Falcons vs. Saints post-game injury update: who needs a secondary anyway?

Fact: Paul Worrilow is leading the NFL in eye black used

Derick E. Hingle-USA TODAY Sports

The Atlanta Falcons won a must-win contest against the hated New Orleans Saints today. It feels good, darn good. That said, there were injuries. So let's break those down.

Paul Worrilow took a hard hit in the first half, sitting out until halftime. He'd return in the second half, playing through what was apparently diagnosed as a stinger. For what it's worth, he played like an absolute beast in the second half, so he must've been feeling alright.

Much to the chagrin of the commentating crew, Steven Jackson came up lame with an apparent quad injury in the first half. Jackson has looked like his old self of late, so it'd be a real shame if this is anything serious. It didn't look like the training staff was overly concerned about it, and Jackson just sort of sat by himself on the bench after leaving the game. If I had to guess, they're being careful.

William Moore went down in the second half. He was clutching his shoulder and immediately left the game, heading to the locker room. It's been an injury-riddled year for Moore, and it's no fun watching him struggle to stay healthy. Josh Wilson and Dwight Lowery also went down late in the second half. The secondary is all-of-a-sudden looking very thin, so let's hope for some good news this week.
