Falcons defensive tackle Peria Jerry, the team’s first-round draft pick from Mississippi, will be placed on injured reserve after suffering a season-ending right knee injury in Atlanta’s victory over Carolina.

Jerry’s injury is more bone-related and not a torn ACL.

He should be ready to go by next summer.

Thomas Johnson will move into the starting role, coach Mike Smith said.

Losing Jerry won't be that big of a loss to me.

I think Thomas Johnson is better than Jerry at this point anyways.
