The Falcons enter week 3 with a relatively healthy roster. Matt Bosher was already confirmed out for this week and with Matt Gono still returning from his back ailment, his status as an inactive is not surprising either.

The other names are a repeat of what we’ve seen this year. Deadrin Senat continues to ride the pine while veterans like Tyeler Davison and Allen Bailey take those snaps. It seem like he’s going to be consistently on this list until there’s an injury that opens up an opportunity for him. Additionally, the Falcons continue to go with Kenjon Barner as their third running back, with Qadree Ollison and Brian Hill remaining inactive yet again. The depth at running back is nice, but these guys will probably remain inactive unless one of Devonta Freeman, Ito Smith or Barner is injured.
For the Colts, the names not on the list may be more important. T.Y. Hilton and Marlon Mack are both active, suggesting that both guys are healthy enough to play today. That will make the job for the Falcons defense a little bit harder.
Linebacker Darius Leonard was already confirmed out and Jabaal Sheard continues to miss games since his injury in the preseason.

The Colts are definitely a bit more banged up than the Falcons, so this is a prime opportunity for Atlanta to try to steal a win on the road.
