The Atlanta Falcons entered training camp with a veritable all-star team on offense, with the exception of the unproven commodities up front.
The offensive line questions grew more pressing Tuesday, when right tackle Mike Johnson was carted off the field with a left leg injury. The injury was serious enough that Johnson departed the Falcons' facilities in an ambulance, according to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
