According to D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution,  Falcons linebacker Lofa Tatupu will like miss the start of training camp after suffering a serious pectoral injury this past Thursday while working out.

“Falcons linebacker Lofa Tatupu, who’s trying to make a comeback after sitting out last season, suffered a serious pectoral injury in the weight room this past Thursday and likely will not be available when the team opens training camp on Thursday,” reported Ledbetter.

This will certainly hurt Tatupu’s chances at starting this year.  He was expected to compete in camp, but with this injury he may need to wait for someone else to go down, to have a shot at starting.
