The Falcons have had brutal luck when it comes to injuries early this season with three guys already hitting the IR. Losing their former first-round pick as well might have been the straw that broke the camel’s back.
Fortunately, it looks like McKinley avoided any type of serious setback.
#Falcons DE Takk McKinley, who injured his groin on Sunday, is considered day-to-day, source said. His status is up in the air for this week, but this is not believed to be a long-term injury.

While the Falcons would love and need him on the field this week against the division-rival Saints, it is a sigh of relief to finally hear some decent injury news.
