Four Browns defenders who were questionable for today's game against the Cardinals are active. DE Myles Garrett (knee, ankle), DE Jadeveon Clowney (elbow, knee), CB Denzel Ward (neck) and CB Greg Newsome (calf) are ready to go. DE Takk McKinley (ankle, knee) is also playing through a questionable tag.

The Falcons have ruled starting DEs Dante Fowler and Takk McKinley out for Sunday's game against the Broncos. Losing both DEs would be a big deal for most defenses, but McKinley has only played in 4 games so far, and Fowler has offered disappointing production most of the year. So it doesn't change the outlook for a team defense in an upside matchup. Allen Bailey and Steven Means look like the fill-in starters.

Falcons DE Dante Fowler (ankle) is active for today’s game against the Bears. He missed practice all week, though, and looks like a poor IDP option. DE Takk McKinley (groin) and LB Foye Oluokun are inactive.

Falcons DE Dante Fowler (ankle) and DE Takk McKinley (groin) are questionable for Sunday's game against the Bears. McKinley missed practice all week and looks like a bad bet to play. Fowler missed the first 2 days before returning for a limited Friday. Neither should be in your IDP lineups, if you can help it. Elsewhere on the Atlanta defense, S Ricardo Allen (elbow) is out and LB Foye Oluokun (hamstring) is questionable. Oluokun missed Wednesday's practice but returned for limited workouts the past 2 days. There's upside to him in deeper IDP leagues, but obvious re-injury risk with the hamstring.

Falcons DE Takk McKinley (shoulder) is active for today's game against the Buccaneers. It's an upside sack matchup, but McKinley has just 1.5 sacks for the season and made it through just 35% of the snaps last week. He's not worth the gamble for most IDP owners.

The Falcons have ruled DE Takk McKinley out for Sunday's game against the Saints because of a groin injury. We'll see about his status for Week 4. McKinley didn't make for a strong IDP option in this matchup anyway.

Falcons DE Takk McKinley suffered a groin injury in Sunday's win over the Panthers. According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, McKinley is considered "day-to-day" and looks questionable for Week 3. But the injury is not expected to impact him long term. The 2017 first-round pick has delivered a sack in each game so far.

The Falcons traded up from 31st overall to 26th to draft edge rusher Takkarist McKinley. We'll see whether the Atlanta scheme sets him up at DE or OLB. McKinley overcame injuries to rack up 10 sacks and 18 total tackles for loss in his final season at UCLA. He should pair with Vic Beasley to beef up the Falcons pass rush in a defense with plenty of fantasy football upside.
