Falcons G Andy Levitre (triceps) ruled out for Saints

By The Associated Press

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) — Atlanta Falcons guard Andy Levitre will miss a game for the first time in his NFL career.

The nine-year veteran won't play Thursday night against the New Orleans Saints because of a triceps injury. Levitre had started 140 consecutive games since entering the league with Buffalo in 2009. He also spent two seasons with Tennessee before being dealt to the Falcons in 2015.

Coach Dan Quinn ruled out Levitre on Tuesday. It's not known how long he will be sidelined.

Levitre was injured in the first quarter of a 14-9 loss to the Minnesota Vikings.

He was replaced by Ben Garland, who will start at left guard when the Falcons (7-5) host the Saints (9-3).
