Falcons LB Dante Fowler ruled out for Dolphins game

The Atlanta Falcons, fresh off a bye week, still won’t be at full strength when they visit the Miami Dolphins on Sunday.

Pass-rusher Dante Fowler missed the full week of practice and will be out again Sunday with a knee injury, head coach Arthur Smith confirmed Friday.

In addition, cornerback Avery Williams is doubtful with a hamstring injury and right tackle Kaleb McGary may or may not be off the reserve/COVID-19 list in time for the game.

Fowler, 27, leads the team in sacks (two) and forced fumbles (two) despite seeing limited time — just 25 snaps — in the Falcons’ 27-20 win against the New York Jets on Oct. 10 in London.

For his career, he has 32 1/2 sacks and nine forced fumbles in 82 games.

Williams, 23, has been a reserve corner and top kick return option for the Falcons (2-3) this year, with a combined 13 returns on punts and kicks.

McGary, 26, has started 34 of his 35 games in an Atlanta uniform.
