The good news is that Ryan Schraeder appears to be fine after leaving the field yesterday, having suffered a cleating and a cut that couldn’t have been a lot of fun but does not appear to be minor. The less inspiring news is that Jack Crawford cannot practice today after suffering a strained groin, though it does not appear to be a serious injury.

With Damontae Kazee also apparently also not suffering a serious injury yesterday, the Falcons went 3 for 3 in the scary but ultimately not terrifying camp ailment department, which is a ratio I can more than live with. Too many teams have already lost good players to non-contact injuries, including the Miami Dolphins, who will be without Ryan Tannehill for the year.

Let’s hope the Falcons can keep going like that, and let’s hope Crawford and Kazee are ready to play against the Dolphins on Thursday. Crawford will be a key reserve and Kazee wants to prove he deserves a lot of playing time in the season ahead, so it’ll be vital for both to get on the field early and often. As always, though, health comes first.
