Add Akeem Dent to the list of Falcons injured this season. (John Bazemore)
The Atlanta Falcons have ruled out three starters for Monday night’s game versus the New York Jets.
Left tackle Sam Baker (knee), middle linebacker Akeem Dent (ankle), and running back Steven Jackson (hamstring) will all miss the game.
Second-year player Lamar Holmes, who lost his starting right tackle spot to Jeremy Trueblood, will start at left tackle for Baker.
Omar Gaither, who was signed just three weeks ago, will fill in for Dent.
As has been the case since Jackson was injured in Week 2, Jacquizz Rodgers and Jason Snelling will look to fill the running back void.
Luckily, the Falcons have the bye week after Monday night’s game, so there’s a chance to get healthy for the rest of the season.
