Sam Baker Injured, Leaving Preseason Game Vs. Texans

The oft-injured left tackle appears to have gone down again.

Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports

Sam Baker has gone down with an injury to his left leg, and while we don't have any details this early, it's not looking good for the team's starting left tackle.

We'll have an update as soon as we know Baker's condition, but it's fair to say losing him would be a major blow to the offensive line just as it appeared to be greatly improved. The Falcons would be forced to go shopping for offensive line help or start Lamar Holmes, Jake Matthews or Ryan Schraeder on the left side if Baker had to miss significant time. Just hope this isn't a serious injury, as that's all we can do after Baker lost most of 2013 to a leg injury.
