Final injury report: Preston Brown and Michael Johnson questionable

The Bengals are down two starters and could be without two more in Carolina. The final injury reports are coming out, and both the Bengals and Panthers will be missing key players on Sunday. For the Bengals, there aren’t any surprises as Joe Mixon and Billy Price have been ruled out, while Preston Brown and Michael Johnson are questionable to play. Brown is still working his way back from his Week 1 ankle injury, which led to him being inactive in Week 2 after getting the questionable designation then as well. I would venture to guess he plays Sunday, but it’s far from a given. As for...

NFL Week 3 Panthers & TNF Fantasy Football Start/Sit Advice

Let’s look at both match-ups; Browns v Jets and Bengals v Panthers I didn’t do too bad in my advice last week. AJ Green did have a nice game vs the Ravens. All of my Must Starts put up at least double digits. Falcons RB Tevin Coleman was a good sleeper. The Panthers did a nice job on Julio Jones though, holding him to 64 yards receiving. Brown vs Jets There aren’t many sure fire plays in this game. In fact I would say try not to start anyone from this game. The only player I would say start is WR Jarvis Landry provided he’s not a late scratch as his injury status is...

Thursday injury report: Preston Brown and Michael Johnson still limited

The Bengals really need Preston Brown to suit up Sunday against a strong Panthers ground game. The Bengals are getting healthier ahead of their Week 3 matchup with the Panthers, but several key players still look iffy for Sunday. That includes linebacker Preston Brown and defensive end Michael Johnson, both of whom were limited on Thursday for a second-straight day. Brown is recovering from his ankle injury suffered in Week 1, while Johnson is battling an MCL sprain suffered in Week 2. It looks like both players are trending toward a questionable designation for Week 3, though Brown looks...

Falcons injury update: Julio Jones eases concerns about calf; DEs McKinley, Shelby still out

At least the Jet seems to be okay. As the Falcons get in gear for their first rivalry bout with the Saints in Atlanta Sunday, the injury bug continues to crawl around. Falcondom clutched its pearls when word came in of Julio Jones and a calf injury that held him out of practice Wednesday and Thursday. Though, he spoke with reporters about the issue around missing his second practice and tried to calm any worries it was major. Julio Jones said missing practice yesterday was a precaution. Nothing serious. Said his calf tightened his up during the Panthers win.— Jason Butt...

Falcons WR Julio Jones says he’s ‘fine’ after missing practice with calf injury

The Atlanta Falcons are coming off an encouraging 31-24 win over the Carolina Panthers last Sunday, but it had featured star wide receiver Julio Jones suffering a calf injury late in the contest. This had led to Jones not participating in practice on Wednesday that drew some concerns about his availability for Week 3 action […] The post Falcons WR Julio Jones says he’s ‘fine’ after missing practice with calf injury appeared first on ClutchPoints.

Bengals’ coaches are confident in Giovani Bernard and Mark Walton stepping up vs. Panthers

The Bengals will be without Joe Mixon, but the coaches seem to think their backups will be able to cover for him. The Bengals got some sobering news after Thursday night’s game. Joe Mixon needed a minor surgery on his knee that would cause him to miss at least two games. Then, Tra Carson hurt his hamstring in preparation for the Cincinnati’s game against Carolina on Sunday. That caused the team to waive him and sign Thomas Rawls as an emergency back. What was once a deep position for the Bengals is suddenly on its last leg. However, Giovani Bernard, who is going to become the feature...

Bobby Hart not working at Bengals’ Thursday practice

Could this pave the way for Jake Fisher or Cedric Ogbuehi to start against the Panthers? It may only be Week 3, but the Bengals are starting to get hit hard on the injury front. After losing Billy Price and Joe Mixon for at least a few games, the Bengals may now have an issue at right tackle, as Bobby Hart was unable to get in a full practice on Thursday.

Week 3 brings to us a very important game against our archrival—the New Orleans Saints (1-1). The Falcons (1-1) have played two tough games back-to-back, with a close loss against the Eagles and a convincing if uncomfortable win against the Panthers.

Panthers vs Bengals: Offensive preview

The Panthers face another tough test as they host the undefeated Bengals on Sunday. The Carolina Panthers have endured two tough tests in the beginning weeks of their 2018 campaign. While the Panthers’ offense was able to do just enough to keep the team afloat, Carolina fell to the Falcons 31-24 for their first loss of the season. The Panthers’ offense is still adjusting to life after Greg Olsen’s foot injury. Despite the loss, Cam Newton looked solid with a 71.1% pass completion and was able to test things out as he looks for a new safety target. Things won’t get any easier for the...

What We Learned: Falcons vs. Panthers

Fact: Matt Ryan was discouraged about his speed rating on Madden 19. A key victory by the Falcons in a must-win situation evened the Falcons’ record at 1-1. Here is what we learned from the Falcons’ 31-24 win over division rival Carolina. There were several chips stacked against the Atlanta Falcons entering their Week 2 showdown against NFC South foe Carolina Panthers. The starting middle linebacker was on the shelf with a foot injury, while the exceptional strong safety was done for the year with a torn ACL. In the meantime, the team’s No. 1 running back is dinged up with a knee...

Falcons vs. Panthers recap: The train is back on the tracks

The Falcons fell short on defense and squandered opportunities on offense, yet they still won. The Atlanta Falcons needed this win. They didn’t need it in the sense that the season was going to fall apart if they didn’t get it, of course, because it’s the second week of the season. But they had a lot to prove after the Eagles game, as we’re all aware, and the injuries they were facing only magnified the concerns about their ability to put away quality football teams. This Panthers team had plenty of injuries of their own, but the Falcons did what they needed to do, and they...

Takk McKinley has a groin injury, per Dan Quinn, and there will be no updates until Wednesday

Let the ominous organ music start playing. Takkarist McKinley has been one of the team’s few bright spots as a pass rusher through the first two games of the season. Given that this season has been an unrelenting nightmare on the injury front, I guess it was inevitable that Takk would get hurt, too. Takk was not in for the last couple of series against the Panthers, sparking a real and understandable nervousness about his health. Now he’s dealing with a groin injury and the team is not providing any updates until Wednesday, which has been a kiss of death thus far this season. We’ll...

Falcons vs. Panthers key info, tracker and open thread for Week 2

It’s time for a battle of two wounded would-be titans in the NFC South. This has been a deeply grim week-plus for Falcons fans. Having such a long layoff normally would be fine, but when it comes on the heels of a lousy season-opening loss and is filled with terrible injury news, it’s not hard for the mood to sour and turn dour. Some of that has been justified. The Falcons didn’t look good in Week 1, which would breed fear and anxiety even if they hadn’t also lost Keanu Neal, Deion Jones and now Devonta Freeman for a while. But it’s also true that the Falcons are at home today...
