Falcons' Takkarist McKinley: Doing well after mental evaluation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McKinley is spending time with family in California after his friend summoned police Tuesday out of concern for his mental well-being, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

No charges were filed as a result of Tuesday's visit with police, and team spokesman Brian Cearns advised Wednesday that McKinley has been in "constant communication" with the team and seems to be in a "good spot." The root cause of his friend's 911 call remains unclear, but McKinley appears to be recuperating with family in his hometown of Oakland, CA.

Falcons' Takkarist McKinley: Undergoing mental evaluation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McKinley was detained by Los Angeles police on Tuesday after his friend grew concerned for his well being and called 911, D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. It was reported that McKinley cooperated and left with police without being booked for any sort of crime.

McKinley's status remains unclear, as it was reported that he was spending time at a Los Angeles hotel when his friend became concerned and called local police. In a statement released Tuesday, head coach Dan Quinn reflected on the situation by saying, "Any time a situation occurs that (could be) related to mental health issues we take it very seriously. We will do everything we possibly can to support and assist (McKinley) as our players' mental and physical well being are always our top priority."

Falcons' Takkarist McKinley: Picks up sack in Sunday's finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McKinley registered a sack Sunday during the Falcons' 34-32 win over the Buccaneers.

Since entering the league in 2017, McKinley has flown under the radar as one of the NFL's lesser-known pocket disruptors, registering 13 sacks on 1,119 defensive snaps. That translates to one sack every 86.1 plays, an average that rivals rising young pass rushers Myles Garrett (74.6) and Yannick Ngaokoue (71.3). Heading into his third year, McKinley will continue to be a crucial component to a Falcons defense that struggled to get after the quarterback in 2018 with just 37 sacks as a unit.

Falcons' Takkarist McKinley: Formidable defensive showing Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McKinley collected three tackles and half a sack during Sunday's 24-10 win against the Panthers.

McKinley was Taylor Heinicke's worst nightmare Sunday, picking up a season-high four QB hits in addition to his 0.5 sacks. After amassing six sacks as a rookie in 2017 despite playing only 38 percent of the defensive snaps, McKinley is tied with Jack Crawford for second on the team with 6.5 sacks this season. An emerging pass-rushing star in his sophomore campaign, McKinley looks to take advantage of a Buccaneers offensive line that has surrendered the fourth-most QB hits (105) when the Falcons travel to Tampa Bay in Week 17.

Falcons' Takkarist McKinley: Another sack Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McKinley recorded three tackles (two solo) and a sack across 44 defensive snaps in Monday's win over the Giants.

McKinley recorded his first sack since Week 4, bringing his season-total to 5.5. The second-year defensive end continues to apply pressure to opposing teams quarterbacks, something he'll look to continue after the Falcons' bye week.
