Ricardo Allen selected as Falcons’ Walter Payton Man of the Year nominee

Carmen Mandato/ A prestigious award, and a deserving candidate. The Atlanta Falcons announced Thursday that the team has nominated safety Ricardo Allen for the Walter Payton Man of the Year Award.

Falcons injury report: Julio Jones, Calvin Ridley, Austin Hooper limited again Thursday

Falcons injury report: Julio Jones, Calvin Ridley, Austin Hooper limited again Thursday

Photo by Carmen Mandato/ We’ll have a better idea of their status for this week when we see Friday’s injury report. If you’re trying to set your fantasy lineups in advance of this Thursday Night Football matchup between the Cowboys and the Bears, I hope you don’t have Julio Jones, Calvin Ridley, or Austin Hooper rostered. All three were limited again today, which leaves their status for Sunday up in the air. Luke Stocker, Jaedin Graham, and Russell Gage were all limited on Thursday after being limited on Wednesday. On defense, Desmond Trufant, Ricardo Allen, and Sharod Neasman...

Falcons injury report: Julio Jones, Calvin Ridley, Austin Hooper limited on Wednesday

Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports Limited is better than not participating. The Falcons were back at it on Wednesday after a mini-bye week following last week’s Thanksgiving loss to the Saints. There are a number of key players to keep an eye on this week. For the offense, Julio Jones, Calvin Ridley, Russell Gage and Austin Hooper were all limited with their respective injuries. Basically the whole tight ends depth chart was limited, with Jaeden Graham (thigh) and Luke Stocker (back) both showing up on the limited list on Wednesday. On defense, Desmond Trufant (toe), Ricardo Allen...

Ricardo Allen exits game with injury, replaced by Jamal Carter

Ricardo Allen exits game with injury, replaced by Jamal Carter

Photo by Carmen Mandato/ The hyper-reliable safety’s status is uncertain. The Falcons haven’t had a good start to this game—they’re somehow only down by four despite that—but it got worse with Ricardo Allen’s injury. Allen got stiff armed out of the play on Jared Cook’s big pickup earlier, but he’s one of the team’s most important defenders, and if he misses any time today it’ll hurt this already shaky Falcons defense. Allen actually walking off under his own power. Limping— vaughn mcclure (@vxmcclure23) November 29, 2019 We’re waiting for the status...

Falcons vs. Panthers: 3 Falcons up, 3 Falcons down after second win in two weeks

Falcons vs. Panthers: 3 Falcons up, 3 Falcons down after second win in two weeks

Bob Donnan-USA TODAY Sports Fact: Ricardo Allen toes get very cold when he sleeps The Falcons went into yesterday’s game a 2-7 team. By the end of the game, the Falcons were 3-7 and on paper, that doesn’t mean much. (They still aren’t going to the playoffs and 2019 is still a lost season.) But in practice, and in real time, it meant a lot. The Falcons appear revitalized after a much-needed bye week. Notwithstanding their plummeting draft position, the fan base is hyped, because the Falcons are winning football games. It’s a good feeling. Let’s take a look at some of the best...
