Our injuries don't seem as bad compared to whats happening to the Saints Panthers and Falcons. Let's hope our guys can keep themselves from watching from the sidelines

per rotoworld

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Falcons receiver/returner Harry Douglas suffered a torn ACL in Wednesday's practice.
Douglas, the No. 84 overall pick in 2008, quickly emerged as an inside threat on offense last year, racking up 23 catches in the slot position. He was also the Falcons' go-to guy on punt returns. Tony Gonzalez and Michael Jenkins will be leaned on more heavily now, while Roddy White will continue to hold out. GM Thomas Dimitroff suddenly regrets ever trading Laurent Robinson.

Douglas is also their best special teams man. Big time blow to Atlanta offense douglas was practicing with the first team since White is holding out.

I will not rejoice in any team's injuries.... they're too easy to come by.

 I thought Lovie said he wanted quickness & speed, even at the QB position?

We'll get ours at some point so I've got no joy in this.

All posts are opinions in case you are too stupid to figure that out on your own without me saying it over and over.

This means as of right now Michael Jenkins is the #1 WR lol.

I feel bad for any team that loses one of their boys, but If it helps our chances I can't really complain.

We are all even in that respect imo.

As much as I hate the Falcons, I actually enjoyed watching Douglas play, he is an exciting player. Hopefully its not too severe and he makes it back on the field late in the regular season.

He wasn't THAT much of a factor in the game when we played them. He's a threat though because of his speed but I'm more worried about White and Gonzalez. Jenkins is the red zone situational threat but we play the Falgoons tough so I'm expecting a sweep this year.

We've had to deal with the hardships of Caddilac for the past 5 years. Nobody from the NFC South has had a more injured first round top 5 pick other then Tampa. Hopefully we can have a healthy camp and not have another "Davin Joseph" injury *knock on wood*

I've never been the type to be happy about another team's injury.   I've also never been one to complain and say I'd rather play them at full strength.    A win is a win and sometimes their injuries help you get your wins.
