Asante Samuel Injury: Cornerback Inactive Against Patriots

US PRESSWIRE

The Falcons can't catch a break in terms of injury.

Asante Samuel is out for this game. That leg injury just won't go away, apparently.

That leaves the Falcons facing up against a Patriots passing offense minus Danny Amendola and Rob Gronkowski. Thankfully, Desmond Trufant and Robert Alford have played well all season long. Unfortunately, Robert McClain has not. This is still a matchup the Falcons should be able to win.

At this point, I'd like to see Samuel sitting out until he's completely healthy. They're gaining nothing by letting him play a handful of snaps each week before leaving again.

It's nearly gametime!
