Well Authentic Devonta Freeman Jersey , now that we have an idea of who the Atlanta Falcons kept and let go, we have 52 guys who will be on the sidelines each Sunday. Well, as you know, NFL teams have 53 players on the roster. So Atlanta’s one short. The roster, as of now, is stacked to the brim with talent and promise, and not many spots have much breathing room at all. We don’t expect any new faces around these parts: quarterback, running back, wide receiver, tight end, offensive line, defensive tackle, safety, cornerback...oh, and kicker Authentic Julio Jones Jersey , punter, long snapper. Ricky Ortiz should also hang on to that fullback spot.So that basically leaves defensive end and linebacker as the two potentials. With Richard Jarvis making the team, linebacker has six spots and could maybe take another, but if that’s the case, why not keep Celestin? If you’d like to whittle down the options here, that basically means it’s looking like a pass rusher. Now, that doesn’t mean it’s for sure a pass rusher (heck, maybe there’s a random guard somewhere they want to claim), but it feels likely that it’ll be a pass rusher. Gold Rush Could it be one acquired via trade? Unlikely. The Falcons aren’t looking for a starter; just a guy to salt the ice a bit at the spot. Vic Beasley, Takk McKinley and Brooks Reed will all rotate in and out to affect the QB, while Derrick Shelby assist against the run and do a little rushing himself; ditto for Jack Crawford, who’s versatile. The Falcons do need some depth, though, and could afford to rotate a guy in and out to make sure the top guys aren’t getting too much run early in the year. There will be no shortage of names to pop up as the day wears on, but two stick out: Vikings DE Brian Robison and Saints OLB Hau’oli Kikaha. Robison was a surprise cut in Minnesota Authentic Deion Jones Jersey , a stalwart Viking who had about a nine-sack ceiling but would never dip below four a season post-2011 after entering the league in 2007. Minnesota has a bevy of riches in its trenches, which might signal why Robison is now looking for work. He’s also 35 and might be entering the twilight of his career. As a flat-out cut, he’ll be allowed to go wherever he wants, so watch for Robison to eye a contender. He’ll have his suitors. Could one of them be Atlanta? He’d be very sound depth at the spot and could help filter in here and there. If injury hits that spot, you feel better about everything with a guy like Robison in tow. Kikaha was a second-round pick by the Saints in 2015 and has never struggled to flash his talents when healthy. But that’s been the problem, his health. He played his entire rookie season before missing all of 2016 with injury. He also ended 2017 on the IR after a decent campaign. He’ll be subject to the waiver wire, and someone will no doubt want to get him in their system and see what he’s got. Could one of those teams be Atlanta? Maybe he could come into his own with a change of scenery and new training plan. Regardless of where this goes, pass rusher feels like the most likely spot for where the last roster spot goes, unless we’re in for a stash-and-dash claim at a random spot. We’ll see where Sunday takes us here. One season after the NFC South sent three teams to the playoffs, the division may be just as deep.The Atlanta Falcons know they can't afford to fall too far behind in the division as they prepare to play the Carolina Panthers on Sunday. Atlanta made the playoffs at 10-6 in 2017 despite finishing third in the South, behind New Orleans and Carolina.Now, coming off last week's loss at Philadelphia , the Falcons (0-1) need to beat the Panthers to avoid falling two games behind only two weeks into the season.Falcons coach Dan Quinn said the team that wins the NFC South this season "will have been in some fights."For Carolina and Atlanta, this is an early opportunity to establish a pecking order in the division."For us to have a division game ... early in the season, I think it's good for us and good for the division Black Brian Poole Jersey , too," Quinn said.A road win would be another strong statement for Carolina (1-0), which won its opener over Dallas .Each team has lost key starters to injuries.Carolina tight end Greg Olsen and as many as three offensive linemen could be held out. Olsen has a broken bone in his foot for the second straight year , but hopes to return this season and has not been placed on injured reserve.Panthers right tackle Daryl Williams (knee) was placed on IR Wednesday, joining left tackle Matt Kalil (knee), who was put on IR before Week 1. Also, three-time Pro Bowl right guard Trai Turner was placed in the NFL's concussion protocol on Wednesday."We are missing a Pro Bowler on offense," said wide receiver Devin Funchess, referring to Olsen. "We are just here to play our game. Those guys don't make up their whole team and Greg does not make up our whole team. ... I know for sure in our locker room we have the next-man-up mentality."The Falcons placed two key defensive starters , safety Keanu Neal (left knee) and linebacker Deion Jones, on injured reserve this week. Neal will miss the remainder of the season. The team hopes Jones will return , but he must miss at least eight games.Meanwhile, running back Devonta Freeman could be held out with a knee injury. Tevin Coleman would move up to the role of lead back.Here are some things to know about this NFC South showdown:REPLACING OLSENThe Panthers will turn to rookie Ian Thomas at tight end. Thomas is still very raw having only played two seasons of major college football at Indiana.Quarterback Cam Newton said it's impossible to replace Olsen, a three-time 1,000-yard receiver. Newton likes what he's seen from Thomas."He has everything you would want in a premier tight end http://www.authenticsatla...t-alford-jersey ," Newton said. "But he has to believe in himself and know that it starts with understanding the small things make a big difference."TEVIN'S TIMEQuinn prefers having Freeman and Coleman split the carries "because then we can feature the uniqueness of them, the balance of them." But Sunday could be another chance for Coleman to prove he can be more than a backup. He had six starts in his first three seasons."We highly regard Tevin," Quinn said. "We've been down this road if it gets to that, Tevin can certainly handle that."TIGHTEN IT UPMiddle linebacker Luke Kuechly and defensive tackle Kawann Short led Carolina's defense in holding Dallas to 232 yards and eight points last week. Kuechly was all over the field, making 13 tackles. He set the tone with six stops in the first quarter."Luke played out of his mind," defensive coordinator Eric Washington said. "But that's who Luke Kuechly is."Short had two timely sacks. He lines up beside former Falcons defensive tackle Dontari Poe.BAYOU BROTHERHOODIn a handoff from one former Louisiana State player to another, Duke Riley will take over for Jones at inside linebacker. Riley had been starting on the weak side.Rookie Foyesade Oluokun, a sixth-round pick out of Yale, could share time with Kemal Ishmael at weakside linebacker, with De'Vondre Campbell still starting on the strongside.Damontae Kazee will be start at Neal's safety spot.QUICK STUDYThe Panthers' makeshift offensive line could include eight-year NFL veteran tackle Chris Clark , who was signed on Wednesday. Coach Ron Rivera said Clark is "in really good shape right now."AP Sports Writer Steve Reed contributed to this report.
