Mat Latos' recent struggles against the Brewers continued on Monday as he gave up five runs, four earned, and eight hits while striking out three over seven innings of work.
Latos looks like a completely different pitcher than in years past. It's unknown whether or not he's still returning to form after dealing with a surgically repaired knee. What is known is that he's striking out just 5.12 batters per-nine, a well below-average clip. He's also giving up more fly-balls than ever, which is a recipe for disaster given his home park. He's a borderline Top-40 starter going forward. ANALYST:
Tevin Coleman (ribs) will play Week 5 against Washington.
Coleman seems to have moved past his rib injury, but while he is expected to play Sunday, he will obviously play a limited role behind Devonta Freeman. The Falcons offense is firing on all cylinders right now and they don't need/want to upset the balance of things while they are on this run. Expect Coleman to work as a part-time change-of-pace back this week. Analysis: Howard Bender
Jadeveon Clowney has a walking boot on his right foot.
Clowney limped off the field late in the game while the Colts were driving down for their final touchdown of the night. He remained on the sidelines with what the Texans are saying is an ankle issue. The oft-injured Clowney will stay in the boot as a precaution and he will be re-evaluated after a couple of days. Analysis: Howard Bender
