Falcons guard Fusco leaves game with right ankle injury

ATLANTA (AP) — Atlanta Falcons right guard Brandon Fusco has suffered a right ankle injury and won't return to Monday night's game against the New York Giants.

Fusco did not put weight on his right leg as he was helped off the field late in the second quarter. Minutes later, he was driven on a cart to the locker room and was ruled out to return.

Ben Garland took over for Fusco to start the second half. The Falcons already have lost a starting guard, Andy Levitre, to a season-ending arm injury.

Giants cornerback Eli Apple limped off the field following the same second-quarter play. Apple returned to start the second half.
