Atlanta Falcons left guard Elijah Wilkinson will miss Sunday’s game against the Seattle Seahawks due to a personal matter.
Wilkinson, 27, did not practice with the Falcons on Thursday or Friday when the team was in Seattle. After signing as a free agent last season, he started the first two games with Atlanta.
A message left for Wilkinson’s agent was not immediately returned to ESPN.
If Wilkinson leaves, Atlanta will start either Colby Gossett or Suma Edoka in his place. Jalen Mayfield, last year’s starting left guard, is on injured reserve.
Wilkinson beat out Mayfield for the starting job in training camp.
