Falcons fully healthy while Texans hobbled heading into Week 5


In every single game thus far, the Falcons have held the health advantage. Atlanta’s only significant injuries have been Avery Williams and Troy Andersen. Williams’ absence can be felt in the team’s starting field position, but Nate Landman has seamlessly stepped into the starting lineup. Heading into Week 5, it seems the Falcons will once again have that edge over the Texans, who are coming into the contest hobbled.

The Texans have been severely shorthanded all season long, including last week against the Steelers when they were missing three of five offensive line starters, but that hasn’t stopped DeMeco Ryans‘ team.

Houston is one of the biggest surprises of the NFL season thus far. C.J. Stroud is playing like a top quarterback in this league, despite not having the best supporting cast. They could be down multiple starters as well. Laremy Tunsil, arguably the top tackle in football, was a limited participant.

Maliek Collins, one of the top interior defenders in this league, is also in danger of missing Sunday’s contest. A lot can happen between now and Sunday, so we will update you throughout the week as the Falcons and Texans contest approaches.
