The Falcons might be dropping a 40 burger on the Panthers, but they’re also dropping like flies in the second half. Desmond Trufant, Calvin Ridley, and Wes Schweitzer all left the game and would not return, and now cornerback Isaiah Oliver is down on the turf.

Oliver entered the medical tent, and it would be surprising if he returns considering the current scoreline and the time left on the clock.

With both Desmond Trufant and Isaiah Oliver injured, the Falcons are running thin at secondary. Blidi Wreh-Wilson replaced Trufant, and rookie Jordan Miller would come into the game to spell Oliver.

We will provide an update on Isaiah Oliver’s status and the extent of his injury once we receive an official word.
