    These week 1, week 2 season ender injuries are always the worst. Imagine how it would feel to be the player in that situation. Just got through the offseason workouts, the whole 9 yards, learning the offense/defense, scheming, all the hopes for the new season, all the excitement and expectations all to be shattered and postponed for 9 months or so till you get back on the field again next season.

    It has to be the ultimate disappointment for players. Worse than losing in the Super Bowl or anything along those lines.

    Tough loss for the Falcons. Maybe they come knocking on the Cowboys door for a CB in the coming weeks. However, the Falcons are pretty deep at Corner with Samuel, Owens, and Franks behind him who all have some experience.

    Wow, this really sucks for Grimes who signed his one year tender and was hoping to be able to land a big deal this offseason.
