The Falcons received devastating news following yesterday’s game. Rookie Chris Lindstrom will head to the IR with a fractured foot. He will be in a boot for eight weeks, and then the Falcons hope he will be able to return in the second half of the season. It’s a monumental loss for an offensive line that was supposed to take a leap forward this year.
In his press conference on Monday, Quinn acknowledged the news and stated that Jamon Brown will move over to right guard to take Lindstrom’s place. Brown was inactive for Sunday’s game, which he admitted surprised him. Wes Schweitzer took over for Lindstrom once he was forced to exit, but it looks like he will remain a backup going forward.
