Report: Falcons S Kazee (Achilles) out for season
Atlanta Falcons safety Damontae Kazee suffered a torn left Achilles in Monday night’s loss in Green Bay and will miss the rest of the season, ESPN reported Tuesday.
Kazee was carted off the field during the second quarter of the Falcons’ 30-16 defeat. He was in coverage when he fell to the ground in pain with 5:18 left in the half.
The 2017 fifth-round draft pick started all four games for Atlanta this season, registering 20 tackles and one forced fumble.
Kazee, 27, will be a free agent in March. He intercepted 10 passes during the 2018-19 seasons and has 199 tackles, 13 passes defensed and five forced fumbles in 52 career games (34 starts).
His loss represents a major blow for the winless Falcons, who already were without fellow starting safeties Keanu Neal (hamstring) and Ricardo Allen (elbow) in their three-safety alignment.
