Falcons' Baker gone for season

Posted: Updated:
FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) - The Atlanta Falcons' revamped offensive line took a major setback when left tackle Sam Baker was ruled out for the year after injuring his right knee in a preseason game.
    
The Falcons announced Sunday that the injury plagued Baker sustained a torn patellar tendon in a 32-7 loss to the Houston Texans.
    
First-round pick Jake Matthews could move from right to left tackle to replace Baker, but the injury is a major setback to Atlanta's efforts to bolster a line that was one of the league's worst a year ago.
