Falcons-Saints post-game injury report: Ricardo

Allen knocked
out the game with “calf injury” The Atlanta Falcons played their butts off
today. Sadly the defense gave up too many points and the end result was highly
disappointing. There’s a lot to digest after a loss like that. We’ll take a look
at what went wrong in the days ahead.Rookie Russell Gage hurt his knee during
the first half. Gage was getting some snaps with the offense today http://www.atlantafalconsteamonline.com/julio-jones-jersey ,
for what that’s worth. Justin Bethel also suffered a knee injury on special
teams. Foye Oluokun injured his ankle during the second half. He earned a
questionable designation. Foye was playing some solid football when he got hurt.
Ricardo Allen injured his calf late in the fourth quarter. He was carted off the
field as the Falcons fanbase looked on in horror. Early reports about his status
aren’t super encouraging. Dan Quinn called the injury “serious enough.” This has
many wondering whether this was an achilles injury, which would be a true worst
case scenario for the Falcons. (If he tore his achilles, he will need
season-ending surgery.) Best case scenario, it’s a bad calf strain and the
Falcons figure out how to play without him for a couple of weeks. But if his
immediate reaction on the field and while he was being carted off are any
indication, this was more serious than that. Your thoughts?It’s not always sunny
in Philadelphia: Falcons vs. Eagles may have downpours, lightning You know game
time is close when we start looking at weather Matt Ryan Jersey

 , and oh man is game time close. We are mere hours away
from kicking off another season. So why not start it off with some rain.We
aren’t meteorologists at the Falcoholic. In fact, none of us even finished high
school, but we can definitely read the weather forecast. There’s an over 40
percent chance of rain right around kickoff, with that number dropping off
farther into the game. That feels very unofficial, so here’s word from a real
meteorologist, Alex Sosnowski from Accuweather. If there’s lightning http://www.atlantafalconsteamonline.com/matt-ryan-jersey ,
the game will certainly be delayed. Nothing like starting out the season with a
game delay. Announcers usually run out of anything interesting to say at least
two hours before kickoff, so make sure you have enough booze to get through
it.If Philadelphia is on the receiving end of a downpour, it should tilt the
game a bit towards the Eagles. Preseason suggests Nick Foles has returned to
being Nick Foles, and the team is both short Alshon Jeffery and his backup. The
expectation was the Eagles would play conservative, we’d see multiple tight end
sets, and Jay Ajayi frequently. The rain would limit passing for both
teams Calvin

update with any new weather, but lets hope any rain is short lived.
