Marshon Lattimore considered “week-to-week” after going down against Atlanta Falcons

NFL: Atlanta Falcons at New Orleans Saints Derick E. Hingle-USA TODAY Sports

Less than 24 hours after falling to the Atlanta Falcons, news broke that cornerback Marshon Lattimore is considered week-to-week with a hamstring strain.

Lattimore left the game in the second quarter after tweaking his hamstring while in coverage on Julio Jones. Though Jones only had three catches for the day, he was able to get open and nearly take a pass to the endzone right after the former Rookie of the year left the game.

P.J. Williams slid over from the slot to the outside for the injured Lattimore, while rookie Gardner-Johnson took over at the nickel.

The secondary still played well enough to keep the Falcons offense to only 182 yards of passing offense, but the news comes at a time where the Saints’ schedule is heading into division play and will face a few teams who have dangerous receivers. Mike Evans, Curtis Samuel, and Julio Jones for the second time are all on the schedule ahead and could create matchup problems if Lattimore is unable to go.
