Kaleb McGary returns to individual drills after heart procedure

Report: Kaleb McGary to go through ‘full rehab’ process, timeline for return not certain

Kaleb McGary’s most recent cardiac ablation procedure evidently went well, which is great news for the rookie and likely a major relief to his friends, family, and the team. The obvious question from the Falcons’ perspective is when their...

Falcoholinks: All the Falcons news you need for Monday, Aug. 19

Eleven straight preseason losses—that’s pretty impressive! The Falcons won’t be winning the preseason Super Bowl anytime soon, but we did learn a few things from their 22-10 loss to the Jets. Read on for Monday morning’s edition of Falcoholinks. Preseason...

Matt Ryan thrives under pressure, but that doesn’t mean he should have to

Matt Ryan has become a diamond. The man shines under pressure. That was true last year, when he recorded one of the highest passer ratings in football under pressure. It was true in this last preseason game, when Ryan did...

Russell Gage, Kendall Sheffield injuries don’t appear to be long-term concerns

The Falcons suffered three injuries on Thursday night that we knew about and a few others that were made evident just recently, such as the Ty Sambrailo shoulder injury. We had heard that the injury to Damontae Kazee was...

Ty Sambrailo injured, Matt Gono may start at RT Thursday night

Ty Sambrailo had a difficult effort against the Jets on Thursday night. You can argue that he mostly played fine and only had a handful of difficult plays, which would be fairly accurate, but on his worst plays he...

Dirk Koetter talks wide receiver battles, Kaleb McGary, and more on the Mike Tice...

Fans typically do not hear from coordinators. They may hop in front of the media a few times per year to give some general, uninteresting answers. So when Dirk Koetter joined former Falcons offensive line coach Mike Tice on...

Falcons’ Dan Quinn mics up his defense to fix communication issues

Falcons head coach Dan Quinn is not a perfect coach. Ask any Falcons fan to list off his issues and you could get a very depressing list. I don’t want to rehash that here, because this recent article from...

Updating the Falcons offensive roster battles

Backup quarterback Original Competition: Matt Schaub, Kurt Benkert Current Competition: Matt Schaub, Matt Simms, Danny Etling Schaub locked this up the moment that Kurt Benkert was lost for the year with a toe injury, but he’s more than salted it away by...

3 Falcons up, 3 Falcons down in preseason Week 2 loss to the Jets

Which young Falcons deserve a longer look Thursday against Washington?

Another week, another list of young players who either excelled or need to excel, and deserve the shot to do so. Let’s get at this one ahead of the team’s game against perhaps the most dysfunctional franchise in football....

Which Falcons running back could be traded or cut before the 2019 season?

The Falcons have a problem at running back. It’s the kind of problem every NFL team wishes they had, but alas, here we are. The team has five truly viable options and — realistically — only four spots available...

Jaeden Graham made his case for the Falcons TE3 job against the Jets

The Falcons feel like they know what they have in most of their tight ends. They’ve had seasons to evaluate Austin Hooper, who looks ready to break out even further in his fourth season. Luke Stocker is a steady...

3 quick, hot takes from a meaningless Falcons-Jets preseason game

Even in a dispiriting 11th straight preseason loss—which in true hot take fashion I ought to be treating as an emergency, but who has the energy after a night like that—there were lessons to be learned. Some of those...

Falcons – Jets recap: Ugly times and injuries on an August Thursday

There’s always at least one Falcons preseason game that turns into an unmitigated disaster, and it was difficult to argue against the notion that it was this one in particular. Too bad we have two to go. The Falcons’ offensive...

Damontae Kazee, Russell Gage avoid broken bones in Jets preseason loss

When Damontae Kazee exited tonight’s game, it looked like he’d suffered the kind of injury that might knock him out over the short-term. When Russell Gage went out, The Falcohlic staff was chattering that it might cost him a...

Kendall Sheffield ruled out with hamstring injury

Bad news for one of the Falcons’ most exciting rookies. Kendall Sheffield, the team’s fourth-round selection out of Ohio University, started to limp heavily after a full-speed run down the sideline. Hamstring, ruled out, per team— Justin Felder (@Justin_FOX5) August...

Damontae Kazee questionable to return with rib injury

Damontae Kazee promises to be an essential piece of the Falcons’ defense this year, just as he was in 2018. The only big differences are that he’s playing cornerback instead of safety, and he’s currently hurt instead of healthy....

Falcons – Jets preseason Week 2 key info, updates, and live thread

The Falcons will play the Jets in a half hour, and we may actually catch a glimpse of a few starters this time around. Atlanta wisely sat most of its starters—certainly most of the key ones—against the Broncos and Dolphins....
