Wednesday is here and we are on to a new week. The 4-4 Atlanta Falcons are set to host the Minnesota Vikings, in a battle of two teams who aren’t playing that great, but have a realistic chance to win their division. After weeks of the Falcons being injury-free, the injury bug has shown his ugly face at Flowery Branch.

You can expect to see the injury reports here every Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.

As mentioned above, the Falcons are pretty banged up to start the week. The big thing to keep your eye on is wide receiver Drake London, who has played very well recently but is now sidelined with a groin injury. We’ll know more as the week progresses. Also, not showing up on the report, but defensive lineman LaCale London was placed on injured reserve.

The big news for Minnesota this week was the unfortunate season-ending injury for quarterback Kirk Cousins. He obviously will not play against the Falcons, but the team does have a few other injuries to keep an eye on. Two of their receivers, including a familiar face in Brandon Powell, were limited on Wednesday due to their respective injuries.
