Falcons snap counts: Changes, however small, in a fifth straight loss

Falcons snap counts: Changes, however small, in a fifth straight loss

Photo by Kevin Abele/Icon Sportswire via The defensive personnel got a little bit of a shakeup for once. Your Falcons snap counts tell a somewhat interesting story this week, for a change. Skip to the defense if you’re interested in seeing what changes the Falcons made. Offense Jake Matthews: 55 Jamon Brown: 55 Kaleb McGary: 55 Alex Mack: 54 Austin Hooper: 50 Mohamed Sanu: 47 Matt Ryan: 46 Julio Jones: 41 Calvin Ridley: 36 James Carpenter: 34 Devonta Freeman: 31 Wes Schweitzer: 22 Brian Hill: 17 Luke Stocker: 14 Russell Gage: 11 Keith Smith: 10 Justin Hardy: 10 Matt Schaub: 9 Kenjon...

ESPN: Falcons undecided on activating Chris Lindstrom from IR

ESPN: Falcons undecided on activating Chris Lindstrom from IR

Photo by Mark Brown/ The team is reportedly split if they want to keep him out for the rest of the season. With the Falcons an unmitigated disaster, it is easy to forget that the team’s first-round pick Chris Lindstrom is still on injured reserve. The guard was absolutely solid in his limited playing time despite blocking against a stout Minnesota Vikings defensive line. Luckily, the Falcons had paid two guards starter money so there was an immediate replacement. Unluckily, both Jamon Brown and James Carpenter were terrible and the offensive line was an immediate liability. With his...

Falcons injury report: James Carpenter ready; Rams’ Jalen Ramsey, Todd Gurley to play

Falcons injury report: James Carpenter ready; Rams’ Jalen Ramsey, Todd Gurley to play

Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports The Falcons will have their left guard ready to go. The Atlanta Falcons have their hands full with the Los Angeles Rams coming to town this week. One key player will be healthy despite a question mark on Thursday. The team said guard James Carpenter is ready to play coming off a knee injury, per ESPN’s Vaughn McClure. McClure also says that corner Blidi Wreh-Wilson should be ready to return, which is a boost to the hurting secondary. That’s great news, considering starting corner Desmond Trufant has been ruled out for a second week. Everyone else...

Falcons injury report: Desmond Trufant and James Carpenter non-participants on Thursday

Falcons injury report: Desmond Trufant and James Carpenter non-participants on Thursday

Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports James Carpenter’s downgrade on the injury report is certainly concerning. The Falcons offensive line has been banged up all season long, and there may be more shuffling with that unit in Sunday’s tilt against the Rams. Starting left guard James Carpenter did not practice on Thursday with a knee injury, tossing a large question mark into Atlanta’s game plan on offense. Carpenter was listed as limited on Wednesday but was downgraded to DNP on Thursday, meaning that Sunday’s likely starting guards will be Jamon Brown and Wes Schweitzer. Where either...

Falcons snap counts: Making sense of playing time in another crushing loss

Photo by Mark Brown/ Is the problem with who is playing or who is coaching them? Offense Matt Ryan: 74 Jake Matthews: 74 James Carpenter: 74 Alex Mack: 74 Wes Schweitzer: 74 Kaleb McGary: 74 Mohamed Sanu: 62 Austin Hooper: 62 Calvin Ridley: 61 Julio Jones: 56 Devonta Freeman: 40 Ito Smith: 35 Luke Stocker: 17 Russell Gage: 16 Justin Hardy: 9 Keith Smith: 8 Jaeden Graham: 4 The Falcons got their first fully healthy game from a five man offensive line in a while, and they managed to actually score 30-plus points, avoid turnovers aside from a single irrelevant late game pick, and allowed...

Falcons vs. Texans inactives: Kenjon Barner, Kenny Stills out

Falcons vs. Texans inactives: Kenjon Barner, Kenny Stills out

Photo by Frank Mattia/Icon Sportswire/Corbis/Icon Sportswire via The Falcons dodge having to face Kenny Stills. We knew the Falcons were dealing with some big injuries before the inactives even came out. Matt Bosher was sent to injured reserve, and Jamon Brown was ruled out with a concussion. Early reports were Alex Mack would play, but now he’s playing next to struggling James Carpenter and constant injury-filler Wes Schweitzer. That’s great news for J.J. Watt and the Texans’ defensive line. Our inactives today for #ATLvsHOU ⤵️ pic.twitter.com/R15Uk8OmSw— Atlanta Falcons...

Falcons snap counts: What we can glean from a messy loss to the Titans

Falcons snap counts: What we can glean from a messy loss to the Titans

Photo by Kevin C. Cox/ The issue isn’t with how many snaps players are getting, but how they’re being utilized (and playing). Let’s get into the snap counts. You’ve got nowhere else to be on a Tuesday morning, after all. Offense Matt Ryan: 80 Jake Matthews: 80 James Carpenter: 80 Kaleb McGary: 80 Alex Mack: 74 Austin Hooper: 66 Wes Schweitzer: 64 Mohamed Sanu: 63 Julio Jones: 63 Calvin Ridley: 60 Devonta Freeman: 50 Ito Smith: 30 Luke Stocker: 24 Jamon Brown: 16 Russell Gage: 14 Justin Hardy: 14 Keith Smith: 11 Ty Sambrailo: 9 Jaeden Graham: 2 The offense is an absolute mess...

Falcons - Colts snap counts: Numbers and lessons from another lackluster game

Photo by Zach Bolinger/Icon Sportswire via The Falcons have fairly streamlined groupings on offense and defense, but it’s not translating into wins. Offense Matt Ryan: 61 Jake Matthews: 61 James Carpenter; 61 Alex Mack: 61 Kaleb McGary: 61 Devonta Freeman: 55 Austin Hooper: 54 Jamon Brown: 53 Mohamed Sanu: 50 Julio Jones: 46 Calvin Ridley: 46 Luke Stocker: 23 Keith Smith: 11 Russell Gage: 9 Wes Schweitzer: 8 Justin Hardy: 5 Kenjon Barner: 3 Ito Smith: 3 This is a fairly streamlined offense at this point, personnel-wise. Injury forced Kenjon Barner and Wes Schweitzer into the...
