Falcons' John Cominsky: Taken off reserve/COVID-19 list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cominsky (illness) was activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list Friday, Jason Butt of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Cominsky has been cleared again after spending two weeks on the reserve/COVID-19 list. The Falcons already played their Week 8 game Thursday, but Cominsky should be able to practice next week and rejoin his teammates on the field in Week 9 against Denver.

Falcons' John Cominsky: Lands on COVID list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Falcons placed Cominsky on the reserve/COVID-19 list Saturday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Cominsky was listed as questionable Friday with what was apparently a non-COVID illness, but it appears he may have contracted the virus or come in close contact with someone infected. The 24-year-old defensive tackle will need to clear the league's COVID-19 protocols before returning to team activities. Chris Slayton and Deadrin Senat are both expected to log increased workloads until Cominsky returns.

Falcons' John Cominsky: Questionable heading into Week 6
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cominsky (illness) is listed as questionable with Atlanta entering its Week 6 matchup against the Vikings, Jason Butt of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

The 24-year-old defensive lineman is dealing with a non-COVID-related illness as the 0-5 Falcons lumber into U.S. Bank Stadium to face Minnesota's 15th-ranked scoring offense. Cominsky has contributed little in the pass-rush department since entering the league in 2019, collecting three QB hits and half a sack over 15 appearances. He does, however, have a tackle for loss in consecutive outings coming into Week 6. Whether Cominsky is afforded an opportunity to extend that streak may come down to a game-time decision.

Falcons' John Cominsky: Commended by star teammate
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grady Jarrett says he has been "really, really impressed" with Cominsky in training camp, William McFadden of the Falcons' official site reports.

Jarrett expanded by stating that he has "100-percent confidence" in the second-year man out of Division-II Charleston (WV), and that "it's night and day" regarding the improvements Cominsky has made to his game since wrapping up his first professional season in late December. Cominsky fielded a mere 10 percent of the defensive snaps during 2019, but based on the fact that both his Pro Bowl teammate and his head coach have noticed serious strides in his skill set, it's likely his 2020 workload will be an increase from last year.

Falcons' John Cominsky: More playing time coming in 2020
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Dan Quinn said he expects Cominsky's role to increase during the upcoming season, D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

The Falcons were able to bring aboard Dante Fowler to a three-year deal during free agency, but the team is dealing with a flurry of departures elsewhere along the defensive line. Between Vic Beasley, Adrian Clayborn and Jack Crawford leaving in free agency, Atlanta must replace 1,656 defensive snaps. The 24-year-old Cominsky collected 11 tackles, two pass deflections and half a sack across 10 appearances during his rookie year, but he'll likely see an uptick in involvement and production in 2020, so long as Quinn's comments hold true.

Falcons' John Cominsky: Makes 10 appearances as rookie
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cominsky accounted for 11 tackles, two pass deflections, two QB hits and half a sack during his rookie campaign out of Charleston (WV).

The 24-year-old Cominsky earned his way onto the 53-man roster by virtue of a promising preseason display, but he ultimately had just five outings during the regular season with greater than seven defensive snaps. He finished tied for sixth on the team with 12 tackles during the exhibition slate, while logging one sack and a fumble recovery during the preseason opener against Denver. During the regular season, Cominsky missed six games with an ankle injury, but he returned late in the year and played a season-high 54 percent of the snaps during the finale against Tampa Bay. In 2020 the fourth-round draft choice will enter the second term of his four-year deal, striving to transform from reserve-level contributor to more of an integral piece to Atlanta's defensive structure.

Falcons' John Cominsky: All clear Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cominsky (ankle) was not listed with an injury on Monday's practice estimate, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

Cominsky missed Sunday's game against the Buccaneers due to the injury, and as evidenced by this news, he's shaken off the issue. Barring a setback, expect the 2019 fourth-round pick to suit up in Thursday's game against the Saints in his usual depth role across the defensive line.

Falcons' John Cominsky: Ruled out Week 12
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cominsky (ankle) is inactive for the team's Week 12 contest against the Buccaneers.

Cominsky practiced on a limited basis on Thursday and Friday but is set to miss his third consecutive contest. He has played only a depth role along the team's defensive line, so his absence won't have a major impact on Sunday's outcome.

Falcons' John Cominsky: Questionable for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cominsky (ankle) is questionable to play Sunday against the Buccaneers, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.

Cominsky practiced as a limited participant Thursday and Friday to earn the questionable tag. The 24-year-old didn't have an injury designation for last week's game against the Panthers after missing the previous game, but he didn't end up seeing the field.

Falcons' John Cominsky: Trending in the right direction
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cominsky (ankle) practiced on a limited basis Thursday, Jason Butt of The Athletic reports.

The rookie fourth-round pick out of Charleston could not go Wednesday, so the fact that he was able to get in some reps Thursday indicates that he's trending towards retaking the field in the near future. Cominsky has been forced to sit out back-to-back games for the Falcons after dressing for every contest between Weeks 1 and 8. If Cominsky proves healthy enough to play Sunday, he will be facing a Buccaneers offense that so far this season has surrendered the fourth-most sacks per game (3.6), while also leading the NFL with 25 giveaways.

Falcons' John Cominsky: Unable to practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cominsky (ankle) did not participate during Wednesday's practice session, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

The rookie defensive end has been forced to miss Atlanta's past two games against the Saints and Panthers, and early indications are not promising for his Week 12 status. Cominsky carries a questionable designation and still has an opportunity to get on the practice field Thursday or Friday, but he will have to show he can shed blocks and run on his injured ankle before the coaching staff puts him in the lineup for a matchup against the Buccaneers' sixth-ranked scoring offense. He was clear of an injury designation heading into last Sunday's game against the Panthers, but very likely showed warning signs that he was not totally healthy during warmups, as he did not field a single special teams or defensive snap during the contest.

Falcons' John Cominsky: Set to face Panthers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cominsky (ankle) does not carry an injury tag for Sunday's tilt against the Panthers, D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Cominsky practiced in a limited capacity Friday, and he appears to have fully recovered from the ankle sprain that sidelined him Week 10. Expect the rookie fourth-round pick to play his usual reserve role along Atlanta's defensive line versus the Panthers on Sunday.

Falcons' John Cominsky: Won't play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cominsky (ankle) was ruled out for Sunday's game at New Orleans, Jason Butt of The Athletic reports.

Cominsky suffered an ankle sprain Week 8 and needs additional time to recover coming out of the bye week. The 23-year-old has played double-digit defensive snaps only three times this season, so Atlanta's defense is unlikely to be significantly impacted by his absence.

Falcons' John Cominsky: Sits out Monday's session
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cominsky (ankle) was unable to go for Monday's practice, D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

The rookie defensive end suffered a sprained ankle during Atlanta's Week 8 loss to Seattle, and his status for Sunday's matchup against New Orleans' 15th-ranked scoring offense remains undetermined. Cominsky is yet to earn his first career regular-season start and has only played on more than 15 defensive snaps once, but he remains an interesting developmental backup after amassing 12 tackles and a sack during the preseason.

Falcons' John Cominsky: Dealing with ankle sprain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cominsky suffered an ankle sprain during Sunday's loss to the Seahawks, William McFadden of the Falcons' official site reports.

The good news for Cominsky is that the Falcons have a bye next week, and coach Dan Quinn said he's "hopeful" the rookie defensive lineman will be able to play in Week 10 at New Orleans. The 23-year-old has six tackles (two solo) while serving in a rotational role through his first eight games.

Falcons' John Cominsky: Done for day
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cominsky (ankle) won't return to Sunday's game against Seattle, Wendy Adams of the Falcons Radio Network reports.

Cominsky suffered the injury late in the first quarter and, as evidenced by this news, seems to be dealing with a serious-enough injury to force him to miss time. Allen Bailey and Adrian Clayborn will continue to receive the depth snaps at defensive end.

Falcons' John Cominsky: Gets hurt Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cominsky (ankle) is questionable to return to Sunday's game against Seattle, William McFadden of the Falcons' official site reports.

It's unclear how Cominsky picked up the injury, but he was forced to exit the contest late in the first quarter. As long as he's sidelined, Allen Bailey and Adrian Clayborn are still in line to receive the depth snaps at defensive end.
