Offensive lineman Josh Andrews lands on COVID list

The hits keep coming for the Atlanta Falcons. Left guard Josh Andrews recently returned from a broken hand, and he’s now landed on the reserve/COVID-19 list.

Injury report

No real change on Atlanta’s injury front. WR/RB/KR/Wedding Singer Cordarrelle Patterson was limited in yesterday’s practice due to the ankle knock he picked up against Dallas. If he can’t go, that’s clearly a huge blow to the Falcons’ offense.

Atlanta’s offense vs. New England’s defense
