Atlanta Falcons rookie safety Shann Schillinger will miss the team's playoff run after fracturing his ankle on Monday night, D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
A sixth-round pick out of Montana in 2010, Schillinger had 8 special teams tackles in 15 games this season.
No roster move to replace Schillinger was immediately known. The 12-3 Falcons haven't made a single roster transaction involving their 53-man roster since placing running back Jerious Norwood on injured reserve on September 21.
"I firmly believe that any man’s finest hour, the greatest fulfillment of all that he holds dear, is that moment when he has worked his heart out in a good cause and lies exhausted on the field of battle – victorious."
