James Carpenter out of Falcons-Saints with concussion

The Falcons are down yet another guard.

Atlanta’s already missing a bunch of key players tonight, and now they’ll be down one of their starting guards. James Carpenter is out with a concussion.

Carpenter has not been the kind of high-quality starter the Falcons hoped he’d be when they first signed him, but the Falcons are already depleted at guard and it’s not a good thing at all that they’re missing another.

With Carpenter out, Jamon Brown and Wes Schweitzer are the starters. Ty Sambrailo is the only reserve left at this point, so let’s hope those guys stay healthy.
