--The Redskins were monitoring QB Patrick Ramsey's sprained shoulder on Monday. His status for Wednesday's practice will be updated in coming days. Ramsey played through the injury and was unconcerned after the game, but coach Steve Spurrier wasn't so sure.
--WR Laveranues Coles leads the NFL in
receiving yards (286) after a sparkling career day at Atlanta. Coles caught 11
balls for 180 yards despite a pair of hits to the head and neck area that had
him walk off the field woozy twice.
--NT Jermaine Haley was an
unexpected inactive with a fractured thumb. The injury was no secret during the
week but neither Haley nor team officials gave any indication he wouldn't play.
Martin Chase replaced him in the starting lineup.
--FB Rock Cartwright apparently remains the top option in short-yardage situations. He got
three straight carries on the Falcons' 1 in the second quarter, missing twice up
the gut and then sprinting around the right edge for a score.
--S Ifeanyi Ohalete continues to make big plays -- in ways both good and bad. In
the first quarter he yielded a 28-yard catch to TE Alge Crumpler to set up
Atlanta's first touchdown; in the second, he redeemed himself with a big
interception return to the Falcons' 1.
