Falcons FS Ricardo Allen tore his left Achilles' tendon in Sunday's loss to the Saints and will miss the rest of the season. That leaves Atlanta's defense without both of its starting safeties, after SS Keanu Neal suffered an ACL tear in Week 1. Jordan Richards played 32% of the snaps against New Orleans and looks like the next guy up. The Falcons also recently signed former Bucs S Keith Tandy and could shift Kemal Ishmael back from LB. We'll see about their plan over the coming week.
Falcons S Ricardo Allen will miss Sunday's game against the Texans with a sprained MCL. That's generally a multiple-week injury, but Allen returned to last week's game after hurting his knee in the 2nd quarter. We'll see about his timeline. Atlanta could turn to Kemal Ishmael or Undrafted rookie Robenson Therezie in Allen's absence.
