Hutchins lost for the season
The AJC reports that Falcons cornerback Von Hutchins is lost for the season after undergoing surgery today to repair his broken foot. Hutchins was initially diagnosed with a sprain after injuring himself in the team’s first practice on Saturday morning. But upon getting a second opinion received a more grievous prognosis that it was a Lisfranc fracture and he will be out 4-6 months.
Hutchins will be placed on the injured reserve and will miss the entire season. With him out the lineup, rookie Chevis Jackson likely is viewed as the front-runner to win the nickel cornerback role behind starters Chris Houston and Brent Grimes.
