Cardinals vs. Falcons inactives: Falcons running low on defensive tackles

New, comments

Terrell McClain is OUT today with a toe injury.

NFL: Arizona Cardinals at Atlanta Falcons Jason Getz-USA TODAY Sports

The Falcons are dealing with a few injuries, like Terrell McClain’s toe, but otherwise inactives are simply the bottom of the roster. There’s only so much to take away from here.

Italian Ice is again a healthy scratch, an indication that the Falcons are definitely keeping him into 2019. It is surprising to see Justin Zimmer inactive with McClain out. McClain has been the definition of “just a guy” this season. We should finally see Deadrin Senat get more snaps. The Falcons are pushing a fullback by committee, likely with running back Brian Hill and tight end Logan Paulsen in at that slot.

The Cardinals have a lot of players on injured reserve, and now their inactives are a bunch of nobodies. There’s not much important here.
