Report: Falcons DE Adrian Clayborn To Miss A Month


Former first-round pick Adrian Clayborn is scheduled to miss about a month, according to an ESPN report.

The Falcons have overachieved on the defensive line, getting contributions from castoffs like Clayborn and veteran Dwight Freeney.  They will depend more heavily on undersized ends like Brooks Reed to stop the run, as well as Tyson Jackson opposite him.
