Jack Crawford injury: Defensive tackle questionable to return with head/neck injury

New, comment

Please be okay, our British friend.

NFL: New Orleans Saints at Atlanta Falcons Jason Getz-USA TODAY Sports

Jack Crawford was one of the most effective defensive linemen early on in this game against the Buccaneers, so predictably he is now out of the game with an injury.

Crawford suffered an unspecified head/neck injury and is now questionable to return, per ESPN’s Vaughn McClure.

That leaves the Falcons with Deadrin Senat, Terrell McClain, and Mike Bennett as their only three full-time defensive tackles, though Brooks Reed and Takkarist McKinley can slide in there if necessary. We’ll have to hope Crawford’s okay and we’re not looking at yet another injury to an important defender, as we’ve had more than enough of those in 2018.
