Injury Report - who could be out vs. Minnesota?


Recommended Posts

With playing time in preseason games so random and usually left to the lower depth chart, do we have any injuries going into week 1 that we need to worry about?

Russell Gage - hip - any word on whether he will be 100% or still possibly suffering?

Damontae Kazee - ribs - is our turnover specialist and nickel going to be ready for Cousins?

Kendall Sheffield - hamstring - what is his status and could we live without him if needed?

Foye Oluokun - oblique - made a tackle in the Jacksonville game, but really did not play much in preseason-still OK? 

James Carpenter - hip - appeared to play OK next to last preseason game but is he the starter?

Ty Sambrailo - shoulder - rumors were he was back at practice a week ago, but does that mean he is starting?

Kaleb McGary - heart - obviously full strength against Jags but against their bottom levels, but is he ready to start yet?

Kenjon Barner - ? - was the guy essentially injured all but the first 2 games of preseason? still ready for returns?

Ricky Ortiz - ankle - if they kept him on the roster, his injury would logically be minimal?

Anybody else?


There are also the long term, but hopefully resolved injuries for Ricardo Allen (achilles), Keanu Neal (ACL), Deion Jones (foot) and Devonta Freeman (head, etc.).  However, we saw so few appearances of these guys in preseason, that it is really hard to say they will be 100%.


I also did not include Kurt Benkert who is not even a thought for 2019 


Overall, our first injury report of 2019 later this week appears that it will be minimal.  However, does anybody suspect there could be a surprise starter missing or somebody the Falcons might be hiding?

So what's the deal with Debo? Were we just resting him and being cautious or was he not quite ready to go? I can recall seeing Julio doing individual drills and things of that nature but I don't recall seeing or hearing about Debo doing anything

From last week
