Adrian Clayborn to miss at least a month with torn MCL, partially torn meniscus

Oh no.

NFL: Arizona Cardinals at Atlanta Falcons Jason Getz-USA TODAY Sports

While the Atlanta Falcons turned in a commanding 38-19 victory on the over the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday, they still incurred a sizable loss.

Defensive end Adrian Clayborn tore his MCL and partially tore his meniscus, and is expected to miss at least a month.

Clayborn has turned in a solid year, notching 20 tackles and 4.5 sacks in 11 games. He’s part of the reason why the Falcons have found a pass rush this season.
