Former Montana State Bobcat Troy Andersen sustains significant injury during Atlanta Falcons’ defeat

Former Montana State standout Troy Andersen, now an inside linebacker for the Atlanta Falcons, faces the possibility of sitting out the remainder of the 2023 NFL season due to a significant injury incurred during Sunday’s game.

Andersen sustained the injury late in the Falcons’ 20-6 loss to the Detroit Lions, affecting his right shoulder and pectoral muscle. Coach Arthur Smith expressed concern over the MRI results, stating on Monday that the prognosis appeared unfavorable. While Smith did not offer a precise timeline for Andersen’s recovery, he acknowledged the likelihood that the young linebacker could be sidelined for the rest of his second professional season.

Smith lamented the unfortunate nature of injuries in the NFL, emphasizing how they affect players across the league: “You hate it. It’s an unfortunate part of the NFL. It stinks,” Smith said. “You guys see it happen all around the league. Nobody wants to see that.
