Falcons' Brandon Fusco: In line for starting role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fusco is the favorite to be named Atlanta's starting right guard for the start of the regular season, Kelsey Conway of the Falcons' official site reports.

Fusco was the first man up at right guard in Atlanta's game against Kansas City on Friday, after Wes Schweitzer got the nod in the preseason opener against the Jets last week. While head coach didn't go so far as to outright declare Fusco as the starter for the season, he did say that the seven-year veteran "earned the right to be the starter again" for the Falcons' upcoming preseason tilt against the Jaguars.

Falcons' Foyesade Oluokun: Logs 31 total snaps Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oluokun (toe) logged one tackle in 31 total snaps during Friday's preseason loss to the Chiefs.

Oluokun was on the field for 22 of the Falcons' defensive snaps, so he doesn't appear to currently be bothered by health issues. He'll continue to provide starters De'Vondre Campbell and Duke Riley with depth at outside linebacker.

Falcons' Andy Levitre: Returns to preseason action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Levitre (triceps) played 14 offensive snaps during the Falcons' preseason loss to the Chiefs on Friday.

Levitre was on the field for 25 percent of Atlanta's offensive snaps Friday, as the triceps injury that forced his 2017 campaign to end prematurely appears to fully healed at this point. The 32-year-old is slated to once again start at left guard in 2018.

Falcons' Deion Jones: Held out of Friday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Head coach Dan Quinn announced Saturday that Jones is considered day-to-day with an undisclosed injury, Kelsey Conway of the Falcons' official site reports.

Jones was a surprise scratch from Atlanta's second preseason game against Kansas City on Friday, as there was no indication coming in that the Pro Bowl linebacker was dealing with an injury. A sudden and mysterious injury designation for the team's best defensive player has fans waiting with bated breath, though the exact ailment and expected recovery time have not yet been disclosed by the Falcons.

Falcons' Isaiah Oliver: Burned for 27-yard score
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oliver recorded zero tackles as he played with the Falcons' second-team defense in a 28-14 loss to the Chiefs on Friday night.

Normally a lights-out defender of the deep ball, Oliver whiffed on a jam at the line of scrimmage as wide out Gehrig Dieter coasted under a Chad Henne pass for an easy third-quarter score. It seems increasingly improbable that Oliver will wrestle the slot corner role from Brian Poole by Week 1, let alone the No. 2 cornerback job from Robert Alford, which seemed possible when the Falcons selected the Colorado product 58th overall.
