It’s a new month and a new week as the Atlanta Falcons prepare to face their divisional rival, the New Orleans Saints. The Falcons are now 3-4 after their most recent loss against the Carolina Panthers, but on the bright side, the team is relatively healthy minus a few players.
You can expect to see the injury reports here every Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, except for when the Falcons play on Thursday night.
- WR Russell Gage (groin)
- DL Jonathan Bullard (concussion)
- WR Calvin Ridley (personal)
- CB Marshon Lattimore (hand)
- OT Terron Armstead (groin)
- DE Payton Turner (calf)
- QB Taysom Hill (concussion)
- RB Dwayne Washington (neck)
- RB Ty Montgomery (hamstring)
- DE Carl Granderson (shoulder)
- S Malcom Jenkins (knee)
- QB Jameis Winston (knee)
With receiver Calvin Ridley missing further time due to personal reasons, the Falcons are thin at receiver. Russell Gage, who will have to play a larger role in Ridley’s absence, was limited on Wednesday due to a groin injury. This would help explain why Gage had no targets in Sunday’s loss against the Panthers. Missing Wednesday’s practice altogether was defensive lineman Jonathan Bullard who is in the league’s concussion protocol, putting his status for the Saints game in question.
The Saints have a plethora of players listed on their injury report for Wednesday. Jameis Winston is listed on the injury report, but he is indeed done for the season with a knee injury but has yet to be placed on injured reserve. Taysom Hill is expected to take over QB1 duties after he returns from a concussion. Not listed on the report is Michael Thomas, who will also miss the rest of the 2021 season.
It’s early in the week yet, so we will continue to monitor the injuries over the next few days.
