Lofa Tatupu Suffers Pectoral Injury Prior To Falcons Training Camp

Atlanta Falcons middle linebacker Lofa Tatupu suffered an injury to his pectoral on Friday during a routine workout session.

"At this point, we do not know the extent of the injury, but we expect to have more information early next week." -- Falcons head coach Mike Smith

Tatupu was signed during free agency in March by the Falcons to a two-year, $5.75 million deal after sitting out of the league for a year after not being able to agree to a new contract with the Seattle Seahawks. Tatupu spent six years in Seattle, earning three Pro Bowl nods and one trip to the Super Bowl.

Tatupu has a history with pectoral injuries, as he tore his left pectoral muscle after a collision with teammate Deon Grant back in 2009 as a member of the Seahawks.
