Falcons looking to settle their offensive line

By GEORGE HENRY

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) - Falcons offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter says he's not too concerned about the recent struggles of his offensive line.

Koetter believes Atlanta, which visits Baltimore for a preseason game on Thursday, still has enough time to settle on a starting right tackle and decide who fills backup jobs before the season opener Sept. 8 at New Orleans.

Those moves will help determine if quarterback Matt Ryan and running back Steven Jackson have the time and space needed to push the offense.

Koetter added that when the Falcons "get everybody firing on the same cylinders, we're going to be tough to beat."

Atlanta's offensive line is still in flux with the right tackle job still an open competition and Peter Konz a first-year starting center.
