Atlanta Falcons Lose RT Mike Johnson For Season



The Atlanta Falcons offense was deal a major blow as right tackle Mike Johnson broke his leg and dislocated his left ankle and will have to undergo surgery next week for corrective measures. He most likely will miss the whole 2013 season.

Tunnel Vision: While no one will be drafting Johnson in fantasy football leagues, the loss will assuredly have a negative impact on many key chess pieces such as Matt Ryan, Steven Jackson, Roddy White and Julio Jones. This could also mean that tight end Tony Gonzalez will have to stay in more to help protect Ryan from oncoming defenders.

The Falcons line, who are already weak, will now have to look to free agency for a corrective solution.
