Punter avoids injury

ATLANTA — Atlanta Falcons Coach Dan Quinn says punter Matt Bosher avoided a serious injury to his chest when he was knocked out of Thursday night’s preseason victory over the Cleveland Browns.

Quinn said Friday he doesn’t know if Bosher will be available for next week’s preseason game at Miami. Quinn says the team will hold a workout for another punter, but he expects Bosher’s injury will be a “short-term thing.”

Quinn also said he’ll ask the NFL to review Browns linebacker Tank Carder’s hit on Bosher in Atlanta’s 24-13 victory.

Falcons kicker Matt Bryant was held out with leg tightness.

Linebacker Vic Beasley Jr. was held out with a shoulder injury that Quinn said isn’t related to an injury he played through last season.
