Here’s Friday’s addition of our new daily series, which collects all of the Falcons news you need to know from the previous day and puts it in one convenient place. Let’s just say that I’m happy that the preseason is over. It’s on to Philadelphia now, but before that the Falcons need to trim the roster to 53. Check out all the biggest headlines from yesterday below.


CB Blidi Wreh-Wilson injured during the Dolphins game

Blidi Wreh-Wilson left Thursday’s game with an apparent shoulder injury. We hope that he’s OK, but why was he even playing in this game? Wilson was dependable veteran depth at CB—it’d be a shame to lose him like his.

Recap the thoroughly unwatchable Dolphins game

Well, this one was hard to watch. The Falcons reserves lost quite handily, 34-7, to the Dolphins at home in the fourth preseason game. Thankfully, real football is just a week away.

Follow along with roster cuts

We should be seeing a steady stream of roster cuts for the Falcons beginning today and possibly going as long as Saturday. Check out how I did in my final 53-man roster projection, see who’s available to stash on the practice squad, and follow along with our live tracker.
