Calvin Ridley questionable to return to Buccaneers vs. Falcons with ankle injury

Calvin Ridley questionable to return to Buccaneers vs. Falcons with ankle injury

ENOUGH ALREADY. The 2018 Falcons season has been an injury-fueled nightmare, and that trend continued Sunday when rookie wideout Calvin Ridley left the field with an ankle injury. Ridley is questionable to return to the game against the Bucs. Ridley had three catches for 47 yards before leaving the game. He’s been taken to the locker room for further examination. In Ridley’s absence, the team will need Julio Jones and Mohamed Sanu in particular to step up. Both have already done so, with Jones hauling in all five of his targets so far for 35 yards and Sanu grabbing a 35-yard catch...

Falcons vs Buccaneers: Thoughts and predictions in our latest podcast

Falcons vs Buccaneers: Thoughts and predictions in our latest podcast

Don’t expect to see any defense on Sunday. At 1-4, the Falcons are in a great position to destroy any shred of hope they have left of making the playoffs. Standing in their way, however, is the Mike Smith defense of the inconsistent Tampa Bay Buccaneers. This match up could be the difference between holding on to hope for the season and completely letting go and looking towards 2019. Jeanna and DW are joined by fellow writer Adnan Ikic to talk about the upcoming game. Some of the topics discussed: Why this game could be a big bounce back for Matt Ryan and Julio Jones The incredibly odd...

‘Thursday Night Kickoff’ on FOX 5 Atlanta: What magic can the Falcons pull to make the playoffs?

‘Thursday Night Kickoff’ on FOX 5 Atlanta: What magic can the Falcons pull to make the playoffs?

Tune in tonight at 7 p.m. ET to find out what magic the Falcons need to work to turn things around this season. I’m not going to sugarcoat this: It’s been a rough season for the Falcons. They’re off to a 1-4 start, which is the worst we’ve seen from this team in some time. The defense has been atrocious, and the offense seems to only be able to get things done at home — which is too bad, as they only play eight games in the friendly confines of the Benz. The offensive line, which had been a strength, is struggling. Julio Jones hasn’t scored a single touchdown, much to the...

Here comes Julio Jones, the last player the Bucs need to see

TAMPA- - The Atlanta Falcons are reeling. They're 1-4. Falcons star receiver Julio Jones has had his struggles. He is third in the NFL in receiving yards but doesn't have a touchdown. He had just five receptions for 62 yards last Sunday as the Falcons were battered by the

Falcons vs. Steelers: Snap counts for a dismal beatdown

What was illuminated was not pretty.

All the starters played, but aside from Jake Matthews and Wes Schweitzer, who had largely solid...

Falcons-Steelers post-game injury report: Takk McKinley exits game with “cramping”

Falcons-Steelers post-game injury report: Takk McKinley exits game with “cramping”

Fact: Takk McKinley gets three all beef patties on his Big Macs It was a rough day for the Atlanta Falcons. It’s hard to digest a loss like that. A playoff berth seems like a real long-shot at this point. And given that we’re only in week 5, we likely have several miserable months ahead of us. But alas, there were injuries. Let’s break them down, Falcoholics. Julio Jones had a pretty rough day. Steve Sarkisian struggled to get his star wide receiver involved. On one of his first targets, Jones got a little dinged up. Probably just your typical Julio playing hurt scenario, but it’s...

Joe Haden shut down Julio Jones. Is the Steelers' defense — gasp! — OK?

Joe Haden followed Julio Jones to the slot, and he followed him to the left side, and he might've followed him into the locker room, and he might've followed him onto the plane.

Julio Jones plays his 100th game today, with a little history on the line

Julio Jones plays his 100th game today, with a little history on the line

The GOAT, or at least one of the GOATs. When Julio Jones lines up on the field on Sunday and prepares to catch a bunch of passes against overmatched Pittsburgh defensive backs, he won’t just be playing another game. He’ll be playing the 100th game of his career, and as you’d expect for a player of Julio’s caliber, that big round number comes with some history attached to it. Julio already has more yards through 99 games—to say nothing of 100—in NFL history, so he’s just going to add to his total on Sunday against the Steelers. With eight receptions, though, he’ll tie...

Falcons teammates Julio Jones, Calvin Ridley, and Nick Saban’s witching hour experiments

Falcons teammates Julio Jones, Calvin Ridley, and Nick Saban’s witching hour experiments

Calvin Ridley is scoring, Julio Jones isn’t, and it has something to do with Nick Saban’s evil experiments at Alabama. In the early morning hours of January 7, 2011, at around 2 a.m., Nick Saban worked in his secret lab located underneath Bryant-Denny Stadium. Offensive coordinator Jim McElwain looked on, and Julio Jones laid with eyes closed in the experiment chair. Later that day, Julio — Saban’s most successful project — would declare for the NFL Draft as an agreed upon deal the Alabama coach had with the NCAA: he was allowed to build these freakish athletes in the lab to help...
