What was supposed to be one of the competitions to watch in Falcons camp might not be much of one early.
“At this point, we do not know the extent of the injury, but we expect to have more information early next week,” Smith said.
Tatupu, a former All-Pro with the Seahawks, was out of football last year, and was thought to be over the injury issues that plagued the end of his Seahawks run. The Falcons open training camp next Thursday.
(UPDATE: 12:15 p.m.) The Atlanta Journal Constitution’s terming it a “serious” injury, saying Tatupu will miss the start of camp, and will see a specialist to determine the severity of the injury.
