Linebacker Lofa Tatupu Out For Season

The Falcons have announced middle linebacker Lofa Tatupu is out for the season after suffering a pectoral injury in the weight room last week.

After sitting out last season, Tatupu considered retirement before the Falcons signed him to a two-year, $3.6 million deal in March. He was to compete with Akeem Dent for the open middle linebacker spot vacated by Curtis Lofton.

The Falcons brought back veteran linebacker Mike Peterson to offset the loss of Tatupu.
