Harry Douglas was carted off of the field at training camp on Wednesday, which is sending a shockwave through Atlanta fans’ hearts right about now. Coach Smith has yet to comment on the injury and there has been no official report.
Rumors are swirling from a torn ACL to only some cramping from the heat. Those are some pretty big extremes, but Falcon fans are rooting for the latter. The injury came from a drill with Chris Owens, the rookie cornerback. After a couple jams at the line of scrimmage, Douglas fell to the ground. He was unable to get up after repeated attempts and eventually carted off the practice field.
Douglas is considered a key component to the Falcons’ offense this year as a slot receiver, returner and possibly more.
