Key players on both teams ruled out for Falcons-Buccaneers Monday night

When the Falcons have the ball against the Buccaneers on Monday night, both teams will be at less than 100 percent.

The Falcons have announced that running back Tevin Coleman and starting guard Andy Levitre will both miss Monday’s game. Coleman still hasn’t been cleared from a concussion he suffered last week against the Saints, while Levitre has been dealing with a triceps injury.

But the Buccaneers’ defense may be in worse shape than the Falcons’ offense: Tampa Bay defensive tackle Gerald McCoy (biceps), linebacker Lavonte David (hamstring) and cornerback Vernon Hargreaves (hamstring) are all out.

Monday night’s game is a big one for the 8-5 Falcons, who are fighting for a playoff spot. The Buccaneers are out of playoff contention, but Dirk Koetter may be coaching for his job.

  1. Until the Bucs get a respectable HC AND an actual franchise QB, they will not be much of a threat in the NFC South… They could be 100% come Monday night and the end will still be the same… Falcons win!

    The Falcons should put on a show on national TV Monday night if this game is anything like the last time they played each other!
