The Atlanta Falcons lost their week 3 preseason game against the Miami Dolphins tonight. The potential for injuries scared me to no end in the lead up to the game. With the rainfall before kickoff, it just seemed a bit ominous, especially with the news of Julio Jones' new contract breaking late in the day. But as luck would have it, Julio took a seat on the bench and the Falcons emerged from their loss relatively unscathed.
There were two injuries that affect offensive depth. First, Tyler Polumbus hobbled off the field with what is apparently a knee injury. He was deemed questionable to return. Second, Tony Moeaki had an ankle injury, also deemed questionable to return.
With the coaching staff apparently enamored with Levine Toilolo, the Moeaki injury is easier to stomach. The Polumbus injury, however, is a cause for concern. If it's serious, expect the Falcons to take a hard look at the free agent pool this week, especially with cuts looming. Heck, they might even give Jake Long another look.
