Chris Ownes will be in the running for more playing time with the injury to Grimes.
Who will be the guy in nickel sets for the Falcons?
Will it be Dominique Franks, Chris Owens or Robert McClain?
While McClain impressed the most against the Broncos, I'm not sure he's ready for a big role on the team. Let's not forget he was one of the last players to make the Falcons roster in the preseason.
So, what about Franks? He's got great return skills and can stick his tackles. But can he get the interceptions or pass deflections at key times?
Then there's Owens, who was injured in Denver game. While he'll be back at the latest in Week 4, I'm not sure Owens is the guy to be in the No. 3 spot. Last year, he was the No. 5 guy, and he hasn't improved that much over the course of a year.
So, whom do you put in there?
I think safety Chris Hope would be the best fit. Although he's not a corner, Hope is the better coverage man than the other players.
