Atlanta Falcons-San Francisco 49ers post-game injury report: De'Vondre Campbell concussed in week 15 drubbing

Fact: De'Vondre Campbell's heart only beats 3 times a week

Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports

The Atlanta Falcons kicked some serious butt today, locking in a winning season and continuing their post-bye week momentum. (I'm not counting the botched 2 point conversion from hell. I'm not!) It was a fun game to watch, but alas, there were injuries. Let's break them down.

Taylor Gabriel scored his 7th touchdown of the season and then promptly injured his shoulder, earning a "questionable to return" designation. He did in fact return to the game (after going back to the locker room) and had a couple nice plays, so hopefully it's nothing to get worked up about.

De'Vondre Campbell suffered a concussion, which is unfortunate, given the prominent role he's assumed this season. Campbell was replaced by his substantially slower back up, Paul Worrilow. To Worrilow's credit, he played pretty well. But then again, it was the 49ers.

Keanu Neal somehow dislocated his ring finger. Check this out. Apparently the trainer just popped it back into place and he returned the next series. Football, y'all. Football.

Austin Hooper was injured late in the game well after the Falcons solidified the victory. He was seen face down on the turf, grimacing. He made it to the sideline but then they carted him to the locker room. Apparently he wasn't on crutches after the game but per Vaughn McClure, he was rocking a hefty knee brace. If Hooper can't go, then suddenly Levine Toilolo's worst nightmare just came true: he's now our starting tight end. The Falcons still have Josh Perkins at their disposal and T.J Tialavea is percolating on the practice squad. That said, these injuries are starting to pile up.
