FLOWERY BRANCH — Offensive tackle Jake Matthews, safety William Moore and linebacker Brooks Reed have returned from injuries and were still limited in practice Tuesday for the Atlanta Falcons.

Rookie defensive end Vic Beasley, the NFL’s eighth overall draft pick, was limited with a sore shoulder. Rookie cornerback Jalen Collins, a second-round pick, went through some drills, but is still not at full speed following foot surgery a couple of months ago.

The Falcons wrap up offseason conditioning drills this week. A mandatory three-day minicamp begins next Tuesday.

Matthews, the No. 6 overall draft pick of 2014, underwent foot surgery in January. Moore, who’s started 61 of 65 games, had major shoulder surgery. Reed, signed to a $22 million contract in free agency three months ago, had a groin injury.
