Falcons Lose Starting OL to Concerning Injury


Getty Kaleb McGary #76 of the Atlanta Falcons.

The Atlanta Falcons got off to a hot start against the Dallas Cowboys by picking apart their secondary, but injuries began to pile up.

Right after Takk McKinley hobbled off of the field with an apparent groin injury, Falcons starting offensive tackle Kaleb McGary went down with a scary injury.

Close to the end zone protecting Brian Hill, McGary fell to the ground. He immediately grabbed the outside of his left knee and looked to be in pain. In a non-contact injury, McGary stayed on the field for a bit while trainers came out to attend to him.

Once he was up, he couldn’t put any weight on his left knee. I don’t want to speak too soon, but this looks like it could be bad. McGary, a former first-round pick in 2019, missed the start of his rookie season with a heart-related surgery. He has been ruled out the rest of the game, per ESPN’s Vaughn McClure.

With John Wetzel out too, Matt Gono will take his spot in the starting lineup for now.
