John Parker Wilson Injury: Falcons QB Taken To Locker Room

Atlanta Falcons QB John Parker Wilson had to be removed from the preseason opener after taking a hard shot to the upper body in the third quarter. A blitzing Chris Clemons sent him whirling to the ground after the ball had left the pocket.

Wilson had a little trouble getting back up, appearing to stagger a little as a few fans could be heard gasping. He was taken into the locker room for what appears to be some sort of head injury. Hopefully nothing serious, but he took a big hit.

Chris Redman will enter the game for JPW. Adam Froman's entrance will have to wait.

In other news:

Laurence Sidbury's pressure and a tip by Darrin Walls conspired to provide a trailing Rafael Bush with an interception.

Brandyn Harvey made a terrific, toe-tapping catch of a John Parker Wilson dagger, bringing Brent Grimes darting across the sideline to lobby refs in favor of the completion. Jacquizz Rodgers finally made his debut in the middle of the third -- he's a tougher runner than most would expect.
