Falcons DE Davis pushing younger Anderson

Falcons third-year defensive end Jamal Anderson could be in jeopardy of losing his starting job. Anderson, the eighth overall pick in 2007, is being pushed by fifth-year veteran Chauncey Davis, who has been consistently better against the run and pass during training camp, a team source said.

The Falcons did not say that Anderson had been demoted. Any move with Davis could be experimental — although Davis could emerge as a starter should he outplay Anderson.

Atlanta has expected more from Anderson, who has just two career sacks in 31 starts. Davis, entering his fifth season with the Falcons, signed a four-year, $14 million contract this summer.
