Clayborn (torn biceps) will miss the rest of the postseason, ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

Clayborn went down in Saturday's divisional-round victory over the Seahawks. As Atlanta's second-highest leader in sacks, his absence downgrades the Falcons' pass rush and will likely result in more playing time for Ra'Shede Hageman and Dwight Freeney.

Clayborn (biceps) won't return to Saturday's divisional-round game versus the Seahawks, Kelsey Conway of the Falcons' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

The pass-rushing specialist hasn't been seen much since tearing the MCL and meniscus in his knee in Week 12, appearing in parts of three (of a possible six) contests. If the Falcons pull off the win Saturday, his status will be monitored closely in advance of the NFC championship game.

EDGE Analysis

Clayborn has been hindered by MCL and meniscus tears since Week 12, logging three DNPs before starting the final two outings of the regular season. During Seattle's first possession Saturday, the pass rusher suffered yet another ailment and could be hard-pressed to return.
