Falcons lose LB Brooks Reed to groin injury; Required surgery will miss 6 weeks

Atlanta announced on Thursday that linebacker Brooks Reed had groin surgery. NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported that Reed is expected to miss six weeks, according to a source close to the player. 

According to, Kroy Biermann will be moved to Reed’s spot:

The “tough blow” is absolutely an understatement. The Falcons have been soft in the middle of their defense for years, and losing Reed will not help. I would expect Kroy Biermann to become the new SAM linebacker until Reed is ready to play, likely until after Reed comes off of the short-term PUP list.
