Team inactives are back, which means exactly one thing: Football is only 90 minutes away. Fans have been through one long offseason, and ultimately every move, discussion, and controversy melts away because the Falcons are back.
Since the Falcons are pretty healthy, with the exception of tackle Matt Gono, we get to see who makes up the bottom of the roster, and what young players have pushed for playing time.

It seems like the coaching staff has been trying to send a message to Deadrin Senat because his play does not justify keeping him inactive. It is a little surprising to see Jamon Brown inactive instead of Wes Schweitzer. Two running backs inactive must either mean it is a matchup based decision or that the Falcons have too many running backs.
As for the Vikings, we don’t really care who makes up the bottom of their roster. We are really looking for major players sitting out. There was a chance a hamstring injury was going to keep out Stefon Diggs, but it looked unlikely after he was limited in the last two practices this week.

Nothing surprising from Minnesota.
