It’s already Thursday as we continue to inch closer to Sunday’s game against the Denver Broncos. We already know that defensive end Takk McKinley has been ruled out for Sunday, and we continue to monitor other players who are dealing with injuries.
On Thursday, the Falcons released their official practice report giving us insight into the current health of the team.
- CB Kendall Sheffield (concussion)
- TE Jaeden Graham (knee)
- WR Russell Gage (shoulder, knee)
- WR Calvin Ridley (foot)
- DE Takk McKinley (groin) OUT
- DE Dante Fowler Jr. (hamstring)
- CB Jordan Miller (oblique)
- T Kaleb McGary (rest)
- C Alex Mack (rest)
The main differences between Wednesday and Thursday’s practice reports is that Jordan Miller randomly popped up on the report with a oblique injury while Kaleb McGary and Alex Mack had a rest day. Miller’s injury is something to monitor, but also keep in mind that following his suspension at the beginning of the season, he has been inactive every week since he has returned except for the Monday Night Football game against the Green Bay Packers. Additionally, Mack and McGary’s rest days have been fairly typical every week, so nothing to be concerned about.
Because of the timezone difference, we currently don’t have the Broncos’ practice report but on Wednesday the team was without cornerback A.J. Bouye (concussion) and running back Phillip Lindsay (foot). Stay tuned for the very important Friday report as it’ll provide us with any injury designations leading up to Sunday’s game.
