The Falcons have 10 days to get Andy Levitre and Tevin Coleman healthy

The Falcons have 10 days to get Andy Levitre and Tevin Coleman healthy

The long layoff is a darn good thing. After a grueling game against the Saints, the Falcons have the closest thing they’ll get to a bye week the rest of the way, since they next play agains the Buccaneers on Monday night. That means that Andy Levitre, who missed Thursday’s game, has a week and a half to get back to full health. It also means that Tevin Coleman, who just entered the league’s concussion protocol, has more than a week to get ready to play. Neither one is guaranteed to be back, but this extended layoff could not possibly have come at a better time. The Atlanta Falcons...

Andy Levitre, C.J. Goodwin inactive tonight against the Saints

Andy Levitre, C.J. Goodwin inactive tonight against the Saints

The Saints are pretty healthy, meanwhile. The Atlanta Falcons are going to have to beat the Saints without their starting left guard. That increases the degree of difficulty, but hopefully won’t make a significant difference in the outcome. Besides Levitre, who is being replaced in the lineup by defensive tackle/guard hybrid Ben Garland, the only other player of note on the inactives list is C.J. Goodwin. Goodwin played well at times a year ago, but has largely fallen out of favor in 2017, and played two disastrous snaps on defense against the Vikings a week. Blidi Wreh-Wilson, who drew...

Ben Garland will make his first NFL start at guard against the Saints

Ben Garland will make his first NFL start at guard against the Saints

He’ll fill in for the injured Andy Levitre. Ben Garland fought Wes Schweitzer for a starting job this summer, and while he didn’t get it, he had been getting time at guard in recent weeks. Now all his hard work will pay off, as he’ll start his first NFL game at left guard for these Falcons Thursday night. Garland, who spent time as a backup center and guard in 2016 and dabbled at defensive tackle, is a versatile fan favorite who has appeared in 28 games for Atlanta since he joined the team. He’s never played poorly when asked to get onto the field, but when you have Andy Levitre,...

Andy Levitre out at least 2 to 3 weeks with partially torn bicep

Andy Levitre out at least 2 to 3 weeks with partially torn bicep

The offensive line will struggle without one of their most consistent players. Andy Levitre has quietly been a consistent and quality guard for the Falcons, even if his name mostly comes up due to penalties. He’s now going to miss multiple weeks with the Atlanta Falcons facing multiple must-win situations. #Falcons guard Andy Levitre is out against the #Saints on Thursday with a partially torn triceps, source said. However, the hope is he's back after just 2 or 3 weeks. Not season-ending.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) December 4, 2017 Levitre went out early against the Minnesota...

Falcons-Vikings post-game injury report: Dan Quinn’s squad stays healthy in close loss

Falcons-Vikings post-game injury report: Dan Quinn’s squad stays healthy in close loss

Fact: Dan Quinn’s belly button is neither and innie nor an outie The Atlanta Falcons lost in disappointing fashion today. Because the Seattle Seahawks defeated the Philadelphia Eagles tonight, the Falcons would not be in the playoffs if the season ended tonight. Lucky for us it doesn’t. And lucky for us, the Falcons managed to stay pretty healthy today. Left guard Andy Levitre suffered a triceps injury during the first offensive drive of the game. He never returned after the injury. Renaissance man Ben Garland filled in for him. Deion Jones got banged up late in the third quarter. He...

Falcons - Buccaneers snap counts: The scramble to replace Desmond Trufant

Falcons - Buccaneers snap counts: The scramble to replace Desmond Trufant

How the Falcons utilized C.J. Goodwin should be a clue for how they’ll navigate life without their top cornerback. Offense Matt Ryan: 64 Jake Matthews: 64 Andy Levitre: 64 Alex Mack: 64 Ryan Schraeder: 64 Wes Schweitzer: 54 Mohamed Sanu: 52 Julio Jones: 46 Austin Hooper: 44 Tevin Coleman: 44 Taylor Gabriel: 42 Levine Toilolo: 29 Justin Hardy: 25 Terron Ward: 20 Derrick Coleman: 14 Ben Garland: 10 Eric Saubert: 3 Andre Roberts: 1 Big note: Julio Jones was targeted on nearly a third of his snaps Sunday. He destroyed the Bucs, and it was fun. The Falcons interestingly got Ben Garland...

Julio Jones, Andy Levitre return to practice Friday and are on track to play vs. Seahawks

Julio Jones, Andy Levitre return to practice Friday and are on track to play vs. Seahawks

Good news, everyone! We know that Devonta Freeman will likely be out Sunday against the Seahawks, which is understandable considering he’s working through his second concussion this year. We also knew that both Andy Levitre and Julio Jones were limited yesterday during practice, but thankfully that is no longer the case. Freeman did not practice and remains on track to be out, with Tevin Coleman slated to be the lead back against a tough Seattle run defense. Julio and Levitre are both back at practice and on track to play on Monday night, and as far as I know, Freeman is the only player...
