ATLANTA (AP) A man was injured in a fight outside the Georgia Dome and taken to nearby Grady Hospital following Atlanta's loss to San Francisco in the NFC title game.

Georgia Dome spokesman Jason Kirksey emailed a statement to The Associated Press Sunday saying an altercation occurred in a parking lot outside the dome at 6:40 p.m.

The 35-year-old's name was not released. The statement says he is in stable condition and that it is unclear ``if anyone involved in the altercation attended the game.'' Georgia Dome and Atlanta police ``are investigating the incident.''

WSB-TV reported a Falcons fan and a 49ers fan argued after game and the Atlanta fan punched San Francisco fan, who pulled out a knife. They reported one of the two men was stabbed in the neck.
