Atlanta’s 3rd String Receivers Might See Plenty Of Action Against Rams

Normally Falcons wide receivers Harry Douglas and Drew Davis don’t get a lot of recognition because they back up Julio Jones and Roddy White. With both starting wide receivers Jones and White listed as questionable, Douglas and Davis might have to work overtime against St. Louis.


Falcons’ Injury List Short, but Two Big Names Listed as Questionable

What do you do when two members of your defensive line may not play in the one game that needs to be won to head to the Super Bowl?

Falcons Defense Will be Shallow Against Bucs

Specifically, the secondary of Atlanta will be the most shallow. With two starting secondary players, this may be the game where Atlanta seed how deep their defense truly is.

Falcons Make Use of “Mini-Bye Week”, Key Players Back for Carolina

While whoever came up with the famous “Time heals all wounds” quote probably wasn’t thinking about the Atlanta Falcons. Still, that doesn’t mean the saying doesn’t apply. With a double-digit number of players listed on the last several injury reports, the ten days off meant fewer than five would be listed this week.

Falcons And Saints Are Both Beat-Up For Round 2

With less than four days after their win against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the Atlanta Falcons must suit up and face another divisional foe. The question remains if the shortened work week will mean more injuries for either team.

Depth of Falcons May Be Deciding Factor in Game

Depth of a sports team is always important. You never know which star players are going to have to come out of the game. For the Falcons, there’s a chance they may be without a number of their key guys against Tampa Bay this week.



Atlanta’s Secondary May Find Out Just How Deep They Really Are

One of the rare times in this season that the Atlanta Falcons have more players in their injury report than their opponents. This time, twelve Falcons are on the report while the Saints have just five.



If Clabo’s Injury Keeps Him Out, Denver’s Defense Could Tee Off On Ryan

Tackle Tyson Clabo is listed as questionable, and would be a key matchup against Broncos rookie defensive end Derek Wolfe as well as go against linebacker Von Miller if he blitzes Matt Ryan. Although not injured, Atlanta’s left tackle Sam Baker would matchup against Broncos defensive end Elvis Dumervil. Coach Mike Smith knows that slowing down Miller and Dumervil will be critical for an Atlanta victory. Miller is the reigning NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year and Dumervil led the NFL in sacks several years ago. If Clabo sits, it could expose Ryan.


Strong Signs: Both Jason Snelling Christopher Owens Listed As Probable For Falcons

Atlanta is looking in solid shape for the season opener, and got some positive news in key starters on both offense and defense planning to suit up against the Chiefs. Kansas City didn’t fare as well in the injury department, and several defensive question marks could open up possibilities for the Falcons’ offensive attack.
