It’s looking more and more like Justin Hardy’s NFL debut is coming, and it very well could be made against the Tennessee Titans. Reports of an Eric Weems injury points towards a Hardy debut even more. If Weems is unable to play on Sunday, then Hardy gets the start and will likely get reps as a returner as well.
Hardy made the 53-man roster out of training camp, but has been listed as inactive each of the Falcons’ first six games. He has been waiting for his chance very patiently, but there is no reason why he shouldn’t be an active member of the Falcons’ offense.
It’s time to get him involved in the offense. It’s what he was brought here to do.
