Coach Dan Quinn praised MLB Paul Worrilow, saying he's having a "terrific offseason."
"I challenged the guys to have the best offseason they’ve ever had," Quinn said. "He is literally having that." Worrilow has started 28 games since entering the league as a 2013 UDFA out of Delaware. But he was PFF's No. 59 inside 'backer out of 60 qualifiers last season. Worrilow is still likely to be a 2015 starter, playing the Bobby Wagner role in Quinn's defense. May 13 - 8:38 AM

Falcons ILB Paul Worrilow briefly exited Week 16 against the Saints with a left arm injury.

Worrilow smacked Mark Ingram at the line of scrimmage in the second quarter, but appeared to take the brunt of the blow. He walked off the field under his own power but was holding his left arm gingerly. He is expected to return. Worrilow entered the game with the fourth most tackles in the NFL.

Second-year ILB Paul Worrilow is embracing a leadership role in the wake of LB Sean Weatherspoon's season-ending Achilles' injury.

A 2013 UFDA out of Delaware, Worrilow was forced into early action last season because of injuries. He held his own, recording a team-leading 127 tackles, two sacks, and a pass breakup. Worrilow has a long way to go before he is a quality real-life linebacker, but he is a solid LB2 in IDP formats.

Falcons MLB Paul Worrilow recorded a tackle on 16.1 percent of his snaps in 2013.

That's 127 total tackles in 790 snaps for the undrafted 'backer in his rookie season. Worrilow was just behind Vontaze Burfict's league-leading rate of 16.4 percent. Worrilow projects as an every-down player in 2014. He remains squarely on the IDP radar as a midrange LB2.

Falcons undrafted rookie Paul Worrilow made 12 starts at middle linebacker in 2013, leading Atlanta with 127 tackles.

He added two sacks and a pass breakup. The Delaware alum became an every-down player as WLB Sean Weatherspoon and SLB Kroy Biermann were lost to injury, but Worrilow graded out poorly in both pass coverage and run defense per Pro Football Focus' game charts. Whether Worrilow is Atlanta's middle linebacker of the future remains to be seen. His long-term IDP value is shaky.

Falcons LB Paul Worrilow (knee) is questionable for Week 5 against the Jets.

Worrilow was a limited participant in practice Saturday and will be a game-time decision. With Akeem Dent (ankle) sidelined, the Falcons are counting on Worrilow to play this week.
