As the season gets closer to its conclusion, those little aches and pains start turning into legit injuries. Both the Falcons and Browns are dealing with that as both teams have at least nine players listed and two players each considered “out” this week.
With Atlanta posting just six players and Carolina posting 13 on this week’s injury report, the Falcons at least have this part of the game won.
As bad as the season has been for Atlanta, it’s been worse for the Bucs. The injury report seems to concur.
Anytime a football team has fewer injured players, it usually means the odds of winning are slightly more in their favor. Here’s hoping that trend continues for Atlanta’s Week 6 game against the Bears.
The injury bug seems to have come back with a vengeance for the Falcons. This is the first time this season Atlanta has had more than five players listed on a weekly injury report.
Yet again, you can count Atlanta’s injured players on just one hand.
So far Atlanta has done a great job of keeping their players healthy as just four Falcons are listed as injured, while Tampa has 11.
Thirteen Bengals are listed this week as the Dirty Birds prepare to go 2-0 to start off the season.
Good news, Falcons fans! If you drafted any of the Dirty Birds for your fantasy team this season, don’t hesitate to start them, because they all appear to be ready for the first game of the season against their NFC South rival New Orleans Saints.
Just like in the regular season Percy Harvin’s return to the field in the postseason was short lived as Harvin will not be playing against San Francisco this weekend.
