  1. Sam Baker - T - Falcons

    Falcons LT Sam Baker suffered a torn right patellar tendon during Saturday's preseason game and is done for the season.

    It's a big blow for Atlanta, as turnstile Lamar Holmes will enter the starting lineup. No. 6 overall pick Jake Matthews will likely kick from right tackle to left tackle. It's Matthews' more natural position, and he's the future at the position anyway. Baker signed a six-year, $41 million deal with Atlanta in March of 2013 and played in just four games last season. He's likely to go down as one of GM Thomas Dimitroff's biggest blunders. Dimitroff has struggled mightily in recent years to piece together a competent roster.

  2. In the meeting room, Cox accepts and welcomes back-talk from his players. He'd rather have open confrontation than have something stew behind the scenes and end up causing a bigger problem down the line. The players have responded well to it: "At the end of the they, they're men, I'm a man. Again, I just call on my playing days when I always heard from Bill Parcells, don't listen to the tone; hear the message. Sometimes when I'm screaming or cussing or whatever, at the end of the day, they know I've got their backs."

    This is going to make for some interesting TV on Hard Knocks.
