Falcons LT Sam Baker 'healing up well'
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Falcons general manager Thomas Dimitroff said left tackle Sam Baker, who missed the entire 2014 season with a torn patella tendon, is recovering well, reports the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

"Sam is healing up well,” Dimitroff said. “He’s a guy that’s focused. He’s been in there all the time … He’s really focused with trying to get back on track.”

Jake Matthews, the No. 6 overall pick in the 2014 draft, took over at left tackle after Baker suffered the injury in a preseason game. It's unclear whether Baker can reclaim his job once fully healthy. 

"It will be interesting to see how both players fit in the new zone-blocking scheme that offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan plans to implement," the paper said.

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

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.
