The Atlanta Falcons hose the Cincinnati Bengals on Thursday, in their second preseason game of the 2012 NFL season. Game time, TV schedule and injury update information is provided.
The Falcons will face the Bengals without Akeem Dent, who suffered a concussion in the team's 31-17 loss to the Baltimore Ravens in the preseason opener. Corey Peters and Vance Walker are both out with long-term injuries, and rookie defensive end Louis Nzegwu will miss the game after injuring his leg against the Ravens.
Though the standard preseason caution will likely be on display, the first team offense and defense should see more action against the Bengals. The offense saw 21 snaps against the Ravens, while the first-team defense played for nine snaps.
