Sunday Afternoon Quick Hits For The Falcons: John Parker Wilson Concussed

New, comments

There's a lot of things going on at practice today, so rather than post a ton of FanShots to get caught up, I thought I'd collect everything in a post.

Here's the rundown:

  • Falcons signed Carlton Powell. A very bright guy, Powell is also a big ol' dude and could be a system fit for the Falcons. His signing became much bigger news when it was revealed that Corey Peters was hauled off the field with a possible knee injury. Trey Lewis and Vance Walker are also reportedly banged up—even though Lewis practiced Sunday—so guys like Powell and Kiante Tripp get a real shot at proving themselves in the days ahead.
  • Kroy Biermann and Tyson Clabo were booted off the field for fighting. Nothing like a brawl between huge, angry dudes with odd names to mark your Sunday practice.
  • Mike Johnson is back in practice. He'll try to gain ground on Garrett Reynolds, who I thought played pretty well on Friday. Johnson's talented enough to do it even if it's not particularly likely, so keep a close eye on this ongoing battle.
  • John Parker Wilson has a concussion. That will almost certainly keep him out versus the Jaguars. Look for Chris Redman and Adam Froman to get plenty of snaps. This is probably Froman's best and maybe only shot to make his case for the third quarterback job. I hope JPW's back on his feet soon.
  • Ray Edwards is almost back. Look for him to get some snaps against the Jaguars. 

I'll make every effort to update you on big doings, especially if we get news on how Peters is doing. For now, talk Falcons and thank the fine collection of reporters and team staff above who gave us these updates.
