Falcons Inactives vs Aints

Falcons inactives: Two Falcons rookies listed as inactive ahead of Week 1 showdown with New Orleans Saints

Drake London, Darren Hall to play on Sunday. Ted Monachino to not coach vs. Saints as he deals with a personal matter. 
 

The Falcons announced prior to Sunday's home opener against the Saints that Drake London will play in his Falcons regular season debut after working through a knee injury during the preseason.

London was injured during the Falcons first preseason game against Detroit and did not return to the field until practice began this week. Though he was limited throughout the practice in the week ahead of the Saints showdown and listed as questionable on Friday, the rookie receiver was not listed as inactive before kickoff indicating he's good to go.

Darren Hall will also be up and active on Sunday after working through a quad injury this week. Like London, the cornerback was listed as questionable on Friday but will be available against the Saints on Sunday.

With London active, the Falcons announced that fellow wide receiver Damiere Byrd would be inactive

In other inactive news, two rookies from the Falcons 2022 draft class will be inactive on Sunday, and unlike London they will not make their official Falcons debut yet. The Falcons named Tyler Allgeier and DeAngelo Malone as inactive for Week 1.

It was an interesting development for Allgeier - specifically - as the running back had a significant work load during the preseason. However, that work load was always a bit misleading as the Falcons made sure to hold back Cordarrelle Patterson and Damien Williams' reps. The expectation was that these two would get the majority of the work in the run game come the regular season.

It should also be noted that Avery Williams is a running back on this roster. His primary role is in special teams as the return man, but with Allgeier inactive, Williams slides into that third running back role.

The Falcons also announced on Sunday that outside linebackers coach Ted Monachino will not be coaching on Sunday due to a personal matter. His role will be filled by defensive assistant Lanier Goethie.

Here is the full list of the Falcons inactives as they host the Saints on Sunday:

WR Damiere Byrd

RB Tyler Allgeier

OLB DeAngelo Malone

ILB Nick Kwiatkoski

OL Chuma Edoga

I honestly didn’t see much from Malone over preseason, but allgier is still weird to me 

It's gameplan related too, whatever that gameplan is. Carrying four TEs if you include Franks. And extra DBs too so somebody we didn't agree with had to be inactive. To me, Franks being active is more interesting to me than Allgeier and Malone being inactive. 

We actually have some decent depth this year so I think there's gonna be surprises every week.

I never understood why there was a rule for game day inactives. 53 is already a cut down enough roster

Yeah not a big fan of that either myself. Don't think AS is either because he has said tough decisions get made every week on who sits on game days.

So no Allgeier, Malone or Anderson?? Interesting I hope Damien Williams looks good today then.
