While the Atlanta Falcons were driving down the field on their second possession of the game, Miami Dolphins linebacker Jerome Baker left the game and headed to the medical tent before departing for the locker room.
The team announced that Baker is dealing with a knee injury, and his return to action on Sunday is questionable.
In his place, came Sam Eguavoen.
Luckily for Miami, the Falcons’ drive stalled, partially due to a Jevon Holland sack on the very next play following Baker’s injury. They ended up settling for a 33-yard field goal from kicker Younghoe Koo.
For the remainder of the game, the Dolphins will have the tough task of stopping Mike Davis and Cordarrelle Patterson without their best linebacker.
