Falcons tight end Kyle Pitts left Sunday’s game against the Bears after suffering a knee injury in the third quarter and did not return. While Atlanta went on to defeat Chicago, it sounds like Pitts could be out for a bit.
According to a report from NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, Pitts is believed to have suffered an MCL sprain and will have an MRI on Monday to determine the severity of the injury.
