The Falcons injury report is very light compared to the Saints. The Falcons did have a bit of news break on Wednesday, as it was announced that quarterback Marcus Mariota would go on season-ending injured reserve following surgery. Rookie quarterback Desmond Ridder will make his first NFL on Sunday. The lone missing player from Wednesday’s practice was was offensive lineman Chuma Edoga, who is dealing with a knee injury. With Elijah Wilkinson working as the starting left guard, Edoga will be a reserve if he does play.
As mentioned, the Saints have a massive injury report on Wednesday. There are some notable names on the report, such as kicker Will Lutz and linebacker Zach Baun, but with it being the first practice of the week, it’s merely just something to monitor right now.
