Falcons dodge yet another injury scare with Gabe Carimi

The Falcons’ season went to pot last year when their stars kept getting injured.

This year, their luck seems to have turned.

A day after defensive tackle Ra’Shede Hageman went from a reported broken wrist to practicing fully, they’ve dodged another bullet.

According to Alex Marvez of FOX Sports, tackle Gabe Carimi is believed to have only suffered a sprained ankle yesterday. Carimi had to be helped off the field by trainers.

Carimi’s working as their swing tackle in practice, adding some veteran depth to a group that was bad last year.

But if they’ve figured out the way to change their injury luck, that would be more important than any single player.
