Broncos Vs. Falcons: Christopher Owens In At Nickel Corner

Last Sunday's win did not come without consequence for the Atlanta Falcons, as cornerback Brent Grimes was lost for the season with a torn Achilles tendon.

The injury means that Dunta Robinson will shift from the nickel cornerback to the right cornerback, and Christopher Owens will become the team's new third cornerback.
