P Matt Bosher ruled out for Falcons vs. Colts

P Matt Bosher ruled out for Falcons vs. Colts

Reinhold Matay-USA TODAY Sports It’s Matt Wile’s time to shine, apparently. There’s good news and bad news on the final injury report before the Falcons face the Colts in Indianapolis in Week 3. Matt Bosher has been ruled out for Sunday’s game, but everyone else appears to be good to go. The biggest concerns this week for Atlanta, aside from Bosher, were Keanu Neal and Kaleb McGary. McGary was still limited on Friday, but he wasn’t ruled out for Sunday’s matchup. Neal was a full go for the week’s final practice period. Matt Gono has worked his way back up to full...

The Falcoholic staff’s picks for Falcons vs. Colts and the rest of Week 3’s NFL games

Brett Davis-USA TODAY Sports Which Falcons will show up against the Colts? The Falcons pleasantly surprised us in Week 2 against the Eagles after falling flat the previous week in Minnesota. This week the Falcons travel to Indianapolis to take on the Colts, and our staff universally is predicting a Falcons win in Week 3. Last week we weren’t so optimistic. Everyone but Cory, DW, Evan, and Kevin went with the Eagles, but the Falcons managed to pull off a close one, winning 24-20. We were all completely wrong about the Panthers, who lost to the Buccaneers as Cam Newton fought through...

Falcons vs. Colts injury report: Matt Bosher, Kenjon Barner, and Kaleb McGary held out of Wednesday’s practice

Falcons vs. Colts injury report: Matt Bosher, Kenjon Barner, and Kaleb McGary held out of Wednesday’s practice

Reinhold Matay-USA TODAY Sports We’ll see how they progress on Thursday and Friday. It’s probably not a surprise following the Falcons’ decision to sign punter Matt Wile on Tuesday, but Matt Bosher was held out of Wednesday’s practice completely. Bosher, who is working through a groin injury, was on the Did Not Participate list alongside running back/return specialist Kenjon Barner and tackle Kaleb McGary. Barner has an ankle injury. McGary suffered a knee injury in Sunday’s win over the Eagles. It looked very bad at the time, but the rookie was somehow able to re-enter the...

Falcons’ final injury report for Week 2 vs. Eagles

Falcons’ final injury report for Week 2 vs. Eagles

Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports Matt Gono will be held out of Sunday night’s game. The right tackle position for the Falcons will once again be a rotational affair against the Eagles in Week 2. The team has released the final injury report, and Gono will miss a second consecutive game with a back injury. If you know me at all, you know I’m not a fan of rotating anything on the offensive line. It disrupts the team’s ability to build chemistry and get in a rhythm. Here’s hoping the one-two punch of Ty Sambrailo and Kaleb McGary can keep Matt Ryan upright. Kenjon Barner and Wes...

The Falcoholic staff’s picks for Eagles vs. Falcons and the rest of Week 2

Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports So many of us were so very wrong last week. The Falcoholic staff is back with these week’s picks. Boy oh boy, did that loss against the Vikings ever have an impact on our collective psyche. Only Cory, DW, Evan, and Kevin think the Falcons pull this one off on Sunday night. The rest of us are still reeling from the Week 1 disaster. The Eagles have had the Falcons’ number, winning the last three matchups in a row. It’s worth noting, though, that those three games were all in enemy territory. The last time these two teams met in Atlanta...

Falcons injury report: Russell Gage returns to practice on Thursday

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 injury report and practice notes and quotes, Sept. 11, 2019

Harrison Barden-USA TODAY Sports Here’s everything you need to know from Wednesday’s practice. It was Competition Wednesday in Flowery Branch, and let’s hope the team got a little better today after Sunday’s abysmal showing against the Vikings. Dan Quinn said that for the team, Competition Wednesday couldn’t get here soon enough. “Certainly, this week, to get back on the field with the guys, that process is fully underway. We certainly, over the last couple of days, evaluated and identified where mistakes were made. That’s the fun part about it,” Quinn said, via a...

Falcons players share the meanings behind their jersey numbers

Falcons players share the meanings behind their jersey numbers

Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports Some answers were poignant, some were funny, and they were all interesting. If you’re a Falcons fan, certain numbers will bring up specific associations with players. For many people, No. 7 will always connect to Michael Vick, and it’ll never stop being weird to see someone other than Roddy White wearing No. 84. So how do players end up with their jersey numbers? Devonta Freeman chose his number to honor his aunt, Tamekia Nicole Brown, who was just 24 when she passed away after suffering a heart attack. “A lot of people don’t know, but my auntie,...

Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports Here’s what you need to know from the final practice before Week 1. The Falcons were back at it on “Fast Friday” in Flowery Branch, Ga. today finalizing their preparations for the Vikings. “So today for us on the Friday, a big time to finish our preparation, I was really pleased with the work that these guys put in together,” Quinn said after practice. “And that was really kind of the goal we set out at the beginning of the week when we started on Bonus Monday. So that part was big for us, preparation wise. Now you can trust it, because you...

Arthur Blank will be ‘surprised and disappointed’ if Julio Jones’ deal not done this week

Arthur Blank will be ‘surprised and disappointed’ if Julio Jones’ deal not done this week

Tim Fuller-USA TODAY Sports You may be panicking about Atlanta’s star receiver, but the Falcons’ owner is optimistic a deal gets done this week. We’re less than a week from the first game of the 2019 season, and Falcons star wideout Julio Jones is still waiting on his new deal. Falcons owner Arthur Blank is expecting that to change in the very near future. Blank told The Athletic that the team and Julio are “very, very close” to a new deal and that he’d be “surprised and disappointed if we didn’t get it done this week,” according to Jeff Schultz. Falcons owner...

Worrying about Blair Walsh’s practice performance is a ‘dangerous subject,’ per Dan Quinn

Worrying about Blair Walsh’s practice performance is a ‘dangerous subject,’ per Dan Quinn

Joe Nicholson-USA TODAY Sports And actually, he’s probably not 100% wrong. Blair Walsh has been in Atlanta for just a few days, and fans have been freaking out about him since the moment he signed. But not in a good way. Tuesday’s practice didn’t help matters. Media members in attendance, myself included, tallied Walsh at five for nine during the open portion of practice. After practice, Dan Quinn cautioned us to not read too much into that. “I’d be careful looking into that. I think that’s a dangerous subject to go through … so I’ll go back and look through, but I...
