Falcons' Dante Fowler: Questionable for Week 12
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fowler (hamstring) is questionable for Sunday's matchup against the Raiders, Jason Butt of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Fowler came off the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday, but he remains beleaguered by the same hamstring injury that kept him inactive Week 9 against the Broncos. He was held out of Friday's practice session entirely, leaving his status up in the air heading into a Sunday matchup against Las Vegas. An appearance would mark Fowler's first since Oct. 29. He has thus far recorded two sacks, six QB hits and one forced fumble in his debut campaign with the Falcons.

Falcons' Dante Fowler: Battling hamstring injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fowler (hamstring) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, Will McFadden of the Falcons' official site reports.

Fowler was activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday after spending 11 days away from the team. However, the 26-year-old is still hampered by the hamstring injury that kept him out for one game prior to his stint on the reserve list. It's an encouraging sign that he practiced in some capacity. He'll look to upgrade to full participation by Friday to avoid a questionable tag ahead of Sunday's game against the Raiders.

Falcons' Dante Fowler: Comes off COVID-19 list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Falcons activated Fowler (hamstring) from the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday, Will McFadden of the team's official site reports.

Fowler spent the Falcons' bye week on the reserve/COVID-19 list, but he's now been cleared of all illness concerns ahead of Sunday's game against the Raiders. Interim coach Raheem Morris said Wednesday that he expects Fowler to "get some work in with trainers" at practice, per McFadden, so it remains to be seen whether the pass rusher is over the hamstring injury that caused him to miss Week 9.

Falcons' Dante Fowler: Moved to reserve/COVID-19 list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fowler (hamstring) was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Saturday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

It's not certain whether Fowler was in close proximity to someone who tested positive for COVID-19 or if he tested positive. It'll be worth monitoring whether any other Falcons players will be placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list, though the team is on bye for Week 10.

Falcons' Dante Fowler: Won't play Week 9
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fowler (hamstring) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Broncos.

The 26-year-old was unable to practice all week and won't be available for Sunday's contest. Fowler will have Atlanta's bye in Week 10 to aid in his recovery before missing additional games. Takkarist McKinley (groin) is also sidelined, leaving Steven Means and Allen Bailey to start at defensive end for the Falcons.

Falcons' Dante Fowler: Picks up hamstring injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fowler (hamstring) didn't practice Wednesday, Will McFadden of the Falcons' official site reports.

This is the first report of a hamstring injury for Fowler, who had previously battled an ankle injury. He's greatly underachieving relative to the large contract he signed with Atlanta this past offseason, with just 17 tackles and two sacks halfway through the season.

Falcons' Dante Fowler: Gets support from coach
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Head coach Raheem Morris says Fowler's low sack total correlates to a lack of production from the pass-rush group as a whole, Kelsey Conway of the Falcons' official site reports.

The interim coach was unwilling to place the blame directly upon Fowler despite Atlanta's defense sitting at sixth worst in the NFL with 1.4 team sacks per game. Fowler was certainly expected to move the needle more than he has, as he's collected just one sack since inking a three-year, $45 million free-agent contract in March. If 2017 first-round pick Takkarist McKinley (groin) is traded at the deadline as has been conjectured about, Fowler may have an even greater burden upon his shoulders within Atlanta's thus far uninspired pass rush.

Falcons' Dante Fowler: Cleared of ankle injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fowler (ankle) isn't on the injury report ahead of Sunday's game against the Lions, William McFadden of the Falcons' official site reports.

Fowler didn't practice Thursday, but he was able to get back out there Friday and should be good to go come game day. He'll look to get his season on track against Detroit, as Fowler has mustered just one sack through six games with the Falcons after racking up 11.5 for the Rams last season.

Falcons' Dante Fowler: Downgraded Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fowler (ankle) was a non-participant during Thursday's practice, Tori McElhaney of The Athletic reports.

Fowler practiced in limited fashion at Wednesday's session after he saw a season-high 80 percent of snaps on defense in last week's win over Minnesota. It's not a great sign that Fowler was downgraded, so if he were to miss Week 7 against the Lions, Steven Means would be in line for the start at defensive end.

Falcons' Dante Fowler: Held back in Wednesday's session
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fowler (ankle) was a limited participant during practice Wednesday, Jason Butt of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Fowler ended up fielding a season-high 80 percent of the defensive snaps Sunday in a win over the Vikings, and that came after he put in a limited week of practice. The 2015 No. 3 overall draft choice was unable to generate a sack for the fourth consecutive game, though he does have four QB hits to his name since Week 3. If Fowler is able to suit up in Week 7, he will oppose a Detroit offensive line that ranks 21st in the NFL with 2.4 sacks surrendered per game.

Falcons' Dante Fowler: Ready for Week 6
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fowler (ankle) does not have an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Vikings.

Fowler, like a number of Falcons defenders, was limited throughout practice all week but looks to be a full-go versus Minnesota. The starting defensive end has gone three straight games without a sack, a streak he'll look to break against Kirk Cousins and the Vikings.

Falcons' Dante Fowler: Back on injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fowler (ankle) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, Will McFadden of the Falcons' official site reports.

Fowler dealt with an ankle injury earlier this season but has still played in every game. It's unclear if this is the same ankle or a new injury altogether, but Fowler's status isn't a major concern as long as he finishes the practice week without a setback.

Falcons' Dante Fowler: Will suit up Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fowler (ankle) has been cleared for Monday's game versus the Packers.

Fowler has been dealing with an ankle injury since training camp, and it's led to inconsistent snap counts thus far. With Takkarist McKinley (groin) already ruled out, Fowler will likely handle a hefty workload in Week 4 along with Allen Bailey, Steven Means and Charles Harris.

Falcons' Dante Fowler: Returns to practice Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fowler (ankle) was a limited participant in Friday's practice, Matt Schneidman of The Athletic reports.

Fowler began the practice week as a non-participant, but that has been typical, and the defensive end hasn't missed a game yet. It's a bit concerning that his snaps dropped off from 70 percent in Week 2 to just 34 percent in Week 3, but at this time he appears on track for Monday's game against the Packers.

Falcons' Dante Fowler: Misses Thursday's practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fowler (ankle) did not practice Thursday, Will McFadden of the team's official site reports.

Fowler was listed as questionable for Sunday's loss to the Bears, but he managed to play through his ankle injury. The starting defensive end was limited to just 34 percent of defensive snaps, though, an indication that he isn't yet close to full health. He'll look to take steps forward in his recovery leading up to Monday's contest in Green Bay.

Falcons' Dante Fowler: Good to go Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fowler (ankle) is active for Sunday's game versus the Bears.

Fowler was limited in practice all week and is healthy enough to play Sunday. The 2015 first-round pick has posted a half sack in each of the first two games, and he'll set his sights on Mitchell Trubisky, who has been dropped five times thus far.

Falcons' Dante Fowler: Listed as questionable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fowler (ankle) was a limited participant in Friday's practice and is questionable for Sunday's game versus the Bears, Will McFadden of the Falcons' official site reports.

Fowler made an appearance on the practice field for the first time Friday, so he'll have a chance to suit up Sunday if his recovery progresses enough. However, if he and Takkarist McKinley (groin) sit out, expect Allen Bailey and Steven Means to start at defensive end.

Falcons' Dante Fowler: Expected to practice Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Dan Quinn said Friday that Fowler (ankle) "will get some work" during the day's practice, William McFadden of the Falcons' official site reports.

Fowler has been held out of back-to-back practices due to his ankle injury. As long as he's able to upgrade to at least limited activity Friday, the starting defensive end could have a shot to suit up versus Chicago on Sunday.

September 23, 2020 06:04 PM
Falcons' Dante Fowler: Can't practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fowler (ankle) is not participating in Wednesday's practice, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

Fowler appears to have still been dealing with his lingering ankle injury during Sunday's loss to the Cowboys, during which he notched two tackles, a half-sack and a forced fumble. The 26-year-old first suffered his sprained ankle Sept. 1, and he hasn't yet been forced to miss time. As long as Fowler is able to avoid any setbacks and resume practicing over the next two days, he'll be in line to draw his usual start at defensive end versus the Bears in Week 3.

Falcons' Dante Fowler: Gets busy in Falcons debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fowler picked up four total tackles, including half a sack and 1.5 tackles for loss, during Sunday's 38-25 loss to Seattle.

The 26-year-old Fowler made an impact in his very first Falcons game, helping Pro Bowler Grady Jarrett to clean up a third-down sack on Russell Wilson during the second quarter. Atlanta generated three sacks and an astronomical 10 QB hits Week 1, a sight for sore eyes considering the Falcons ranked better than only Miami in team sacks during 2019. Fowler and the Atlanta front seven now prepare for a Cowboys offensive line that will be without Cameron Erving (knee-MCL) after giving up three sacks to the Rams on Sunday night.
