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.

Falcons' Takkarist McKinley: Making impact as pass rusher
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McKinley is one of a group of four Falcons defenders -- including Grady Jarrett (ankle), Jack Crawford and Vic Beasley -- that has held opponents to four yards per pass play when the quartet shares the field together. That mark would rank first in the NFL, per Pro Football Focus.

Though it's somewhat of a far-reaching stat, it nonetheless illustrates the effectiveness of the Atlanta defensive line when its ideal starters are on the field. Following an electrifying start to the season, McKinley has cooled off over the past two weeks. The second-year man tallied 4.5 sacks and six tackles over his first three appearances of the year, but has no sacks and just two tackles in two games since. McKinley has an opportunity to heat up against the Giants in Week 7 while doing battle with an offensive line that has allowed the fifth-most sacks in the NFL this season.

Falcons' Takkarist McKinley: Returns to practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McKinley (undisclosed) avoided Wednesday's injury report, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

McKinley's absence from the injury report bodes well for his chances of playing in Sunday's game against Tampa Bay. The second-year vet has dealt with some minor injuries through the early portion of the season but has been extremely productive when on the field. Entering Week 5, McKinley led all pass rushers with a sack rate of 6.1 percent.

Falcons' Takkarist McKinley: Questionable to return to Sunday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McKinley is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Steelers with a cramping issue, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

Luckily for McKinley, cramping injuries aren't typically going to keep a player sidelined for too long. Even if McKinley can't get back to the field during Sunday's tilt, it's expected that he'll be ready for next week's practice sessions.
