Detroit Lions cornerback Desmond Trufant has been ruled out with a hamstring injury in Week 7 against the Atlanta Falcons.

Betting Impact:

If there is one area where no teams can afford injuries when playing the Falcons, it is in the secondary. The Lions rank 15th in the league allowing 234.0 passing yards per game, but that number figures to go up against the pass-happy Falcons without Trufant. Atlanta is second in the league with 291.2 passing yards per game. Despite the news of Trufant being ruled out, the Falcons remained 2.5 point home favorites, per BettingPros consensus odds.
