FLOWRY BRANCH, Ga. – Inside linebacker Nate Landman (knee), right tackle Caleb McGary (knee), and defensemen David Onyemata (ankle) and LaCalle London (knee) have been ruled out for the Falcons’ pivotal divisional game versus the Tampa Bay Buccaneers this Sunday.
Landman, McGary and Onyemata did not participate in practice all week. All three suffered injuries in the Falcons’ Week 13 game last Sunday at MetLife Stadium. London was listed as a full participant in each session after the defensive end was designated to return from injured reserve earlier in the week.
Meanwhile, there were five Falcons players listed as questionable on Sunday.
Cornerbacks AJ Terrell (concussion), Jeff Okudah (ankle) and Mike Hughes (hand) are questionable. Tyrrell was a full participant on Friday after only practicing as a limited participant in a yellow non-contact jersey earlier in the week. He has been working through the league’s concussion protocol after leaving Sunday’s game with a concussion. Arthur Smith said the Falcons will make a decision on Terrell after speaking with medical specialists on Saturday.
Okudah returned to practice on Friday as a limited participant. Hughes was inactive for the Falcons’ last game due to injury, but was a full participant all week.
Wide receiver Mack Hollins (ankle) and center Drew Dalman (ankle) were also questionable. Hollins missed Atlanta’s last three games due to his injury, but he participated fully in training throughout the week. Dallman was limited Thursday and Friday.
