Falcons vs. Panthers inactives: Deadrin Senat and Matt Gono will never play

No surprises in the inactives but there are definitely some disappointments.

NFL: Atlanta Falcons at Carolina Panthers Jeremy Brevard-USA TODAY Sports

The Falcons released their inactives ahead of Sunday’s NFC matchup with the Carolina Panthers. There are a lot of familiar names.

RB Devonta Freeman, TE Austin Hooper, DT Deadrin Senat, DE John Cominsky, OT Matt Gono, S Kemal Ishmael, and WR Brandon Powell were ruled out.

Freeman, Hooper, and Cominsky are dealing with injuries. Ishmael is an interesting inactive. He has gotten plenty of snaps with Keanu Neal out but has not been a difference maker. Gono, who has frequently been talked up by the coaching staff, is not giving him a chance to play. Career underachiever Ty Sambrialo will soak up any snaps with an extra tackle before he is inevitably cut in the offseason. Senat will stick on the bench, and seems to not be any closer to playing.

CB Ross Cockrell, OT Dennis Daley, RB Mike Davis, LB Jordan Kunaszyk, DT Kyle Love, WR Brandon Zylstra, and EDGE Christian Miller were ruled out for the Carolina Panthers. The Panthers were not dealing with any major injuries so there are no surprises.
