Falcons S DeCoud leaves game with head injury

Falcons safety Thomas DeCoud has left Sunday’s game with a head

injury suffered after trying to tackle Packers running back Eddie

Lacy on a 1-yard touchdown run.

DeCoud came in off the edge on the play at the end of the first

quarter, then stayed down for a couple minutes while being

evaluated by medical personnel. He walked off on his power.

DeCoud, who went to the Pro Bowl last year, was fourth on the

team with 54 tackles going into Sunday.

Linebacker Sean Weatherspoon also left after the game following

Lacy’s touchdown to be evaluated for a shoulder injury, but

returned in the second quarter.
