Eagles vs. Falcons: Russell Gage is active while Deadrin Senat and multiple running backs highlight inactives

Photo by Gavin Baker/Icon Sportswire via Falcons have no surprises for Sunday Night Football. The weekly inactives are like the first smell of football. It’s so close you can almost see Vic Beasley blowing a play. We noted earlier this week that Matt Gono was out. Otherwise, we are seeing the healthy depth players the Falcons just don’t have a lot of use for.

Falcoholinks: All the Falcons news you need for Friday, Sept. 13

Photo by Hannah Foslien/ Russell Gage returns to practice, John Abraham is a Hall of Fame nominee, and much more. We’re closing in on Sunday night, and that means we need to start asking the big questions and considering the matchup ahead. Fortunately for you, we started that yesterday, and we have a heaping platter of links for your consumption. Tuck in! Russell returns I dunno about you guys, but watching Russell Gage leaping around trying to make insanely acrobatic catches was one of the few highlights of Sunday for me. Seeing him get injured on a cheap shot was pretty galling....

Falcons injury report: Russell Gage returns to practice on Thursday

Harrison Barden-USA TODAY Sports That’s encouraging news for the Falcons WR. The Falcons were back at it on Thursday, continuing the process of getting ready for Sunday night’s tilt against the Eagles. There’s some encouraging news on the injury report, as Russell Gage was able to return to practice on a limited basis. Gage suffered a concussion during Sunday’s loss to the Vikings and has been in the league’s protocol ever since. He was held out of Wednesday’s practice entirely, but was able to participate on a limited basis on Thursday. The other good news on Thursday’s...

Falcons vs. Vikings: post-game injury report

Falcons vs. Vikings: post-game injury report

Photo by Adam Bettcher/ Fact: Unfortunately the Falcons didn’t walk away from their season opener unscathed. The performance on the field was unsatisfactory. They start 0-1 after a hype-filled offseason; and what about their ego? Yes, Falcons fans, we were hurt literally and figuratively this weekend. We’ll parse out those emotions in the days ahead, but there were some pretty significant injuries worth mentioning. Let’s break ‘em down. Russell Gage The second year receiver took a nasty helmet to helmet hit from Harris Smith during the second quarter. Oddly the officials...

Russell Gage in concussion protocol

Russell Gage in concussion protocol

Harrison Barden-USA TODAY Sports Gage took an uncalled helmet-to-helmet hit in this one. Russell Gage nearly had a tremendous sideline catch and made another impressive grab over the middle in the first half of this Falcons-Vikings game, proving that the growth he showed as a receiver this summer was no illusion. Unfortunately, he’s also now in the concussion protocol. He took a helmet-to-helmet hit on the catch I mentioned above from Harrison Smith, a hit that I’m sort of shocked wasn’t called, given the NFL’s supposed emphasis on getting those out of the sport. It was...

Russell Gage, Kendall Sheffield injuries don’t appear to be long-term concerns

Russell Gage, Kendall Sheffield injuries don’t appear to be long-term concerns

Aaron Doster-USA TODAY Sports This is a massive relief for a couple of likely core reserves. The Falcons suffered three injuries on Thursday night that we knew about and a few others that were made evident just recently, such as the Ty Sambrailo shoulder injury. We had heard that the injury to Damontae Kazee was not a broken rib and that it was day-to-day. Well, we finally have a bit of an update on a couple of the other guys who got banged up. It looks like the injuries for both Russell Gage and Kendall Sheffield are not considered long term. You can all take a deep breath now. No...

Falcons vs Jets: thoughts on Ito Smith, the offensive line and other standouts

Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports Our latest post-game podcast dives into the frustrating performance against the Jets. Evan Birchfield and I are back again for another post-game podcast.
