Falcons-Saints Post-Game Injury Update: Desmond Trufant Suffers Leg Concussion

New, comments

Fact(s): Desmond Trufant makes onions cry. William Moore loves onions.

Bet you didn't know leg concussions were possible. Yes, when you're hit hard by a slightly too ready William Moore, it's possible to suffer a leg concussion. Symptoms include forgetting where your knees are during spirited renditions of "Eyes, Fingers, Knees, and Toes."

Desmond Trufant was absolutely leveled by Moore as he nearly intercepted a Drew Brees pass in the end zone. I'll be honest, it looked like a hit that'd cause a head injury. But Trufant somehow injured his thigh. Figures.

Ultimately Trufant returned in the second half and made some good plays. He continues to impress and I'm glad whatever was ailing him passed.

Garrett Reynolds also left the game at one point. Peter Konz replaced him. There was no evident injury, thus it was probably just an ill-timed, mid-game attempt to remedy the lackluster pass protection. Awesome.

Not too bad on the injury front. Certainly a scary moment with Trufant, but he came back strong in the 2nd half. Again, given that there are only 5 more weeks of Falcons football, we can't afford any injuries that will affect 2014.
