Falcons and Cardinals dealing with slew of injuries

As the Falcons prepare to travel west to take on the Cardinals, both clubs are dealing with a myriad of injuries. However, Atlanta and Arizona both welcomed back stars. Kyler Murray and Drake London returned to practice, but the clubs are still monitoring a ton of players ahead of Sunday’s tilt.

London missed the Falcons Week 9 contest due to that groin injury, so it is a great sign that he practiced on Thursday without limitations. Having London should benefit Taylor Heinicke, who is making his second start in a row. Moreover, a trio of others (DeMarcco Hellams, Dee Alford, and David Onyemata) are seemingly trending in the right direction, upgraded to limited participants.

For the Cardinals, the worry is along the offensive line. Will Hernandez and D.J. Humphries didn’t practice, and Carter O’Donnell was a limited participant. That’s two starters and a backup that could potentially miss Sunday’s contest. For a Falcons defense that has struggled to consistently apply pressure without Grady Jarrett, this could be just what the doctor ordered.
