Continuity just a dream for Falcons' battered OL

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) - Ten-year veteran offensive tackle Sean Locklear says he feels like a rookie again after signing with the Falcons this week.

Locklear better learn his new playbook quickly. The Falcons' battered offensive line needs immediate help.

This week's loss of left tackle Sam Baker to a season-ending knee injury is another setback for the Falcons, who play at Tampa Bay on Sunday. There has been little chance for the line to develop continuity.

Atlanta began the year looking to replace center Todd McClure, who retired, and right tackle Tyson Clabo, who was released. Projected starting tackle Mike Johnson's season ended with a leg injury in training camp. There have been frequent adjustments at both tackle spots as Baker missed five games with the bad knee.
