Falcons coach Dan Quinn confirmed Monday that cornerback Desmond Trufant will miss the remainder of the 2019 season after breaking his forearm during Atlanta's 40-20 victory against the Carolina Panthers.
Trufant exited Sunday's game late in the first half after sustaining the forearm injury, and he left the sidelines early to go to the locker room prior to halftime. He was not back out there with the defense at the start of the third quarter, and reserve cornerback Blidi Wreh-Wilson filled his spot on the unit.
Despite missing four games with a toe injury, Trufant set a new career high with four interceptions this season. The veteran cornerback will finish 2019 with 18 tackles, seven passes defended and four interceptions.
