J.J. Wilcox tears ACL at first Falcons training camp practice and will miss 2019 season

The return of training camp is welcome in so many ways, but it also brings back the dread specter of potential injuries. It looks like one has hit early this time, as J.J. Wilcox was hobbling off the field during the first morning of practice just a couple of hours into the first day, and we learned this evening that he tore his ACL and will miss the season.
