As of Saturday, two Falcons players have already been ruled out through injury for tomorrow’s game. Those being DT Corey Peters and C Todd McClure.
Losing Peters is a blow especially in run defense, but look for former first round pick DT Peria Jerry to step in and add some pass rush from the inside in Peters’ absence. McClure is a significant loss as he is viewed as the leader of the Falcons O-Line. In his absence, C Joe Hawley must step up and fill some big shoes and anchor down the Falcons line against forces such as Bears DE Julius Peppers.
The Bears so far have only announced that RB Marion Barber will not play, which should impact their effectiveness in goal line situations and put more of an onus on disgruntled Matt Forte to perform.
Will report when any more injury news appears.
