The saying is that “All good things come in threes”. If that’s true, then both the Saints and Falcons are doing well as they post just three and six injured players, respectively, this week.
Atlanta may have a lot of players out on the IR, but for much of the regular season, the players who were active remained relatively healthy. Not so much this time.
A total of 13 players are listed this week. Five for the Falcons and eight for the Cardinals.
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.
