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.
The Carolina Panthers were thrilled to get the first-round bye in the NFL playoffs because it meant one less game between them and the Super Bowl. They were also very grateful for it because it allowed a number of players to fully heal up.
The New Orleans Saints have lost a few players to injured reserve over the course of the season, but right now, they’re looking extremely healthy for those still on the active roster. With all 53 players at practice and some new methods implemented by coach Sean Payton, the Saints are as ready as they’ll ever be.
Andrew Luck showed last week that he takes advantage of just about every single offensive weapon that he has at his disposal, and gets the most out of his players. If one of those key components is missing, the whole machine could come to a screeching halt.
