The NFL has kept us waiting a little longer to watch the Falcons this week, scheduling their clash against Tom Brady and the defending champion Buccaneers in the late afternoon 4 p.m. ET time slot, instead of the customary 1 p.m.
With it being less than 90 minutes until kickoff, both teams have announced their inactives:
The big name that sticks out for the Birds is defensive lineman John Cominsky, who was thought of as a solid rotational piece coming into the season. He played minimal snaps in Week 1 and will not be in uniform this week.
Wayne Gallman, who was signed a few days before the start of the regular season, will once again not be active, meaning that the Falcons will roll with two running backs on their depth chart once again.
The inactives for the Bucs are also above. There don’t seem to be any big surprises on their end.
