Atlanta Falcons first-round draft pick Takkarist McKinley is expected to miss the open of training camp, according to Dan Pompei of Bleacher Report.

He underwent shoulder surgery in March for a torn labrum and continues to recover. He was initially expected to be full-go in time for training camp.

Falcons training camp opens July 26 for both rookies and veterans.

McKinley, a defensive end, was selected 26th overall in this year’s draft.
