ATLANTA – Falcons cornerback Kelvin Hayden was just carted to the locker room at the Georgia Dome.
Team officials said he suffered a foot injury and his return is questionable. Hayden has been playing as the team’s nickelback for much of the season. Christopher Owens began the season as the nickelback, but lost the job to Hayden.
It’s likely Owens will now work as the third cornerback, although Dominique Franks also could be an option.
