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.
