Play-by-play voice of the Atlanta Falcons Radio Network Wes Durham joined Dukes and Bell on Wednesday and talked about the injury to Andy Levitre. 

“I’d be a lot more concerned if Wes Schweitzer hadn’t played 1,000 snaps last year, and filled in nicely on Sunday the way he did," said Durham. "But I am concerned for Andy, because he’s a fighting guy and who’s played well since he’s joined the team in 2015.”

When talking about the defense's performance on Sunday against the Panthers, Wes told us about how valuable safety Ricardo Allen is.

“I thought they did OK given the changes they went through," said Durham. "I don’t think we will ever be able to judge just how valuable Ricardo Allen is to this team. The play [Brian] Poole went out hurt and Bledi Wreh-Wilson came in you could see Rico coaching him up, and you could see him doing the same with Jordan Richards throughout the game.”
