The Falcons are struggling to find consistency in several phases of the game, and injuries are a big part of the problem.
So the news that left tackle Sam Baker could miss next Monday’s game with the Jets comes as unwelcome news.
According to D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Baker isn’t expected to be able to go after aggravating a knee injury against the Patriots.
Baker missed Week Three’s loss to the Dolphins, and hasn’t been particularly effective when he was in the lineup. But backup Lamar Homes hasn’t been any better, after having lost the starting right tackle job to late veteran pickup Jeremy Trueblood.
