Atlanta Falcons LG Elijah Wilkinson to miss Sunday game vs. Seattle Seahawks due to a personal matter

Atlanta Falcons left guard Elijah Wilkinson will miss the Sunday game against the Seattle Seahawks because of a personal matter.

Wilkinson, 27, did not practice with the Falcons either Thursday or Friday while the team was in Seattle. He started the first two games with Atlanta after signing as a free agent this past offseason.

A message left for Wilkinson's agent was not immediately returned.

With Wilkinson out, Atlanta will likely start Colby Gossett or Chuma Edoga in his place. Last year's starting left guard, Jalen Mayfield, is on injured reserve.

Wilkinson beat out Mayfield for the starting job in training camp.
