Falcons offense is one of the best in the country with reigning NFL MVP Matt Ryan leading the team at quarterback along with receiver Julio Jones and running back Devonta Freeman.
Coach Dan Quinn has said that rookie running back Brian Hill is out of the Falcons’ season-opener on Sunday against the Chicago Bears as he still needs time to recover from an ankle injury he suffered in the third preseason game.
Offensive lineman Austin Pasztor is also questionable for the clash.
It’s official that rookie linebacker Duke Riley is set to start at the WILL linebacker position in the Falcons’ base package against the Bears on Sunday.
All eyes will be on Bears’ quarterback Mike Glennon when he gets to start a season opener for the first time through his five-year NFL career. The free-agent acquisition showed significant improvement during the preseason games, as he posted passer ratings of 78.2 against the Cardinals and then a 102.5 in his final against Titans.
Inside linebacker Danny Trevathan has overcome a ruptured patellar tendon in his right knee and will play the season opener against the Falcons. He is ranked third on the Bears with 73 tackles in last season playing in just nine games. He can give a good fight to daunting Falcons defense.
