Rookie linebacker Foyesade Oluokun held out of Wednesday’s practice with toe injury

The extent of the injury is unclear. The Falcons’ second selection in the sixth round of the 2018 NFL Draft has been beset by a bum wheel, it seems. Foyesade Oluokun, the rookie linebacker from Yale who has raised some eyebrows during OTAs on both defense and special teams did not practice on Wednesday due to a nondescript toe injury. Per Kelsey Conway, Dan Quinn had little to say about the nature, extent or cause of the injury in his post-practice presser: Rookie linebacker Foye Oluokun has a toe injury and didn’t practice today, Coach Quinn had no further update on it— Kelsey...

FA DT Ahtyba Rubin heads to Oakland

The Falcons must be content with the group at hand. The Falcons will see one of their former defensive linemen head to the West Coast. A report has come through saying that DT Ahtyba Rubin will sign with the Oakland Raiders, presumably on a one-year deal. Congratulations to Ahtyba Rubin on signing with the @RAIDERS!!! #TUBATIME pic.twitter.com/aCszx9fWWK— Sportstars (@SPORTSTARSNYC) June 11, 2018 Rubin spent about half a season and a brief playoff run with the Falcons, helping them shore up their run defense after the season-ending injury to Jack Crawford.

Report: Carson Wentz is ‘shockingly ahead of schedule’ in his recovery

Great news. Hey, here’s a non-White House related Eagles update that you’re bound to enjoy! NFL insider Chris Mortensen appeared on ESPN’s NFL Live on Tuesday afternoon and said Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz is ‘shockingly ahead of schedule’ in his recovery from ACL/LCL injury. “I’m always one of the skeptics on something like this because it’s a nine-to-12 month recovery from ACL surgery and nine months is right up to that Thursday night opener against the Atlanta Falcons in September. But, from people inside [the Eagles organization] who were somewhat...

Jack Crawford says he’s healthy, ensuring a strong DT rotation for Atlanta

The veteran defensive tackle has seen his position change a lot since he was injured, but he’ll have a third down role at the very least. I missed this a few days ago in the craziness of the offseason*, but it appears Jack Crawford is indeed totally healthy, per Jack Crawford. He told Kelsey Conway with the Falcons so, at the very least, and given the positive reports we’ve heard up to this point I find it entirely believable. That means that barring any further injuries or a last second shopping spree, the Falcons are pretty well set at the defensive tackle position. All offseason...

Andy Levitre, Takk McKinley making progress in returns from injury

The team will need both in 2018. Good news, everyone! As expected, those Falcons dealing with injuries are making solid progress, so everything is good and there’s nothing to worry about here in late May. Per ESPN’s Vaughn McClure, the team feels good about where three prominent injured Falcons are as the team kicks off a short stint of OTAs. Dan Quinn said he likes the progress Takk McKinley (shoulder), Justin Hardy (shoulder), and Andy Levitre (triceps. knee) coming off injuries. McKinley and Levitre worked on the side today.— vaughn mcclure (@vxmcclure23) May 30,...

Mike has previously spent time with the Cleveland Browns and the Pittsburgh Steelers. He missed all of 2017 with a torn patellar tendon, an injury sustained with the Steelers in training camp. The Dolphins currently...
