Falcons Even More Shorthanded at Quarterback as Shockley Reportedly Lost for Season

The Atlanta Falcons reportedly will be without reserve quarterback D.J. Shockley all season.

Shockley suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee during a preseason game against the Buffalo Bills on Friday, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported.

That leaves the Falcons with Chris Redman and the just-signed Casey Bramlet behind starter Joey Harrington, with Michael Vick having been barred by the NFL from reporting to training camp as he faces federal dogfighting charges.

Would anyone else like to see the Skins trade Brunell to ATL for picks or a O lineman?

Yeah sure. The Falcons have no use for antiques and their offensive line situation is as delicate as the Redskins
