The Saints came out with a win over the Falcons Thursday night, but it looks like they lost another offensive lineman.

Rookie offensive tackle Andrus Peat suffered a Grade-2 MCL sprain when another player rolled onto his leg, according to Rand Getlin with the NFL Network.

The injury happened a few plays into the first quarter. It was Peat's second NFL start. He was replaced by veteran offensive lineman Tony Hills, who was recently signed by the team.

The Saints are already thin on the offensive line. Guard Tim Lelito and tackle Terron Armstead did not play against the Falcons.
