Falcons' Baker exits game with injury
By Vaughn McClure
ATLANTA -- Atlanta Falcons left tackle Sam Baker exited Sunday night's game in the second quarter with what appeared to be a left knee injury.
Baker fell to the ground while trying to block, then was helped off the field by the training staff. After a few minutes in the bench area, Baker was taken to the locker room.
Baker started the game despite being questionable coming off knee and foot injuries. He missed last week's game against Miami.
Lamar Holmes, who was benched because of Baker's return to the starting lineup, replaced Baker at left tackle. Jeremy Trueblood started at right tackle, although Holmes started the season as the starting right tackle.
