2012 Falcons Preseason: Akeem Dent, Louis Nzegwu Out For Thursday's Game

At least two members of the Atlanta Falcons will not dress for Thursday's exhibition contest against the Cincinnati Bengals. Per The Falcoholic, neither Akeem Dent nor Louis Nzegwu will suit up, as they continue to recover from injuries.

Dent, who may end up starting at middle linebacker for the Falcons, suffered a concussion in the Week 1 preseason matchup against the Baltimore Ravens. There's little to nothing for the Falcons to gain by bringing Dent back too quickly in the preseason from a concussion.

Nzegwu will be out due to a leg injury. As Dave Choate over at The Falcoholic points out, Nzegwu's roster spot is in jeopardy, so the missed time could have much more serious consequences for his future employment than will Dent's.

For all the latest news on the Atlanta Falcons, be sure to head over to The Falcoholic and join the discussion.
