  • Updates: The Atlanta Falcons will be down four starters heading into Monday night’s game against the Green Bay Packers with the possibility that star receivers Julio Jones and Calvin Ridley could miss the action as well. Jones and Ridley are both listed as questionable, while defensive end Takk McKinley joins Keanu Neal, Ricardo Allen and Younghoe Koo as the players officially ruled out for Monday night. There is a positive spin to the injury report as well, though, as players like Kaleb McGary, Grady Jarrett and Foye Oluokun look to be in good shape heading into the prime-time matchup. The Falcons will need as many players on the field as possible for this important game.
