Former FCS Football Star Heads to IR for Atlanta Falcons
High draft picks from the FCS level have been few and far between in the NFL. When a player does make the jump, it's fun to keep tabs on their career progress.
Troy Andersen was a second-round pick of the Atlanta Falcons just a few seasons ago out of national power Montana State and has been off to a good start.
Now, unfortunately, the former Bobcat is heading to Injured Reserve:
Falcons coach Arthur Smith said Monday it was "certainly possible" the injury would end Andersen's season but the injury "didn't look good."
That's not good news. Anderson last season as a rookie finished with 69 total tackles and a forced fumble while appearing in all 17 games for Atlanta.
The Falcons at 2-1 will now take on the Jacksonville Jaguars in London in Week 4, an early kickoff time on Sunday at 8:30 Central.
