Falcoholinks: All the Falcons news you need for Friday, Sept. 20

Injuries that worry us, reasons the Colts will lose to the Falcons, and more. Links? On a Friday? Of course, for the links do not sleep and neither do we. Except on weekends. Then the links and us sleep. Grammar is overrated. Matt Bosher’s still out I have my concerns about Keanu Neal and Kaleb McGary, as both are still limited in practice and the game is just a handful of days away. But I save particular concern for Matt Bosher, who has not practiced the last two days and probably needs to do so today if he has any shot at all to play against the Colts. If Bosher can’t go, it’ll...

Falcons P Matt Bosher doesn’t practice Thursday; S Keanu Neal limited

Photo by Carmen Mandato/ Both worry us. Another day, another edition of the Falcons injury report. Unfortunately, as each day grinds by and we continue to see reports that key players are sidelined or limited, we’re getting a little more nervous about Week 3. Today, that’s specifically Matt Bosher and Keanu Neal. Luke Stocker was a full participant—hooray—while Matt Gono, Kaleb McGary, and Kenjon Barner were all limited. The team can weather the loss of Barner and Gono for the week, if they must, but obviously we’re hopeful McGary can be out there. If he’s not, the Falcons...

Falcons vs. Colts injury report: Matt Bosher, Kenjon Barner, and Kaleb McGary held out of Wednesday’s practice

Falcons vs. Colts injury report: Matt Bosher, Kenjon Barner, and Kaleb McGary held out of Wednesday’s practice

Reinhold Matay-USA TODAY Sports We’ll see how they progress on Thursday and Friday. It’s probably not a surprise following the Falcons’ decision to sign punter Matt Wile on Tuesday, but Matt Bosher was held out of Wednesday’s practice completely. Bosher, who is working through a groin injury, was on the Did Not Participate list alongside running back/return specialist Kenjon Barner and tackle Kaleb McGary. Barner has an ankle injury. McGary suffered a knee injury in Sunday’s win over the Eagles. It looked very bad at the time, but the rookie was somehow able to re-enter the...

Falcons snap counts and notes for Week 2 against the Eagles

Jason Getz-USA TODAY Sports The Falcons won, by and large, by leaning on their best players. What a novel idea. There are few surprises in the snap counts, but that doedsn’t mean you won’t learn anything from them. Let’s dive in. Offense Matt Ryan: 66 Jake Matthews: 66 James Carpenter: 66 Alex Mack: 66 Jamon Brown: 66 Mohamed Sanu: 55 Julio Jones: 54 Austin Hooper: 50 Calvin Ridley: 42 Devonta Freeman: 41 Kaleb McGary: 37 Luke Stocker: 30 Ty Sambrailo: 29 Ito Smith: 25 Justin Hardy: 11 Keith Smith: 11 Russell Gage: 9 Jaeden Graham: 2 We have to see what Kaleb McGary’s...

Damontae Kazee heads to locker room before halftime

Damontae Kazee heads to locker room before halftime

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports C’mon, no more injuries. The injuries just keep piling up for both the Falcons and Eagles tonight. Carson Wentz, DeSean Jackson and Alshon Jeffery are all out of the game for Philadelphia, and the Falcons have now lost Kaleb McGary and Damontae Kazee, with Matt Bosher in the game but ailing. Kazee is an important piece of the defense as a ballhawking nickel cornerback with the ability to play safety in a pinch. If the Falcons are missing him, they’ll need to lean on Kendall Sheffield or Blidi Wreh-Wilson, likely the latter. Wreh-Wilson is an experienced...

Kaleb McGary taken out of the game on cart with knee injury

Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports The Falcons are currently out both their first round picks along the offensive line. The Falcons, at the direction of Arthur Blank, took pains to prioritize their offensive line. Part of that was using two first round picks on two of the better linemen available, Chris Lindstrom and Kaleb McGary, and hoping they’d help solidify a shaky offensive line. That seemed likely, given how well the two performed in the early summer, but injury is cruel and capricious and omnipresent. As of right now, the Falcons are out both of those players, with Kaleb McGary...

Falcons’ final injury report for Week 2 vs. Eagles

Falcons’ final injury report for Week 2 vs. Eagles

Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports Matt Gono will be held out of Sunday night’s game. The right tackle position for the Falcons will once again be a rotational affair against the Eagles in Week 2. The team has released the final injury report, and Gono will miss a second consecutive game with a back injury. If you know me at all, you know I’m not a fan of rotating anything on the offensive line. It disrupts the team’s ability to build chemistry and get in a rhythm. Here’s hoping the one-two punch of Ty Sambrailo and Kaleb McGary can keep Matt Ryan upright. Kenjon Barner and Wes...

Rookie Kaleb McGary set to start at right tackle for Falcons

Rookie Kaleb McGary set to start at right tackle for Falcons

Depending on the system, some rookies have to be gently inserted to the starting lineup for them to be effective. For Atlanta Falcons offensive lineman Kaleb McGary, that chance is going to come sooner rather than later. There hasn’t been a solid option at right tackle for the Falcons this season, and they drafted McGary […] The post Rookie Kaleb McGary set to start at right tackle for Falcons appeared first on ClutchPoints.

Matt Gono limited but will return to practice

Matt Gono limited but will return to practice

Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports The promising young tackle is ticketed for a backup role after Kaleb McGary seized the starting job. Matt Gono played well enough this summer to get a first crack at the starting job at right tackle while Kaleb McGary geared up, but an injury heading into Week 1 effectively took him out of the running. After the McGary and Ty Sambrailo rotated last week, McGary got the job and will likely be the starter going forward. Still, Gono may have a bright future with the team as their swing tackle, and he’ll be making his return this week. Sort of. Dan Quinn...

Falcons release updated depth chart, name Jamon Brown and Kaleb McGary as starters

The Eagles are coming off a Week 1 victory; and the Falcons, well, they aren’t. The Falcons released an updated depth chart today. And guess what? They named Jamon Brown and Kaleb McGary as starters. Less than a week ago, Brown was wrapping up an epic camp battle with James Carpenter. Brown didn’t win the right guard job outright, but his contract says a lot about what the team thinks of him going forward. Between Brown and...

Kaleb McGary looking more likely to start at right tackle Week 1

Photo by David Rosenblum/Icon Sportswire via The stars are aligning with Matt Gono (out) and Ty Sambrailo (bad). The Falcons did what few NFL teams can manage: Rebuild the offensive line with top draft picks and signings. Last season’s Week 1 right tackle Ryan Schraeder was demoted then cut after a very poor year. He was replaced with Ty Sambrailo, who was eventually handed a three-year, $14.25 deal. That did not stop the Falcons from trading back into the end of the first round to select Kaleb McGary. Things appeared to change a lot since then. McGary missed almost all of training...

Atlanta Falcons first-round pick Kaleb McGary finally got back on the field on Thursday night after recovering with a cardiac ablation procedure. McGary played 40 snaps during the game and after the game coach Dan Quinn said he was impressed.

Falcons’ Matt Gono highlights the payoff of Dan Quinn’s developmental mindset

Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports Finding quality offensive tackles is hard. If you can develop one, you’ve won the lottery. The Falcons have an interesting situation at right tackle. They’ve paid veteran Ty Sambrailo to be a “starter” even if he has not lived up to that billing this preseason. They drafted Kaleb McGary to be the future at the position, but his health has kept him from leaping ahead just yet. That has unexpectedly thrust Matt Gono into the spotlight, and as I recently opined, I believe he deserves to start the season as the starter at right tackle — at least until...

Who are the Falcons roster locks heading into the final preseason game?

Photo by Todd Kirkland/ The Falcons are really deciding on, at most, about a quarter of their 53 man roster. One of the things that’s easiest to lose in discussions about the Falcons’ roster over the summer is how much of it is already in place. The reality is that there are but two starting jobs that are truly open—both are on the offensive line, where James Carpenter and Jamon Brown are competing at left guard and Ty Sambrailo, Kaleb McGary, and Matt Gono at right tackle—and everything that’s left is depth. I’m not going to talk about kicker because I don’t want to,...
