The Atlanta Falcons have announced rookie fullback Bradie Ewing is out for the season after tearing his ACL versus the Baltimore Ravens in Thursday night’s preseason game.
With how long Ewing was down, I feared the injury was serious. He was injured on a special teams play in the first half after his foot was caught in the turf. When he was unable to put any weight on his left knee and eventually carted off to the locker room, I knew there was an extremely small chance that the injury would be minor.
Ewing was competing with veteran fullback Mike Cox for the starting job. The Falcons drafted Ewing in the fifth round (157th overall) of the 2012 NFL Draft.
