Falcons fans saw their nightmare scenario play out on Sunday. If Kyle Pitts hasn’t been utilized well thanks to limitations at quarterback, things may be a lot worse if he misses time with an injury.

In the middle of the third quarter, Pitts took a low helmet to his knee/thigh area by a defensive back after Pitts secured a catch. Pitts was very slow to get up after taking the hit. He was helped to his feet by another player, then lightly jogged off the field with a very slight but noticeable limp. He appeared to be trying to walk off the injury.

After the commercial break, Pitts was seen walking to the locker room with a trainer. He was quickly ruled questionable to return with a knee injury.

Before Sunday’s game, Pitts had only 313 receiving yards and 2 touchdowns through 9 games. MyCole Pruitt looks to garner additional targets with Pitts in the locker room. We hope Pitts has a speedy return and we will update when available.
