FLOWERY BRANCH, GA - Linebacker Curtis Lofton knows the Atlanta Falcons' poor outing in Pittsburgh shows gaps in their defense.
But the defensive captain cautions not to read too much into a preseason game.
Lofton says the Falcons "will be OK" even though the season opener at Chicago is 12 days away.
Atlanta will use the exhibition finale Thursday against Baltimore to fine-tune a pass rush that was gouged last week.
Two defensive starters, cornerback Dunta Robinson and nose tackle Corey Peters, are injured and will not play against the Ravens.
The Falcons are trying to sign safety James Sanders, who was released by New England, to shore up a secondary that lacks depth at all four positions. Atlanta coach Mike Smith wants to see the problems fixed regardless of personnel.
