Duke Riley injured and Kemal Ishmael in at linebacker against the Patriots


NFL: Atlanta Falcons at Chicago Bears Patrick Gorski-USA TODAY Sports

The Falcons have had a rough night so far in New England, and losing Duke Riley isn’t going to make them feel any better. It looks like the linebacker is at least questionable to return.

With Riley out, Kemal Ishmael is playing linebacker, and doing a solid job thus far, albeit with some big runs on the middle he wasn’t exactly stellar on. We obviously hope Riley isn’t seriously hurt, but we’re also wallowing in self-pity, so.
