Report: Vic Beasley To Miss At Least Month With Hamstring Tear

Pass-rusher Vic Beasley was injured Sunday night against the Green Bay Packers, but the extent of what we thought was a hamstring issue wasn’t known. WSB Sports Director Zach Klein has some scoop.

Klein was the first to report, from his sources, that Beasley did tear his hamstring and that he’d miss at least a month. The team has not confirmed the extent of Beasley’s injury yet.

Beasley led the league with 15 1/2 sacks in 2016 and had already accumulated two through two weeks of this season. His loss will be a blow.

The Falcons have notched seven sacks to this point. Beasley’s two combined with two from Brooks Reed and a sack apiece from De’Vondre Campbell, Brian Poole and Adrian Clayborn have Atlanta tied for sixth place in the NFL.

In Beasley’s absence, rookie Takk McKinley will be asked to get after the quarterback a bit more, but most of the duties the team asked Beasley to perform may be split between a number of defensive players, notably Reed and Campbell. The team could also consider promoting J’Terius ones from the practice squad or even giving Dwight Freeney, who has been in contact with general manager at times during the offseason, a call to entice him from retirement.
