If he thought it was tough scoring on goal-to-go in the season-opening loss at Philadelphia , Sarkisian knows this week might be more difficult as Atlanta tries to avoid becoming a one-dimensional passing attack at Washington.Quarterback Matt Ryan needs a play-action threat to keep the Redskins (5-2) from locking down all afternoon on his receivers, so the Falcons (3-4) must find a way to establish the ground game against a tough defensive front.The outlook does not look promising. The Falcons rank 30th in yards rushing. The Redskins rank second in defending the run.Devonta Freeman, Atlanta's top running back, was lost to groin surgery earlier this month. Starting guards Andy Levitre and Brandon Fusco are out for the season with injuries."Each game takes on its own personality in essence," Sarkisian said Thursday. "So it is beneficial when you can hang with it and stick with it, but there are times when we've got to do what is best for us right now. You just try to figure it out as it goes, and it's all part of making those decisions at those moments when they come and try to do what's best for the team."Sarkisian insists he won't press if Atlanta struggles to run the ball early in the game. He plans to keep trying to mix it in on later drives.The Falcons have one of the NFL's premier passing games with Ryan throwing to Julio Jones, Calvin Ridley, Mohamed Sanu and Austin Hooper, so the team will stick with what it does best."Sometimes to run the football you have to establish it at times and then finally something does pop, but there's other times that this drive is so important right now, let's do what is best for us at this moment right now," Sarkisian said. "And that may be to run it more and that may be throw it more."The Redskins are loaded up front. Ends Matt Ioannidis and Jonathan Allen and linebacker Ryan Kerrigan have combined for 14 sacks and 22 quarterback hits. Nose tackle Da'Ron Payne figures to make it a long day for guards Wes Schweitzer and Ben Garland."There are a lot of twists and stunts and games that they do up front that make it challenging on your guys up front," Sarkisian said. "It's not always just the one-on-one rush. They start pairing two guys, three guys together, sometimes even all four of them together Cheap Calvin Ridley Jersey , so they really do it cohesively. The challenge for us is to make sure we're protecting cohesively."Sarkisian likes how third-year veteran Tevin Coleman and Ito Smith have combined to fill Freeman's spot. He thinks that Schweitzer has done a respectable job in five games for Levitre, and Garland, who started the final five games last season, has plenty of experience as he prepares to take over for Fusco.Sarkisian was pleased with how Coleman responded on a third-and-1 run early in the fourth quarter of Atlanta's previous game, a narrow win over the New York Giants. Running off right tackle, Coleman sprinted for a 30-yard touchdown that's one of the few rushing highlights for Atlanta this season."That type of explosiveness we know is there in our run game," Sarkisian said. "We've just to keep hunting and pecking until it comes."Jones sees no reason to worry. He believes Atlanta will find ways to score regardless."The Redskins haven't played the 2018 Atlanta Falcons, so we're going in there and we're going to try to run the ball," Jones said. "We're going to run. We're going to pass. They've got to stop us on Sunday."Notes: Sanu (hip) was held out of practice a day after being a limited participant. ... CB Robert Alford (ankle) missed practice for the second straight day. Coach Dan Quinn said he was injured against the Giants but didn't want to come out. Isaiah Oliver will start if Alford can't play. ... PK Matt Bryant did not participate, and it appears likely that Giorgio Tavecchio will replace him for the second straight game.An ode to Keanu Neal and the season that should have been Keanu Neal hits you like you owe him money. He sees you, he zeroes in, and you’re on your back before you can figure out why or what day it is. The prodigious punishment he inflicts upon opposing players is a beautiful thing to behold, and unfortunately it’s going to be at least a year before we’re privileged enough to bear witness to it again. Neal is the sledgehammer of the defense, permanent resident in Willie Snead’s nightmares, and unquestionably one of the best additions to the Falcons in a long, long time. His twice-buckling knee on Thursday night was a tragic reminder that demi-gods are still part human , and the Falcons are now forced into the daunting position of replacing the irreplaceable. To say things have changed is an understatement, but such is the way of football and the Atlanta Falcons will endure the next fifteen games without their star strong safety. Endure, and hope to overcome. Atlanta’s Pro Bowl defender will be on the shelf for some time, presumably going into surgery for his torn ACL this week. It will be a long, at times frustrating recovery, so we of course wish him the absolute best as he treads the path many have before him and none of whom have ever wished for. It’s a brutal game at times. Entering just his third year in the NFL, Keanu Neal possesses the poise and swagger of a well-worn veteran. “Taking the next step” this season doesn’t seemingly apply to a young player who has already made an indelible mark on Atlanta’s defensive rebuild, but he appeared positioned to enter 2018 and continue to burnish his reputation as one of the best strong safeties in the league. And then his knee buckled. And then it buckled again. Dan Quinn was cautiously optimistic after the Eagles game, conveying that Neal’s injury didn’t appear very serious. Keanu would have an MRI on Friday morning just to medically confirm the sigh of relief that the team expected, and he’d be good to go for Week 2. Instead they got the unexpected. And so did we. So the Falcons secondary has a massive question mark moving forward, and no matter how they choose to address it there’s simply no substitute for Keanu Neal. They’ll make due as best they can, and we’ll hope whoever is tabbed to fill those massive shoes can turn off the outside noise and simply play. Because he’s going to be compared to Keanu Neal, the Falcons’ defensive enforcer and the man who puts wide receivers on notice. The man who makes you regret dialing up a crossing route; the man who finally put the oomph back in Atlanta. So raise a glass to Keanu Neal tonight. We’ll see you on the sidelines sooner than later, and we can’t wait to see you back on the field next season.
