Sam Baker carted off field with knee injury
by R.J. White |

Falcons left tackle Sam Baker had to be carted off the field with a knee injury in his team's preseason game against the Texans Saturday.

The Falcons announced that Baker will not return to action. If he is in fact injured, it's a big blow to an Atlanta offensive line that figured to be improved this season with the addition of first-round pick Jake Matthews. The rookie may be pressed into left-tackle duty if the outlook on Baker is grim, or the team may turn to Lamar Holmes, who replaced Baker in Saturday's game.

Sam Baker expects clearance this week
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

Falcons offensive tackle Sam Baker, who underwent season-ending knee surgery last year, said he expects to receive full clearance this week, reports ESPN.

"I'm feeling good," Baker said Monday night. "In a couple days, I should be cleared. I've been running, doing everything, and I should get fully cleared in a couple days. It's great, especially because we're getting ready with the offseason stuff, to be able to get out with the offense and to be able to go back to doing plays and stuff like that."

Baker had problems with his left knee last season and attempted to resolve the issue with platelet rich plasma (PRP) treatment, but it didn’t respond. In November, the team announced he would undergo surgery and be placed on injured reserve.

Baker played in just four games last season after starting all 16 games in 2012 and performing well at left tackle. The former first-round draft pick is due to make $7.25 million this season with a cap value of $6.05 million.
