NFL Atlanta Falcons Rookie Defensive End Injures Wrist

Dr Pruzansky | August 11, 2014

Atlanta Falcons rookie defensive end Ra’Shede Hageman took his frustrations a little too far and now has a hairline fracture of his wrist.

The rookie defensive end, who is battling for a reserve spot on the roster, got into a tussle with Center Joe Hawley, resulting in a wrist injury for Hageman. Hageman did not return to the practice field.

Falcon’s medical staff did not comment on how long Hageman would be out, but the rookie does plan to play with it casted. It appeared not to be fractured, and was probably a ligament tear.
