Falcons injury report: Kyle Pitts, Mykal Walker, two other starters get game designations heading into 49ers game

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. — The Falcons have some uncertainty about three impact starters heading into Sunday’s game against the San Francisco 49ers at Mercedes-Benz Stadium, and bad news about another.

Inside linebacker Mykal Walker has been ruled out of the Week 6 scrimmage.

Kyle Pitts, left guard Elijah Wilkinson and tackle Ade Ogundeji were listed as questionable to play against the 49ers on the team’s official injury report, which was released Friday afternoon.

The Falcons are clearly better if those questionable players are active, so having them available would be very beneficial against a talented 49ers team.

Pitts was benched in Week 5 against Tampa Bay, and his presence and production were sorely missed in a close game. In addition to being a receiving threat all over the field, Pitts changes the way the Falcons are covered just by his presence on the field. He creates opportunities for others, including rookie wide receiver Drake London, when he’s in form.

Pitts said Wednesday he believes he’ll be good to go Sunday, but that hasn’t been formally determined yet.

Walker is the defensive signal caller, and those duties would likely fall to others. Working without him will also be big, as rookie Troy Andersen will likely see more snaps.

Wilkinson and Ogundeji are also vital cogs who are hard to replace, so monitoring the status of those players will also be important ahead of match day.
