Reynolds re-signed with the Falcons on Thursday, Ken Rodriguez of Fox 5 Atlanta reports. Reynolds joined the Falcons last offseason to add depth at linebacker, but he ultimately settled in as a key piece on special teams. Expect him to operate in a similar capacity this upcoming season.
Reynolds is slated to start at middle linebacker Sunday, D. Orlando Ledbetter of AJC reports. Reynolds will receive the start due to Deion Jones' projected absence.
Reynolds will enter the starting lineup Sunday against the Lions, Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports. Shea McClellin is set to miss his first game of the season due to a knee injury, paving the way for Reynolds to pick up his first extended snaps of the season. While his placement at middle linebacker should lend itself to plenty of tackle opportunities, Reynolds will need to make good on that production over multiple games before those in IDP leagues look to him for help.
Linebacker LaRoy Reynolds was released by the Jaguars on Saturday, Ryan O'Halloran of the Florida Times-Union reports. Reynolds hadn't seen any snaps on defense through two weeks as had found himself firmly planted behind Dan Skuta and Telvin Smith on the depth chart. He could be a depth addition for a linebacker-needy team.
The Jaguars have ruled out defensive end Andre Branch (groin) and linebacker Khairi Fortt (hamstring) for Sunday's game against the Texans. Linebacker LaRoy Reynolds (neck) and wide receiver Tommy Streeter (abdominal strain) were both deemed as questionable, despite practicing Friday. Meanwhile, quarterback Blake Bortles (right shoulder, left ankle), defensive end Chris Clemons (knee), safety Josh Evans (foot), linebacker Jeremiah George (ankle), running back Toby Gerhart (shoulder) and defensive tackle Sen'Derrick Marks (foot) were ruled out Week 14.
