Falcons Secondary Takes Another Hit With Darqueze Dennard Going on Injured List



Atlanta Falcons

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) – The Atlanta Falcons have placed cornerback Darqueze Dennard on the reserve/injured list with a hamstring injury. The loss of Dennard for at least three games deals another blow to the Falcons’ depleted secondary. The Falcons were missing two starting defensive backs, safety Ricardo Allen and rookie cornerback A.J. Terrell, their top draft pick, in Sunday’s loss to Chicago. The team announced Saturday that Terrell has been placed on the COVID-19 reserve list. Kendall Sheffield, another key cornerback, missed his second straight game with a foot injury. The Falcons play at Green Bay on Monday night.

His television career started at WJSU-TV in Anniston where he had the opportunity to cover SEC football with Alabama and Auburn. Anniston is just 20 minutes from the Talladega Speedway, so NASCAR was a big part of his sports coverage. Due to this he was able to interview Davey Allison, Dale Earnhardt, Jeff Gordon, and several other top-name NASCAR drivers.

Rick’s next television job was in Savannah, Georgia, where he covered basketball player Kwame Brown (now with the Washington Wizards), who later became the first ever high school player selected as the top pick in the NBA draft. He covered the PGA Tour’s annual swing thru Hilton Head and also had the opportunity of covering the Atlanta Falcons Super Bowl appearance in 1999 in Miami.

Rick especially enjoys all the atmosphere, tradition and drama of college football. He also likes profiling sports personalities and learning what drives them both on and off the field.

If he’s not covering sports, he’s either watching Seinfield or David Letterman, playing golf, reading, or working out.

What he enjoys about Chattanooga is the passion people have for sports. The mountainous region of Chattanooga reminds him of his hometown of Anniston, which also has big, beautiful trees and plenty of hills.
