The Atlanta Falcons are on the verge of a huge upset of the New Orleans Saints, but they’ve suffered a key injury. Tight end Austin Hooper limped off the field in the fourth quarter and checked in at the medical tent. He appeared to injure his lower leg but his status is unclear for the moment.
Hooper had four receptions for 17 yards and a touchdown at the time of the injury. Luke Stocker and Jaeden Graham are backups on the roster.
