Chris Owens Injury: Falcons CB Out With Head Injury

The Atlanta Falcons are losing cornerbacks left and right. On Monday night against the Denver Broncos, Chris Owens left the game in the first half with a head injury.

According to Lindsay Jones via twitter, Owens is out at least for the remainder of the evening.

The Falcons already lost Brent Grimes with a torn ACL in their season opener against the Kansas City Chiefs. If Owens does indeed have to sit for a time, it could make Atlanta very thin in the backfield.

Asante Samuel was also shaken up in the game with a neck injury, but he has since returned.

The fourth-year corner out of San Jose State has seen some time in the past three years, playing a reserve role but getting on the field often. In 2011, Owens appeared in 14 games and amassed 35 tackles, three passes defended and a sack.
