Jake Matthews, who suffered an ankle injury during Atlanta's win over New Orleans, left the stadium Sunday night in a walking boot. Matthews was originally going to start the season at right tackle, before left tackle Sam Baker suffered a season-ending knee injury. Gabe Carimi replaced Matthews on Sunday and is expected to again this Sunday.
The Falcoholic writes about Carimi:
Gabe Carimi has been taking plenty of reps at left tackle throughout the week. Regardless of his Pro Football Focus grade for Sunday's game, which seemed unduly harsh, I thought Carimi did fine filling in at left tackle on Sunday and I expect him to be better prepared and more comfortable against the Bengals this Sunday.
