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.
