Laundry list of Falcons miss practice ahead of Buccaneers tilt

NFL: OCT 15 Commanders at Falcons

The Falcons have held the health advantage over their opponents more often than not, but that might not be the case in Week 13 against the Buccaneers.

Arthur Smith told reporters that four starters — center Drew Dalman, defensive tackle David Onyemata, right tackle Kaleb McGary, and linebacker Nate Landman — would be held out of practice Wednesday afternoon due to various injuries.

We don’t quite know the extent of the Dalman and Onyemata injuries as they are undisclosed, but Landman and McGary are nursing knee injuries. It’s not all bad news on the injury front, though.

Jeff Okudah participated in Wednesday’s practice, and A.J. Terrell practiced in a limited capacity going through concussion protocol, but the others are trending in the right direction it seems.

“For the most part, we’re in pretty good shape,” Smith said.

The Falcons had a number of backups step up last Sunday. Storm Norton, Andre Smith, and Clark Phillips performed admirably in their predecessor’s absences, but there’s no arguing the starters’ value.

These injuries could really hurt Atlanta’s chances against Tampa this weekend.
