Falcons vs. Jets: Final Week 8 injury and weather report
Heading into Week 8 action, the New York Jets welcome the Atlanta Falcons to MetLife Stadium. Here is the final injury report for both teams as well as today’s weather for the game.
The New York Jets are set to hopefully turn their season around with an important game against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 8 action. Both teams are on losing streaks and a win here will bring some sort of clarity to the direction they’re heading in as the second half of the regular season begins.
For the Falcons, they’re going into this game with two players that are ruled out but for the most part, are relatively healthy. The Jets, on the other hand, got hit with more severe injuries to key positions on the team.
The Jets will be without their solid offensive tackle in Brandon Shell and Buster Skrine is also out. Last week, the defensive secondary of the Jets was lit up as much is expected to be the same with the Falcons knowing this positional group will be shuffling players in and out at cornerback.
Below you will find the latest injury report for both teams, courtesy of the Media Relations Department of the Jets:
