Falcons linemen team up for sack


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/8/2013) Falcons defensive lineman Peria Jerry benefited from some heavy pressure by high-profile teammate Osi Umenyiora on a play midway through the fourth quarter Week 1 at New Orleans, picking up a sack. It was his only tackle on the day. Umenyiora also had a solo tackle.

Jerry wants to maximize potential


(8/8/2011) Peria Jerry won't go so far as to say he's the missing link to an improved interior pass rush in Atlanta this year. Yet, as a former No. 24 overall draft pick, Jerry believes he hasn't come to close to maximizing his NFL potential. If Jerry does so this season, the Falcons' defense would likely solve its primary concern of training camp -- improve its pass rush or suffer another disappointing finish. "I set my goals real high and I'm going to try and achieve them," Jerry said Monday. "For the most part, I'm going to keep doing my job within the scheme, keep working and see what happens."

Jerry finally records a sack


(10/17/2010) Falcons DL Peria Jerry, the team's first-round pick in 2009, recorded the first sack of his career Week 6 at Philadelphia. It was his only tackle.

Rookie DT Jerry done for '09


(9/21/2009) The Atlanta Falcons say rookie defensive tackle Peria Jerry is out for the season after injuring his left knee in a victory over the Panthers. Jerry, the team's first-round pick out of Mississippi, went down in the fourth quarter of Sunday's 28-20 victory. Coach Mike Smith said the rookie will be placed on injured reserve. The Falcons are thin along the defensive line, so the loss of Jerry is especially damaging.

Peria suffers leg injury in Week 2


(9/20/2009) Saints DL Jerry Peria left Week 2 vs. Carolina in the fourth quarter after suffering a leg injury. He did not return.

Jerry might have rib injury


(9/14/2009) Rookie DT Peria Jerry left Sunday's game against the Dolphins with injured ribs. Coach Mike Smith had no update on Monday, though he said "I can tell you we came out of that game healthy."

Falcons rookies could start on D


(7/26/2009) The Falcons' first two draft picks, defensive tackle Peria Jerry and safety William Moore, could earn starting jobs in training camp.

Top pick DT Jerry hurts knee


(5/11/2009) 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. Drafted No. 28 overall, Jerry had arthroscopic surgery on the same knee last August to repair a torn meniscus.

Falcons grab run-stuffer DT Jerry


(4/29/2009) Peria Jerry was tabbed by the Falcons in the first round of the 2009 NFL Draft, immediately improving the talent pool along their defensive line. Perry is a not-too-big, not-too-slow defensive tackle with a good motor. He's expected to at least rotate along the line as a rookie for the Falcons.
