OL - ATL
This Week Outlook
NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is reporting Falcons OL Jake Matthews (knee) is expected to play in Week 2.
While Matthews missed practice earlier in the week with a knee injury, he should be fine to play in Sunday's road encounter at Dallas. Considering the revamped Cowboys pass-rush, the Falcons will need all hands on deck to keep Matt Ryan upright and attempt to get Todd Gurley going on the ground with more efficiency. If Matthews ultimately sits, expect Matt Gono or John Wetzel to draw the Week 2 start.
Atlanta Falcons left tackle Jake Matthews missed Wednesday's practice with a knee injury.
Matthews has a history of knee issues, so a missed practice is concerning, even on a Wednesday. If he ends up missing time, the Falcons entire offense will take a slight value hit.
Jake Matthews is suffering from a sprained left knee injury which could be a big problem for Atlanta offense.
Matthews and the rest of the Falcons offensive line have played very well this season and this is a big red flag for the Falcons offense. If Matthews misses time then it could impact the entire offense, especially Matt Ryan.
