The Falcons have had a rough year on the injury front. I won’t list all the players lost to injury since the season began, because it’s depressing. Ricardo Allen’s season-ending achilles injury was perhaps one of the most potentially impactful injuries this season. Lucky for us, Damontae Kazee has filled in admirably, racking up a league-leading five interceptions in Allen’s absence.
Fast forward to today’s game. Damontae Kazee injured his shoulder during the first quarter.

The injury apparently occurred during a long Ezekiel Elliot run; and it may actually be an elbow injury. Kazee tried to play through it, which just goes to show what kind of player he is. He’s officially questionable to return at the moment.
Now go find a corner and cry in it.
Update: Per Kelysey Conway, Kazee was back in the locker room but came running back to the sideline a few moments ago. He’s now back on the field.
