Roddy White may miss Week 7
Wednesday, October 9, 2013, 11:09am
With Julio Jones fully expected to be out a while, the Falcons desperately need White to play. If he is out, Harry Douglas will be the most experienced WR on the field for Atlanta, with Drew Davis and Kevin Cone both seeing big increases in playing time. Matt Ryan's stock has taken a big hit, but expect Tony Gonzalez to see more targets than ever.
Report: Falcons fear Julio Jones out for season
Tuesday, October 8, 2013, 1:44pm
The latest reports say Jones broke the screw that was put in his foot in his 2011 surgery, which obviously doesn't sound good. But, the good news for the Falcons is they have a Week 6 BYE to get Roddy White and Steven Jackson healthy. If Julio is indeed lost for the season, this would obviously be a huge blow to Matt Ryan and the entire offense. When Jones missed time in 2011, Harry Douglas saw an increase in snaps (from an average of 33 to 51), but the Falcons may elect to use Drew Davis and Kevin Cone and keep Douglas in the slot. Expect Ryan to lean even more heavily on veteran TE Tony Gonzalez and the run game, so this could be a good thing for Steven Jackson, if he can stay healthy. For now, Douglas looks like the best pickup in the Atlanta receiving corps.
