Atlanta Falcons vs. Jacksonville Jaguars post-game injury report: the entire defense gets banged up

A win. The Atlanta Falcons finally won a game. I almost forgot what that feels like. While it's unlikely, a playoff birth is still theoretically possible. (Three-way tie breaker rules are funny.) The victory today coupled with the news that Thomas Dimitroff's time crushing my soul as general manager is likely over - that's a pretty solid Sunday. But there were injuries, so let's break 'em down.

Ra'Shede Hageman injured his shoulder in the first half. He'd be hit with a "questionable" designation but eventually return. Vic Beasley also banged up his shoulder and left the game late. He said after the game that someone tackled him. He also said his shoulder was fine. (Shocking Beasley would say that given all we've heard about the labrum injury he's been dealing with all year.) Grady Jarrett went down just before Beasley did, leaving the game and going for X-Rays.

Like I said, while highly unlikely, a Falcons playoff birth is still theoretically possible. And now half the defense is injured. Sweet.
