It’s time for the Falcons to play their young players

Jason Getz-USA TODAY Sports Guys like Matt Gono, Qadree Ollison, Deadrin Senat and Jordan Miller need to get meaningful game snaps now. With nine losses already for the year, the Falcons are now completely out of the playoff race. There’s nothing left to play for this season, so it’s time for the organization to insist on playing young guys in the remaining four games. Simply put, if there’s going to be a coaching change in 2020 - which seems likely now - that coach will benefit greatly from knowing what each of these young guys was able to do in the tail end of the season. Let’s...

The Falcons didn’t play particularly well against the Buccaneers, and the couple of personnel wrinkles we saw weren’t the major reason for that. Nonetheless, we snap on. Offense Jake Matthews: 87 (100%) James Carpenter: 87 Alex Mack: 87 Kaleb McGary: 87 Matt Ryan: 76 Calvin Ridley: 74 Russell Gage: 64 Jaeden Graham: 57 Jamon Brown: 55 Brian Hill: 51 Julio Jones: 49 Christian Blake: 38 Luke Stocker: 32 Wes Schweitzer: 32 Qadree Ollison: 23 Justin Hardy: 15 Kenjon Barner: 13 Keith Smith: 11 Matt Schaub:...

Falcons expected to add former Washington RB Craig Reynolds to practice squad

Falcons expected to add former Washington RB Craig Reynolds to practice squad

The news on Devonta Freeman’s injury is still unclear, but early reports indicate he “could” be out about two weeks. The Falcons have Brian Hill and special teamer Kenjon Barner as the only potential running backs that have taken an offensive snap in their career. Fifth-round rookie Qadree Ollison was active on Sunday against the New Orleans Saints, but only played sparingly on special teams. That is not much depth, and certainly could become problematic if anyone suffered...
