Found September 17, 2013 on FF Locker Room:

Look for Jonathan Babineaux to attempt to pick up the slack with the loss of Biermann. An already less-than-stellar Atlanta defense really can’t afford this blow.  The post Kroy Biermann Placed On Injured Reserve By Falcons appeared first on FFLockerRoom.
