Midway through the third quarter, Falcons linebacker Erroll Thompson left the game and is being evaluated for a head injury. Thompson went to the ground after lowering his head to tackle Dolphins tight end Chris Myarick.

Erroll Thompson down for the Falcons grabbing his head. Arthur Smith out almost immediately to look at him.

Thompson, an undrafted rookie from Mississippi State, was making a strong push for the Falcons’ practice squad, if not the team’s 53-man roster. Thompson had a strong showing a week ago, but Atlanta’s defense has been unable to replicate its success from a week ago.
UPDATE: Erroll Thompson has since returned to the field.
