Falcons' Mohamed Sanu: Could practice Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanu, who injured his groin Sunday against the Chiefs, could practice Thursday, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports.

Sanu finished with two catches for 26 yards in Sunday's contest, and although he joined teammate Julio Jones (toe) in surfacing with an injury, his ailment might not cause him to miss any action. While that would obviously bode well for the Falcons' pass-catching options, Sanu's involvement in practice this week will still need to be monitored before shaping expectations of him for this Sunday's game versus the Rams.

Falcons' Julio Jones: Dealing with turf toe
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones suffered a turf toe injury during Sunday's loss to the Chiefs, but Falcons coach Dan Quinn said the ailment doesn't appear serious, ESPN's Vaughn McClure reports.

Jones downplayed the issue following Sunday's contest, describing it as just another nagging injury that he'll play through, but this news is hardly what Jones' fantasy owners would've wanted heading into their playoffs. Despite missing some plays late in Sunday's game, Jones still finished with seven catches for 113 yards on his nine targets. Although he intends to play through any discomfort, Jones' practice participation should bare monitoring this week as the Falcons prepare to take on the Rams this Sunday.

Falcons' Tevin Coleman: Double-digit carries in loss to Chiefs
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Coleman ran 12 times for 49 yards in Sunday's 29-28 loss to the Chiefs.

Coleman averaged a miserable 1.1 yards per carry in his return to the field last week, but he managed a much more respectable performance this time around as he equaled his season high in attempts. Devonta Freeman touched the ball 19 times in this one, including a pair of one-yard scores, so he clearly seems to have the edge in this timeshare of sorts. That said, there is room for Coleman to produce in Atlanta's fast-paced offense, and he should be in line for a similar workload next week against the Rams, who have proven susceptible to strong rushing attacks this year.

Falcons' Devonta Freeman: Two touchdowns in loss to Chiefs
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Freeman carried 15 times for 56 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 29-28 loss to the Chiefs. He also caught four of five targets for an additional 49 yards.

Freeman opened the scoring with a one-yard plunge in the first quarter and repeated the feat in the fourth for his second consecutive two-touchdown performance. He was held to 3.7 yards per carry but was able to produce his second-best receiving yardage output of the season to top 100 scrimmage yards for the fifth time. Freeman should remain a solid fantasy play next week when the Falcons travel to take on a Rams team that has been susceptible to strong running back play this season.

Falcons' Matt Ryan: Throws decisive pick-two in loss to Chiefs
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Ryan completed 22 of 34 passes for 297 yards and a touchdown with one interception in Sunday's game against the Chiefs. He also added 23 yards on three carries in the 29-28 loss.

Although he was held down for much of the day, Ryan put his team in a position to win the game when his only touchdown pass came late in the fourth quarter. Unfortunately, the Falcons elected to go for two after the score, and Ryan's pass attempt was intercepted by Eric Berry, who ran it all the way back for a pick-two that ultimately decided the outcome of the game. Ryan has now been held to less than 300 yards passing in five of his last six games and has just four touchdowns compared to three interceptions over the last three. He will look to bounce back next week against the Rams.
