Desmond Trufant questionable to return after suffering second quarter thigh injury against the Cowboys

Fact: Desmond Trufant juggles pineapples in his spare time Today’s game against the Cowboys has been emblematic of the Falcons season as a whole. Inconsistent offense and lots of injuries on defense. Both Duke Riley and Damontae Kazee were banged up earlier in the first quarter. Starting cornerback Desmond Trufant just suffered a second quarter thigh injury. Trufant is questionable to return, which doesn’t means much, given that both Riley and Kazee returned to the game after their injuries. Falcons linebacker De’Vondre Campbell into Trufant as he was attempting to...

Damontae Kazee questionable to return after first quarter shoulder injury against the Cowboys

Fact: Damontae Kazee puts ketchup on his cheerios The Falcons have had a rough year on the injury front. I won’t list all the players lost to injury since the season began, because it’s depressing. Ricardo Allen’s season-ending achilles injury was perhaps one of the most potentially impactful injuries this season. Lucky for us, Damontae Kazee has filled in admirably, racking up a league-leading five interceptions in Allen’s absence. Fast forward to today’s game. Damontae Kazee injured his shoulder during the first quarter. Damontae Kazee is questionable to return with a...

Injury update: Rob Gronkowski expected to return next Sunday

The NFL’s best tight end will be back against the Jets. After looking like one of the NFL’s best units between weeks four and seven, the New England Patriots offense took a step back recently and began to struggle with consistency. One of the reasons for that might be injuries suffered by three core players: running back Sony Michel, right guard Shaq Mason and tight end Rob Gronkowski. Luckily for the team, its current bye week gives the trio additional time to rehab before returning. And return they ultimately will: Michel was already active against the Tennessee Titans last Sunday,...

Injury update: Kerryon Johnson leaves game with knee injury

Johnson left Sunday’s game and did not return. The Detroit Lions have been leaning on rookie Kerryon Johnson this season, and he has excelled as a versatile three-down running back. Johnson had been the most effective weapon for the Lions, but his day is finished after suffering a knee injury against the Carolina Panthers. The rookie was performing excellently, managing 87 rushing yards on 15 carries and a touchdown, while adding two catches for 10 yards. Johnson has firmly displaced LeGarrette Blount as lead back. However, in the third quarter, Johnson was tackled awkwardly, landing on...

Washington QB Alex Smith carted off after suffering injury

Significant NFC East development. Redskins starting quarterback Alex Smith seemingly suffered a significant ankle injury during Washington’s Week 11 game against the Houston Texans. Smith went down awkwardly while being sacked by the Texans’ defense. I’d embed the clip here to show you what it looked like but it’s probably too gruesome for that. If you really want to watch, you can click here, but I’d advise against it. Smith had to be carted off the field after getting hurt. That means backup quarterback Colt McCoy is now under center for Jay Gruden’s team. Washington does not...

Chargers DT Corey Liuget carted off field with knee injury

Los Angeles Chargers interior defensive lineman Corey Liuget has suffered an injury to his right knee. He stayed down on the field following a play earlier and was in visible pain as he was attended to by the training staff. Eventually, he got back to his feet and proceeded gingerly off the field. Once on the sideline, Liuget was taken via cart to the locker room for further evaluation. He is questionable to return. Without Liuget, the defensive line is particularly thin today as rookie defensive lineman Justin Jones was inactive for today’s game. Hopefully, the offense (which just scored...

Falcons 6, Cowboys 3: Second half open thread

It would be nice to see this team score more than three points at a time today. The Falcons haven’t gotten much done against the Cowboys so far, but at least they have been able to hold Dallas to a single field goal at the half. The problem is that they’ve only managed to score two field goals. Everything in this game has been a mixed bag. We’ve had injury scares with Damontae Kazee and Desmond Trufant, both of whom returned to the game. We’ve seen Julio Jones save Matt Ryan from not one, but two picks, and we’ve also seen the dang ball bounce right off of his hands like...

Colt McCoy throws his first TD of the year Alex Smith went down and looks like he suffered a season-ending injury. Colt McCoy has stepped in and thrown Jordan Reed his first TD of the season.
