Quote :
Falcons placed CB Brent Grimes on injured reserve with a torn Achilles' tendon, ending his season.

It's a severe, out-of-nowhere blow after Grimes left Sunday's win with a "calf" injury. He'll undergo surgery. Grimes was the Falcons' franchise player after notching 49 tackles and an interception last season. H e was the No. 2 overall cornerback in Pro Football Focus' ratings. The only silver lining is that the Falcons still have Asante Samuel and Dunta Robinson to man the outside, but they now have a hole in their nickel packages. Corner is no longer a position of obvious strength for Atlanta. A torn Achilles' tendon is a career-threatening injury for a player who will turn 30 next July, but Grimes' pedigree will surely earn him another shot with the Falcons or elsewhere. He'll be an unrestricted free agent in 2013.

Sad deal here as he was set to have a nice year
