What’s good Falcons Fam? Falcons are taking on the Pittsburgh Steelers, and players are still battling for starting jobs and roster spots.
Here’s a few players to keep an eye on.
I’ll start with the running backs since we’re pretty much know Matt Ryan Matt Schaub’s are cemented.
Terron Ward with a strong performance last week against the Miami Dolphins, is expecting to continue his battle with Brian Hill for the 3rd roster spot. Kelvin Taylor, Jhurrel Pressley are expected to see action late in the game.
Marvin Hall a couple of mishaps in his first game against the Miami Dolphins looks to redeem himself, should see a lot of action along with Reggie Davis, Anthony Dable.
Austin Hooper, Levine Toilolo spots are certainly guaranteed. Which leaves Eric Saubert, Josh Perkins, and Dorian Griswold to battle for the last two spots.
Wes Schweitzer will have his opportunity to make an impression on the coaches to see who will win the starting right guard position. Ben Garland got the start last week versus the Miami Dolphins. Newly signed Austin Pasztor is expected to see action as well.
CJ Goodwin, Deji Olatoye, Akeem King, Janor Jones will battle it out for a roster spot…
Highlight of the game is obviously the debut of Falcons 26th overall pick Takkarist McKinley. He was held out of the first preseason game to give him extra time to recoup from off-season surgery.
What are your looking forward to seeing Fam?
Let me know your thoughts….
