A lot of what I do is simply monitoring injuries. It’s very depressing. Anyway, here is what is going on with each team. Keep in mind I’m only tracking players that I think are impactful.
-TE Jermaine Gresham was inactive in week 1 and week 2 (Achilles).
-S Keanu Neal tore his ACL in the opener. This is a tough loss for the Falcons. 2017 5th round pick Damontae Kazee will take his starting spot.
-LB Deion Jones (foot) was placed on IR. This is another huge loss for the Falcons.
-RB Devonta Freeman (knee) is not practicing Wednesday. He is INACTIVE for week 2.
-RB Kenneth Dixon has been placed on IR after injuring his knee week 1.
-TE Hayden Hurst was inactive week 1 and week 2(foot).
-CB Jimmy Smith is still suspended.
-Does it really even matter?
-Fine, slot CB Taron Johnson suffered a shoulder injury in week 1 and did not practice Wednesday (9/12). He was inactive week 2.
-DE Shaq Lawson pulled his hamstring in week 1 and did not practice Wednesday or Thursday. He was inactive week 2.
-RB Shady McCoy hurt his ribs in the week 2 game against the Chargers. On Sunday night he thought it was a fracture, but Monday xrays reveled it was not. It sounds like he’s 50/50 for week 3.
-TE Greg Olsen re-injured his foot last game. He’s considered “month to month.”
-LB Luke Keuchly hyper-extended his knee last game, but says he’s “fine.” He practiced in full on Wednesday and Thursday, so should be good to go.
-LB Thomas Davis is still suspended.
-OT Daryl Williams (knee) has been placed on IR.
– OG Trai Turner has a concussion and has not been practicing. He was inactive week 2.
