Falcons G Levitre (triceps) out for season, 3rd player down

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) The Atlanta Falcons have lost offensive guard Andy Levitre to a season-ending triceps injury, the third player to go down with a major injury in the first two weeks of the season.

Levitre left Sunday's victory over the Carolina Panthers with what was initially described as an elbow injury. After further examination, it was determined Tuesday that he's done for the year because of a triceps problem.

Wes Schweitzer will take over Levitre's spot in the starting lineup. The Falcons (1-1) also signed guard Zac Kerin to bolster the depth up front.
