Falcons lose 3 more offensive linemen in game against Vikings

The already banged-up Atlanta Falcons offensive line has been decimated by injuries against the Minnesota Vikings.

The Falcons lost three starting linemen in the first three quarters Sunday, forcing them to play tight end Levin Toilolo at right tackle in the fourth.

Left guard Justin Blalock left the game in the second quarter with a back injury, right tackle Lamar Holmes went out with a right foot injury in the third quarter, and center Joe Hawley had to be taken off the field on a cart with a right leg injury at the end of the third.

The Falcons were already missing left tackle Sam Baker, who was lost for the year in the preseason to a right knee injury.
