Falcons OT Baker out 3-4 weeks with back injury

Atlanta Falcons offensive tackle Sam Baker will miss three to four weeks with a back injury.

Baker, the 21st overall selection in the 2008 NFL Draft, has started 41-of-44 career games. He had surgery to repair a herniated disk in his back during his rookie season.

Will Svitek, who started for Baker against Detroit two weeks ago, will take his place again in the starting lineup when the Falcons take on the Colts in Indianapolis this coming Sunday.
