Falcons safety William Moore (calf), defensive tackle Ra’Shede Hageman (concussion) and center/guard Peter Konz (knee) were ruled out of the second exhibition game against the New York Jets by head coach Dan Quinn on Thursday.
The Falcons (1-0) face the Jets (0-1) at 7:30 p.m. at MetLife Stadium.
Also, running back Antone Smith (hamstring) is not expected to play.
Moore and Hagemen suffered their injuries in practice Tuesday. Moore wore an athletic sleeve on his left leg during the team’s walk-through. Konz, who is coming back from offseason knee surgery, has a sleeve on his left leg.
Kemal Ishmael will replace Moore and Jonathan Babineaux will replace Hageman on the starting defense.
