ATLANTA -- A quarterback depth chart already perilously thin because of the ongoing absence of Michael Vick became even more threadbare Sunday, as the Atlanta Falcons lost second-year veteran D.J. Shockley for the season to a left knee injury.


Shockley tore the anterior cruciate ligament in the knee and also suffered damage to the medial collateral ligament in Friday night's preseason victory over the Buffalo Bills, two league sources confirmed. The injury was also reported by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, which cited sources with knowledge of the injury.

Team officials on Friday night termed the injury a sprain. Shockley underwent an MRI exam on Saturday and the club's medical staff huddled on Sunday to evaluate the procedure. The Falcons announced on Sunday afternoon that they would not have an update on Shockley's condition until coach Bobby Petrino addressed it following the Monday practice session.

Those 2nd rounders must be looking worse by the minute in ATL. I expect them to go fishing for more qb help.

Just a thought thought here. Atl is looking like it'll not do so well this season and if the Texans offense continues to improve...who comes out smelling like roses? Just a thought.

I hear they're in negotiations for Mark Brunell. Probably that's the smartest thing they could do.

I have a little bit of respect for Redman, and I'd like to see what Harrington can do over the season but Brunell would be a good veteran presence and I'm sure he can still start in a pinch.

Sucks they lost Shockley, though.

VY sacked multiple times and looked out of sorts. Schaub and Sage have yet to be sacked. Do the math.

This next week against Dallas will help us see how bad our protection is. If Schaub's eating turf all game, I'd say we've got some problems but I don't imagine it will be that bad.

Sounds like someone does not want his team to have to face Schuab twice a year.

Now that is just priceless.

The only team scared of the Texans any season should be the Jaguars and possibly a team trying for the next expansion team.

I'll add this though ....... I am sure both our team are happy that next season we have to play the Fail-con.

I had more meant that Dallas is very aggressive, this preseason, on the blitz. If the linemen can keep Schaub's jersey clean, I'll feel pretty good about how they'll do during the regular season. Obviously, there's not a 1-1 mapping between preseason and regular season. Look at Indianapolis for that. I'm just saying that in the third preseason game, you probably get a more accurate look at the way things will go than any other preseason game. And if Dallas blitzes the heck out of us, as I expect they will, that will be a good test.

I would agree but I still think the teams play vanilla not to tip thier hand to regular season teams. No reason to give game film to other teams just to win in preseason IMO.

Oh yeah Preseason is like the playoffs for the Texans then regular season starts and reality sets in.

So with all other teams it is preseason and it is meaningless, but to the Texans it is playoffs.

I see it is preseason for your excueses as well, you are just practicing because you know you will be making a lot of them and you want to make sure you are in mid-season form by the start of the first game.
