Baker suffered the injury in the second quarter on Sunday night versus the New England Patriots. The former USC star declined to elaborate on the problem per team policy, but in all likelihood he will be watching from the sidelines.
Should Baker not be able to give it a go, Ryan Schraeder is listed as the next man up on the depth chart. Schraeder is a 6'7'', 300-pound rookie out of Valdosta State who would be making his first career start.
Atlanta does get a bye following Monday's tilt, so resting Baker might not be the worst move provided the desperate 1-3 Falcons can win without him. After the bye, Atlanta faces the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at the Georgia Dome.
