Chris Owens Injury: Falcons CB Out Remainder Of Game With Head Injury

Falcons cornerback Chris Owens left Monday night's contest in the second quarter with an apparent head injury. Atlanta will be without him for the remainder of the game:

Atlanta lost Pro Bowl CB Brent Grimes for the season during their Week 1 win in Kansas City and starting CB Asante Samuel left Monday's game briefly with a shoulder injury, though he returned one series later.

The Falcons now are down to just four cornerbacks -- Samuel, Dunta Robinson, Dominique Franks and Robert McClain, who intercepted Manning in the first half -- for the remainder of this Monday Night Football game. Atlanta safeties William Moore and Thomas DeCoud both had first quarter interceptions of Manning, and they may see more coverage duties in the second half to help out a depleted cornerback corps.
