Brent Grimes Injury: Cornerback Held Out Of Practice With Foot Injury

Atlanta Falcons starting cornerback Brent Grimes was held out of Sunday's training camp practice due to a foot injury:

"He has a foot that is bothering him," Falcons coach Mike Smith said. "We held him out today. We are trying to get him back and ready to go."

Having Grimes sit out Sunday's practice was more of a precautionary reason more than anything else. This injury is not related at all to his knee injury that caused Grimes to miss five games last season, including a playoff game.

With that knee injury, Grimes played in just 12 games last year he had 49 tackles, 37 solo, only one interception but he also was able to break up 14 passes that were thrown is way.
