The Falcons are Looking for a new Backup Quarterback After AJ McCarron’s Season-Ending Injury

After losing AJ McCarron to a season-ending injury, the Atlanta Falcons are looking for a new backup quarterback.

During Saturday’s preseason game against Miami, McCarron tore his ACL in his right knee. That’s exactly the kind of injury the Falcons dreaded.

Only Matt Ryan and undrafted rookie Feleipe Franks are available for the Falcons, which means they’ll almost certainly be looking for a more seasoned and solid veteran backup to Ryan.

The Falcons have had a difficult offseason, as they parted ways with one of their franchise players earlier in the process. The loss of McCarron isn’t as significant, but it’s still a headache for the Falcons to cope with this late in the preseason.
