Falcons rule out K Koo, S Allen and Neal vs Packers

Defensive end Takk McKinley (groin) was able to do some running Friday and will be a game-time decision, according to Quinn.

The Falcons (0-3) added kicker Elliott Fry to the practice squad this week. He will make his NFL debut in place of Koo, who wasn’t able to handle kickoffs and missed a field goal and an extra point in the 30-26 loss to Chicago.
