Center McClure to Miss Opener After Knee Surgery

Falcons center Todd McClure will miss the season opener at Chicago on September 11th, coach Mike Smith said Tuesday. McClure underwent surgery on his right knee Monday.

“He has been ruled out for that game, and we hope to have a better idea in terms of his rehabilitation,” Smith told reporters. “The procedure went well, and he is in very good spirits. If there is anybody who can get back quicker than the timeline, it’s Todd McClure.” McClure’s streak of 144 consecutive games started will end when he sits out in Week 1.
