Falcons' Terron Ward: No go for Week 3
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ward (neck) isn't expected to play Sunday against the Lions, William McFadden of the Falcons' official site reports.

Ward is tending to a pair of neck and shoulder injuries he suffered in practice this week. Look for rookie Brian Hill to operate as the No. 3 RB in his absence.

Schraeder (concussion) has been ruled out for Week 3, ESPN's Vaughn McClure reports.

Schraeder remains under league-mandated concussion protocol. Ty Sambrailo is expected to start in his place Sunday.

Falcons' Vic Beasley: Ruled out for Week 3
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beasley (hamstring) will not play Sunday against the Lions, William McFadden of the Falcons' official site reports.

Beasley is expected to miss about a month after injuring his hamstring in a Week 2 win over the Packers. His absence is a severe blow to the Atlanta pass rush, as Beasley accounted for 46 percent of the team's sacks last season. With Courtney Upshaw (ankle) also sidelined, Detroit's Matthew Stafford should have plenty of time to throw.

Falcons' Terron Ward: Limited participant Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ward sustained neck and shoulder injuries and was a limited participant at practice Thursday, D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

The fact Ward was still a limited participant suggests the injuries aren't overly serious, but his status for Sunday's game against the Lions is unclear. The 25-year-old is mostly a special teams player at this point, and Atlanta's offensive gameplan is unlikely to change much in his absence.

Falcons' Joe Vellano: Inked by Falcons
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vellano signed with the Falcons on Thursday.

With Vic Beasley (hip) and Courtney Upshaw (ankle/knee) both potentially out for multiple weeks, the Falcons signed Vellano to bolster their depth on the defensive front. Vellano will likely serve as a depth option until both players can return to the field.
