Injuries are crawling their way through the Falcons roster, unfortunately. Their latest victim was an undrafted free agent.
Robbie Frey was a promising back who absolutely dominated the competition at tiny Kutztown, rushing for over 1,000 yards on just 189 carries. The Falcons have quality depth at the position, but at 6 feet and over 200 pounds with good speed, Frey looked like an intriguing practice squad candidate.
Having been waived/injured now, there's no chance Frey will catch on and provide any value this year. With Michael Turner possibly gone after this season and the team's penchant for keeping talented UDFAs around, though, it's not impossible to think that value may be there down the line.
In the meantime, take a second to wish Frey well. It always sucks to lose your season to injury.
We may not have seen the last of Frey for these Falcons, is all I'm saying. How do you think the running back depth chart will shake out?
