While it's only the first practice of the week the Atlanta Falcons are hurting... badly. We've already heard about Julio Jones missing Sunday's game, but there's also a possibility the Falcons could be without their starting TE, C, RG, DE and SS with their nickel back also hurting. Yes, it's that bad for Atlanta.
Meanwhile for Carolina the situation is far less severe.
We knew about Gaither, and Otah is missing his typical Wednesday practice due to tightness. After the jump we'll see the beleaguered Falcons.
Pretty crazy list, right? If only some of these key players miss Sunday's game it could be a very long day for the Falcons. This game might have just gotten a lot easier.
