Falcons' WR Fuller to miss season with knee injury

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Devin Fuller will miss the season with a knee injury, marking the second straight year he's has had a season-ending injury before playing a game.

Fuller, a seventh-round pick from UCLA in 2016, suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament in Friday's practice. Coach Dan Quinn said Saturday Fuller will need season-ending injury after the non-contact injury.

Fuller also missed the 2016 season with a shoulder injury.

Quinn said another season-ending injury for Fuller is ''really disappointing'' and said he wanted to ''give the guy a hug.''
