some time 1-on-1 with Beckham, who caught five passes for 44 yards in the loss to Dallas. Beckham, who was the 12th player taken in the 2014 draft out of LSU, had 91 catches for 1,305 yards and 12 touchdowns in 12 games as a rookie last season.
