10:12 AM ET 08.22 | Despite having two wide receivers injured, the Falcons do not plan to add any players at the position. Rookie Kerry Meier is out for the season with an undisclosed knee injury. Veteran Michael Jenkins is out for four to six weeks as of Aug. 8 with an injured left shoulder. Last season when Harry Douglas suffered a torn ACL early in training camp, the Falcons signed veterans Robert Ferguson and Marty Booker. Booker ended up making the team. The Falcons opened camp with 11 wide receivers and are down to nine with two exhibition games to play.

Maybe they can bring Vick back? Not that it would ever happen but the NFL is a funny league. Pac-Man is still getting hired so anything is possible.

Yes, I can just see him taking the field for the first time as "Who Let The Dogs Out" is blared over the PA.

Why is that season-ending knee injury "undisclosed", exactly?

Why not Marvin Harrison? He hasn't shot at anyone in like six months. That's gotta be worth something.

Falcons bring 11 Wide Receivers into camp... Guess they are looking for atleast one who can get open for Matt Ryan

They still have Brian "hands of stone" Finnerran. He is a guarantee to drop at least two passes per game! How does this guy manage to hang on every single year?!?
