ATL 1st Rd Pick Jerry Peria Sidelined by Knee Injury

The Atlanta Falcons can only hope that first-round pick Peria Jerry stays healthy in his rookie season.
Drafted 24th overall out of Ole Miss, Jerry left the early session of Atlanta's mini-camp Saturday morning with a sprained right knee and didn't return for the late-afternoon practice.

Jerry seemed to have caught his cleats in the grass after banging his knees together during a drill but was able to walk off the field under his own power. The Falcons were not wearing protective pads during the practice; each of the mini-camp workouts is non-contact.

Coach Mike Smith said the defensive tackle consulted a doctor, but the team does not yet know if the injury was serious. Jerry was not available to speak with reporters.

"That's all we know right now," Smith said Saturday night. Smith said the team should have an update Sunday.

Now out for the year.

Falcons first rounder Jerry done for year due to knee injury
Associated Press
FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. -- The Atlanta Falcons have a big hole to fill on the defensive line after first-round pick Peria Jerry sustained a season-ending knee injury in a victory over the Carolina Panthers.

The rookie defensive tackle tore up his left knee in the fourth quarter of Sunday's 28-20 victory, which improved the Falcons to 2-0 for only the seventh time in the team's 44-year history. He was placed on injured reserve Monday.

Thomas Johnson, who had not played in the NFL since 2006 until making the Falcons' roster, will move up to a starting spot.

"It's very unfortunate for Peria," coach Mike Smith said. "It's a very, very violent game on the offensive and defensive lines. We're going to miss him, but we've go to move forward."
