Falcons Won't Update Injury Report Until Thursday

New, comments

Big surprise, isn't it?

US PRESSWIRE

The Falcons saw three starters go down again against the Patriots, with Sam Baker, Paul Worrilow and Akeem Dent all ending up on the sidelines during the course of the game. That's par for the course in a laughably unlucky 2013, but we'll have to wait a few days to find out just how serious those injuries are.

Mike Smith said yesterday that the Falcons won't be announcing any injury updates until Thursday. That's not a surprise, given the way this team operates, but it means we're going to have to hold our breath to see if the team's ostensible starting left tackle and two of their remaining healthy linebackers will return for Monday Night Football.

Those of you clamoring for Dent to be benched may find the team without him, but if they're rolling out Joplo Bartu, Omar Gaither and Jamar Chaney, you may wish you hadn't gotten your wish.

Thoughts on the injuries?
