The Atlanta Falcons are 3-0 for the first time since 2012. Their effort and determination in the second half speak volumes, even if the Dallas Cowboys were missing Tony Romo, Dez Bryant, and a handful of defensive starters. But there were some injuries, so let's break them down.
Ricardo Allen was injured in the first half. Robenson Therezie replaced him but Allen eventually found his way back onto the field. It doesn't appear that the injury was anything serious; he basically just walked it off. If you recall, Therezie replaced Allen last week, and we initially thought it was injury-related. (He was actually temporarily benched.) But rest assured, this was an actual injury.
Jacob Tamme took a nasty hit in the first half. He exited the game and underwent the concussion protocol. Without Tamme, the Falcons' only tight end is Levine Toilolo. If Tamme is going to miss any amount of time, the Falcons may look to sight another tight end in the days ahead.
Going forward, keep an eye on both Paul Worrilow and Julio Jones. Neither man is fully healthy, with Worrilow trying to come back from a calf injury and Jones nursing an ailing hamstring. They were noticeably playing through the pain today. And while that's admirable, there's always a breaking point.
