FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) -- Atlanta Falcons coach Mike Smith says
Joey Harrington will start at quarterback in the preseason game
Saturday against Indianapolis. Smith said two weeks ago that each of the team's four quarterbacks will make a start this month. Chris Redman took his turn in last week's 20-17 loss at Jacksonville, and either Matt
Ryan or D.J. Shockley will go next week against Tennessee.
After Ryan debuted late in the second quarter against
Jacksonville and finished with an impressive 105.7 passer rating,
Harrington took charge to begin the third and completed 5 of 7
passes for 64 yards. He also ran for a 1-yard touchdown. Smith says Harrington has had a good camp. He noted that the Falcons scored 10 points with Harrington at quarterback last week.
