Falcons-Dolphins post-game injury report: team stays healthy in disappointing loss

Falcons-Dolphins post-game injury report: team stays healthy in disappointing loss

Fact: Jake Matthews makes his own cheese The Atlanta Falcons forgot they were in the middle of a football game and came out completely flat in the second half of their loss to the Miami Dolphins this afternoon. It was a disappointing loss, one that will surely spark some intense debate in the week ahead. But before you go find a cliff to jump off of, let’s break down the injuries, or rather, the lack thereof. If there’s a silver lining after today’s loss, it’s that everyone stayed relatively healthy. Julio Jones, Ricardo Allen, and Ryan Schraeder returned from injury, and they all...

Falcons vs. Dolphins: Top Matchups to Watch

Stop Jay Ajayi, stop the Dolphins. Michael Aprile is the editor-in-chief of fellow Falcons site Rise Up Reader, where you can find more Falcons coverage. He is a cohost of the Falcoholic post-game podcast that airs weekly. The Falcons enter this game heavily favorited and much healthier than they were the last time we saw them take the field. Ricardo Allen, Ryan Schraeder, and Vic Beasley are all back in action against a Dolphins team who has yet to do anything remarkable this year (unless you consider how remarkably bad their offense has been). On the defensive side of the ball, the...

Matt Ryan throws the third fewest “turnover-worthy” passes

Matt Ryan throws the third fewest “turnover-worthy” passes

The Atlanta Falcons quarterback hasn’t found his groove yet, but he’s been remarkably safe with the football. We know Matt Ryan hasn’t looked fully comfortable much this season. If Wes Schweitzer wasn’t giving up blocks in week one, Ryan Schraeder was out for weeks, or Mohamed Sanu turned an easy red zone catch into an interception. Speaking of pass catchers, has anyone seen Taylor Gabriel this year? Austin Hooper has been an afterthought the last month, and Justin Hardy had a rough outing against the Bills. The play calling has been a bit different from last year, and we expect...

Falcons had one of the league’s best offensive lines even without Ryan Schraeder

Falcons had one of the league’s best offensive lines even without Ryan Schraeder

And even with Wes Schweitzer. The Falcons offensive line has had some issues. Number one, the season started off with Wes Schweitzer getting abused by Akiem Hicks in Chicago. The team’s second best offensive lineman, Ryan Schraeder, missed about 2.5 games due to a concussion, and his replacement was (gulp) Ty Sambrailo. You may have expected a Miami Dolphins OL coach level disaster. Nope. In fact, Pro Football Focus has Atlanta as one of the league’s best offensive lines.

The Falcons need a statement win against the Dolphins

The Falcons need a statement win against the Dolphins

The Falcons have had an up-and-down start to the season. Atlanta needs a statement win against Miami on Sunday. Atlanta has started the 2017 season 3-1. Overall, that’s a pretty good way to begin what we all hope is another Super Bowl campaign. They’ve defeated two potential NFC playoff contenders in four games, with victories over the Green Bay Packers and Detroit Lions. For the most part, they were able to do so with some key players injured, most notably RT Ryan Schraeder and EDGE Vic Beasley. The issue lies in the way that the Falcons have looked during their 3-1 start. Outside of...

Atlanta Falcons: Dan Quinn wants better running, third-down play

Atlanta Falcons head coach Dan Quinn addressed areas he wants to see improvement following the bye week. Two of those areas were rushes and third down plays. It wound up being a rather well-timed bye week for the Atlanta Falcons. After losing edge rusher Vic Beasley, Jr. to injury, they saw right tackle Ryan Schraeder […] Atlanta Falcons: Dan Quinn wants better running, third-down play - Blogging Dirty - Blogging Dirty - An Atlanta Falcons Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and more.

Vic Beasley to practice for second day in a row

Vic Beasley to practice for second day in a row

Atlanta’s top pass rusher may get another limited practice in this week The Atlanta Falcons have been absolutely demolished by injuries early in the season. They have already lost Jack Crawford for the year, and Courtney Upshaw for multiple games. If that wasn’t enough, they have been desperately missing top pass rusher Vic Beasley. We thought he might be out until November, but he’s expected to practice again. He could be back as soon as Sunday if things go well. Dan Quinn on @929TheGame says Vic Beasley will be back practicing today. Ricardo Allen, Ryan Schraeder and Terron Ward...

Atlanta Falcons: Ryan Schraeder and Ricardo Allen back to practice

The Atlanta Falcons started to get closer to full health as offensive tackle Ryan Schraeder and safety Ricardo Allen cleared the concussion protocol One of the reasons the Atlanta Falcons lost their last game was health. They entered the Week 4 contest with a 3-0 record, but they had to fill some holes.

The Falcons bye week had the desired outcome for the team’s health

The Falcons bye week had the desired outcome for the team’s health

It’s great news for Atlanta. The Atlanta Falcons needed a Week 5 bye week, as it turns out. Had they been playing a game this past weekend, they likely would’ve been without Julio Jones, Ryan Schraeder, Ricardo Allen, Mohamed Sanu, and Courtney Upshaw, and that would have been a lot to overcome. Now, per Dan Quinn, the Falcons are pretty damn close to healthy, minus the unfortunate loss of Jack Crawford. As far as we know, only Mohamed Sanu wasn’t ready to practice today, which means Schraeder, Allen, Julio and Upshaw were all back in action, and Vic Beasley must be getting close....

Ryan Schraeder and Ricardo Allen out of concussion protocol and return to practice

Ryan Schraeder and Ricardo Allen out of concussion protocol and return to practice

The Falcons appear to be getting healthier and oh thank god never leave us again Schraeder. The Atlanta Falcons were without some important starters against the Bills. The team looked markedly different without their starting safety and right tackle, both out with concussions. It is really too early to expect Damontae Kazee to be a starter, and while Ty Sambrailo improved in his few games of action, is not near Schraeder’s level. Thankfully, both seem ready to return for the Miami Dolphins. #Falcons RT Ryan Schraeder and FS Ricardo Allen are out of the concussion protocol program....

3 Falcons questions we want to know the answers to after the bye

3 Falcons questions we want to know the answers to after the bye

Of Brooks Reed, the passing game, and Vic Beasley. Is the passing game diminished? This is the biggest question of all, for so many reasons. The Falcons haven’t quite been slinging the ball around like peak 2016 thus far in 2017, for reasons that range to “bad bounces off wide receivers’ hands” to “a multi-week injury to Ryan Schraeder” to “why would you throw that, dear Matt Ryan?” Together with a tough first four games against three capable defenses, plus this being Steve Sarkisian’s first year as offensive coordinator, has conspired to make the passing attack look...

The Falcons should at least get Ryan Schraeder and Ricardo Allen back after the bye week

The Falcons should at least get Ryan Schraeder and Ricardo Allen back after the bye week

Two of the team’s more vital starters should be back from concussions by Week 6. The Atlanta Falcons are a better football team when they have Ryan Schraeder and Ricardo Allen on the field. I think we can all agree on that, even if we saw enough of Damontae Kazee to make us excited about his potential. The good news is that while there’s some uncertainty about when Mohamed Sanu, Vic Beasley and Courtney Upshaw will return, Schraeder and Allen should have little trouble returning for Week 6 against the Miami Dolphins. That’s because both have been in the NFL’s concussion protocol,...
