INJURY Update: Just In Atlanta Falcons Head Coach Raheem Morris Just Confirm Another Two Top Experienced Star Player Injured…

Bijan Robinson’s injury: The running back should be ready for training camp and will miss early work.
Although the team’s talented second-year back is experiencing health issues, Atlanta doesn’t seem to be too concerned.

Though his rookie season was encouraging, Bijan Robinson, the gifted back for the Atlanta Falcons, is looking for a more positive term to characterize his sophomore campaign than “good” or “promising.” The Falcons are counting on Robinson, who was heralded as a generational back coming out of college, to produce results that will alter the course of games sooner rather than later.

Naturally, he can only accomplish that if he is well, which Robinson is not at this time. The bad news is that Robinson is dealing with an ankle that will keep him from playing at his highest level during minicamp. However, the team anticipates having that fixed by the end of July.


This should be put on hold until it isn’t, as everything will be alright if Robinson is well by training camp. We’ll have to be concerned if he’s not because one of the team’s most potent weapons will be a question mark come late summer. Presuming everything goes according to plan here—that is, assuming Raheem Morris hasn’t already demonstrated that he is as squirrelly about injuries as Mike Smith and Arthur Smith might be—the Falcons will be well-positioned entering the 2024 campaign with Robinson, Tyler Allgeier, and new draft pick Jase McClellan.

And they will have to be because, despite the fact that this offense should be more passing forward than anything Arthur Smith puts on the field, the run game is still very important. The Rams offense in 2023 was led by Kyren Williams, who averaged five yards per carry on 228 totes while totaling over 1,100 yards and 12 touchdowns. The Falcons would undoubtedly like to see Bijan reach that kind of production. Although they won’t have to rely on him as much as the Rams did with Williams because Royce Freeman, their #2 back, last achieved 100 carries in 2019, they should still have high expectations for a player with Robinson’s caliber in a multifaceted offense.

We all hope that Robinson is fully committed to training camp, as he will play a crucial role in the Falcons offense that will be significantly better in 2024. We just need to cross our fingers and wait for training camp to begin.
