A.J. Terrell could miss his third straight game with a hamstring injury after missing practice Tuesday ahead of Thursday’s tilt against the Panthers. The All-Pro corner seems to be trending in that direction, which isn’t great news for the Falcons secondary.
P.J. Walker brutalized Atlanta’s secondary without Terrell, Casey Hayward, and Jalyinn Hawkins. Against the Chargers, the unit played a little better. Darren Hall started his second straight game across from Cornell Armstrong for much of the afternoon.
If A.J. Terrell ends up missing this game, which it seems like he will, the Falcons will have to hope he’s healthy enough to go in Week 11 because they could’ve just placed him on the injured reserve if he misses a fourth game. Speaking of the IR, several other players have gone down with significant injuries.
Atlanta recently placed Elijah Wilkinson on the injured reserve as he deals with a knee injury, and Matt Hennessy got the nod at left guard against the Chargers Sunday. Unfortunately, the team ruled him out for Thursday’s contest against Carolina, placing him on the IR too.
