 ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) -Falcons third-string quarterback D.J. Shockley was carted off the field with 4 minutes remaining in the fourth quarter after spraining his left knee in Atlanta's 13-10 exhibition game win over the Buffalo Bills on Friday.
Falcons coach Bobby Petrino said Shockley will have an MRI exam Sunday to asses the severity of the injury.
``It didn't look good,'' Petrino said. ``I didn't like the way he looked on the field.''
Shockley, a 2006 seventh-round draft pick, was hurt after attempting to cut to the inside of the field on a 10-yard scramble. Shockley's right foot slipped when he planted it at the Buffalo 15-yard line, causing his left leg to twist awkwardly before he was tackled by linebacker Josh Stamer.
Shockley was 4-of-5 for 46 yards passing and added 18 yards rushing on three carries. He was replaced by second-stringer Chris Redman.
``Obviously he's distraught,'' Atlanta quarterback Joey Harrington said. ``That's not anything you like to have happen. It may be a little while before he's able to get going again.''
Shockley didn't play in any Falcons games last season as a rookie.
The Bills also were dealt a blow when backup defensive end Ryan Denney broke a bone in his left foot on the opening kickoff. The injury leaves Buffalo with only three experienced defensive ends - Chris Kelsay, Aaron Schobel and Anthony Hargrove.
Bills coach Dick Jauron didn't give a timeframe of how long Denney will be gone, but he wasn't optimistic.
``At the very least it will be a substantial amount of time,'' he said.
