FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. -- Patrick Kerney has been the ironman of the Atlanta Falcons defense, starting 105 games in a row.

I hope he heals up and can come back next year. BUT, if it was going to happen its better that it happened before we played them, as he is usually a madman against the Saints. If he and Abraham are both out, it will make the day much easier on Drew Brees and the O-line.

Already posted, but thanks.

Rule of thumb, even if something seems like breaking news, if it has anything to do with the Saints or NFC South, it was probably posted here the previous day.

Well, its actually still breaking news to me so I appreciate the post. The Falcons defense is in for some real trouble if they can't get any kind of pass rush, especially considering how incredibly banged up their secondary is. Missing 2 of your top 3 corners and both of your starting defensive ends is absolutely devistating.

Ouch... Falcons defense takes another blow...

Falcons DE Patrick Kerney is out for the rest of the season after tearing his pectoral muscle in Sundays loss to the Brownies. Starting CB Jason Webster is already out 4-6 weeks with a groin injury, and nickel back Kevin Mathis is done for the year with a neck injury. AND, of course, John Abraham is still hurt.
