The Atlanta Falcons face off against the surprising Carolina Panthers on Saturday, and they will be missing their top offensive weapon. This is yet another tough break in a season that appears to be full of tough breaks for the Falcons.
The good news is there are no other surprises, just a small handful of players the team has never been able to find a use for. Qadree Ollison has become a fifth-round COVID-replacement as he can’t make the active roster with everyone healthy. Deadrin Senat may be limited but typically grads out very well when given the chance to play. Again, he is not given the chance to play.

The only notable is seeing former Saints corner Eli Apple is still struggling with a hamstring injury, however, his loss may not be impactful. The Panthers’ secondary is bad but so is Apple.
