On Sunday, the Atlanta Falcons hosted the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who they’ll face twice in three weeks. The team overall has looked solid on defense, holding Tampa to 0 points with less than two minutes in the first half. The team will possibly be without one of their cornerbacks however.
Blidi Wreh-Wilson who has three interceptions this season, left the game due to an illness. He’s listed as questionable to return due to it, so we’ll monitor the situation and see whether he returns or not.

As mentioned above, Wreh-Wilson has three interceptions this season, which is the most on the team. Playing against a touch opponent like the Buccaneers led by Tom Brady who is 6-0 all-time against the Falcons, the team needs all the help they can get. Hopefully Wreh-Wilson is able to return to action.
If he’s unable to return to the game following halftime, the Falcons will be down to AJ Terrell, Kendall Sheffield, Tyler Hall and Isiah Oliver at cornerback. Darqueze Dennard who has been one of the team’s better corners is inactive today due to injury.
