Antone Smith will miss the rest of the 2014 season after breaking his leg in Sunday’s game with the Carolina Panthers.
Smith was injured in a special team’s play. He has been an occasional star on offense with several long touchdown runs this season. Smith has 144 rushing yards on 23 carries (6.3 yards per carry) and two touchdowns on the ground, with 13 receptions for 222 yards and three touchdowns through the air.
Falcons head coach Mike Smith said Monday the team would look to make a transaction in the next few days, with another running back being a possibility.
Also, the Falcons have had issues in the secondary all season, and now one member of the group will be out for two-to-four weeks.
Robert Alford, the starting cornerback, injured his wrist in the first quarter of Sunday’s game against the Panthers. The Falcons expect Robert McClain to take over that spot for the next several games.
The Falcons could activate Javier Arenas. He has not played in a game all season.
