As reported by Jason La Canfora via twitter, reports have come out of a possible ACL tear for pass rusher Chris Clemons.
Clemons cleat was caught on the muddy uprooted surface of Fedex field and he suffered leg swelling and ‘looseness’ of his joints. Clemons has the quote ‘telltale signs of (an injured) ACL’. An MRI has been scheduled for tomorrow morning.
No doubt this news comes as a sigh of relief for the Falcons, and Matt Ryan alike. But if an ACL injury is confirmed this is a huge blow for the Seahawks, whose key to the game in stopping Matt Ryan will have to be changed fast.
