Terrell’s return could mean Sheffield and Terrell line up outside against the Panthers, unless the Falcons decide to let Sheffield play the nickel role while leaving Terrell and Oliver outside. Blidi Wreh-Wilson has been playing the nickel role since Darqueze Dennard was placed on injured reserve with a hamstring injury.
