BY foxsports • September 4, 2015

The Atlanta Falcons were dealt a pretty rough blow about free agent acquisition linebacker Brooks Reed. According to Ian Rapoport of, the former Houston Texan underwent surgery on his injured groin, which will force him to miss six weeks.

Reed signed a five-year, $22.5 million deal with $9 million guaranteed this offseason, but we'll have to wait and see what he can bring to the Falcons defense for a few more weeks.
