FLOWERY BRANCH, Georgia — The Atlanta Falcons have lost center Joe Hawley and right tackle Lamar Holmes to season-ending injuries and also will be without starting safety William Moore for eight games.

The three starters were hurt in Sunday's 41-28 loss at Minnesota. Tuesday's moves leave Atlanta with serious holes to fill before this week's game at the Giants.
