Falcons LB Vic Beasley expected to miss a month with hamstring injury

Falcons LB Vic Beasley expected to miss a month with hamstring injury”

Atlanta's outside linebacker Vic Beasley left Sunday night's 34-23 win over the Packers (1-1) in the third quarter with a hamstring injury and did not return to action.

If Beasley is sidelined a month, he would miss games against the Detroit Lions, Buffalo Bills and Miami Dolphins because of a Week 5 bye.

It did not take long for the NFL Network's Ian Rapoport to affirm Klein's report.

The team has not yet confirmed Beasley's status. He led the National Football League past year with 15.5 sacks, racked up six forced fumbles along the way and scored a touchdown on an interception. He already had picked up a sack in each of the Falcons' first two games this season.

Beasley was off to another fast start in 2017, recording a sack in each of the Falcons' first two games. Rookie Takk McKinley will need to step up in a big way in the meantime.

Atlanta's defense is still coming together and maturing under head coach Dan Quinn, but there is little doubt that it has the athleticism and talent needed to be a special group in the near future.
