Falcons injury update on Kaleb McGary, Matt Bosher following win over Eagles

Matt Bosher suffered a groin injury against the Eagles and although he was able to continue punting throughout the game, his injury clearly hampered his ability to strike the ball the way he typically can.

Bosher only punted the ball twice (39 and 42 yards) in Atlanta’s 24-20 win over Philadelphia.

Falcons coach Dan Quinn provided an update on the status of his punter on Monday:

“As far as where we’re at, it’s too early to call,” Quinn said. “I’ll have a better sense as we go through the week.”

The Falcons will monitor Bosher’s progression throughout the week before making a decision on Friday. Quinn said that would likely be the day the make the decision on if he’ll be able to put on Sunday when Atlanta travels to Indianapolis to take on the Colts (1-1).

Wide receiver Mohamed Sanu is Atlanta’s backup punter. Quinn also said they would consider bringing someone in from the outside if Bosher is unable to be at full strength.

As far as Kaleb McGary and the knee injury he suffered against the Eagles, it doesn’t appear that his injury will be anything that will keep him out for an extended period of time.

McGary was able to return to the Sunday’s game after injuring his knee in the first half.

“From last night we knew had a good report,” Quinn said. “I think it showed a lot of toughness for him to come back and enter the game. Like a lot of the guys, when you have something, it was sore today but we’re hoping there’s no further setback from the injury of where it was. We’ll take him through the week and hopefully he’ll progress and do well.”

The Falcons will resume practice on Wednesday as they get ready for a three-game stretch against AFC South opponents.
