Whitehead has been recovering from a hamstring injury that held him out of most of the preseason and Week 1 against the Dallas Cowboys. He will be a welcome addition to a defense that just lost CB Sean Murphy-Bunting for what appears to be the entire 2021 season. Whitehead had 53 tackles, 9.5 TFLs, two interceptions, and two sacks during the team's Super Bowl run in 2020. He will attempt to reduce the 400+ passing yards given up to the Dallas Cowboys in Week 1 against another pass-centric Falcons team led by quarterback Matt Ryan.
