Falcons Send LT Sam Baker To IR

The Falcons announced they are placing left tackle Sam Baker on injured reserve.

Smith said Baker would have a procedure done this week on his knee, which kept him out of Sunday’s game against Seattle.

Lamar Holmes looks to be the player to take Baker’s spot at left tackle for the rest of the year, and Smith sounded confident in his progression as a second-year player.

“I think Lamar has progressed extremely well at left tackle,” Smith said Tuesday night. “He’s gotten better every week. You have to evaluate those guys individually and I think he’s done a very good job. He’s gotten better. I don’t think he’s really had a setback game. He’s gotten better individually every week.”
