The Falcons are down a defensive lineman.

Falcons head coach Arthur Smith announced after Tuesday’s practice that defensive tackle Vincent Taylor ruptured his Achilles. He will miss the entire 2022 season as a result of the injury.

Taylor signed a one-year deal with the Falcons in April and it’s the second straight year where an injury has cost him a significant period of time. Taylor started the opener for the Texans last season, but hurt his ankle and missed the rest of the year.
