Atlanta Falcons News: Are running back injuries cause for concern?


Good morning, Falcons fans. We are now exactly four weeks away from the Atlanta Falcons’ regular season opener against the Philadelphia Eagles on Monday Night Football. There’s plenty of intrigue ahead of these preseason games though. Next up, the New York Jets at MetLife Stadium on Friday night.

Let’s dive into the first Dirty Bird Daily of the week.

Is there concern with the running back injuries? — John Buhler of ATL All Day

"The Atlanta Falcons have had a very positive offseason thus far in the first year of the Dan Quinn Era in Flowery Branch.  However, a recent plethora of hamstring injuries to the running back corps could have the offensive staff worried."

Falcons season may hinge on fortunes of o-line — Dave Choate of The Falcoholic

"Thus far, it has been difficult not to get swept up in the optimism surrounding Falcons training camp. Everyone looks leaner, hungrier and ready to go, and while that only means so much in August, we’re all looking for positive signs."

Dan Quinn facing biggest dilemma — Knox Bardeen of

"When Dan Quinn took over as the head coach of the Atlanta Falcons earlier this year, he must have known there would be exciting times as well as a ton of work on the agenda. There’s always a healthy combination of both in the NFL."
