Position Listing
DeMarcus Van Dyke
The Chiefs have announced their final round of cuts and other moves to reach the league-mandated roster of 53 players.

Among the offensive players let go are fullback Jordan Campbell, wide receivers Fred Williams and Mark Harrison, guard Ricky Henry, tackle J'Marcus Webb and running back Charcandrick West.

The defensive players gone from the roster are safeties Jonathon Amaya and Malcolm Bronson, linemen Dominique Hamilton, Kyle Love and Kona Schwenke, linebackers Alonzo Highsmith, Devan Walker and Nico Johnson and cornerbacks Justin Rogers and DeMarcus Van Dyke .

The Chiefs have also placed Tyler Bray and Kyle Williams on IR and Mike Catapano on the non-football injury list.

Ryan Schraeder
The Falcons revealed second-year offensive lineman Ryan Schraeder will be starting at right tackle in Week 10 at Tampa Bay.

Injuries have decimated the Falcons’ offensive line in 2014, which has resulted in an inconsistent offense. 

Mohamed Sanu
Sanu (groin) was a full practice participant Friday and does not have an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Chargers.

Sanu's mid-week addition to the injury report initially caused some concern, but he still managed a limited practice Thursday and a full showing Friday, setting him up to fill his usual role as the No. 2 WR against a depleted San Diego secondary. He drew double-digit targets for the first time all season in last week's loss to the Seahawks, catching five passes for 47 yards and a touchdown -- his first score since Week 1. Sanu does rank second on the team in both targets (36) and receptions (21), but it's a distant No. 2 behind offensive centerpiece Julio Jones.

Matt Schaub
Schaub completed eight of 12 passes for 78 yards in Thursday's preseason game against the Browns.

Schaub completed 10 of 15 passes for 179 yards in the first preseason game, and while Thursday's performance was far less impressive, there's been no indication he's facing any real pressure for the No. 2 quarterback job. Starter Matt Ryan hasn't missed a game since 2009.

Matt Simms
Simms finished 10-of-13 for 136 yards and a touchdown in Thursday's preseason win over the Browns.

Simms is battling Matt Schaub for the right to back up Matt Ryan, but it will take more than one decent performance to supplant the veteran. His statline is encouraging, nonetheless.

Josh Keyes
Keyes was released from the Bucs' practice squad Tuesday, Jenna Laine of ESPN.com reports.

Keyes' yo-yo season continues, with the second-year linebacker now having seen two stints apiece on the practice squad and active roster for the Bucs. Given his familiarity with the team's system, it wouldn't be surprising to see Keyes on speed dial should the team need some reinforcements at linebacker at some point.

Chris Chester
The Falcons signed veteran offensive guard Chris Chester to a one-year deal on Friday, per nfl.com.

The Falcons were able to sign Chester after they released linebacker Prince Shembo, who was charged with aggravated animal cruelty.

Chester was cut by the Redskins earlier this week after he played 64 consecutive games for the organization.

William Moore
Moore was released by the Falcons on Monday, Adam Caplan of ESPN reports.

Moore has managed just two complete 16-game seasons in his seven-year career, and 2015 wasn't one of them. Limited to 11 appearances due to groin and ankle concerns, he was eventually placed on injured reserve as a result of the latter injury, but not before totaling 51 tackles (38 solo), two interceptions, and one forced fumble. While he turns 31 in the offseason, he likely can offer safety depth to another organization, as long as he remains healthy.

Davis Tull
The Saints made a number of changes to their roster on Saturday, per ESPN.com.

Running back Tim Hightower and offensive lineman Mike McGlynn were cut. Linebacker Davis Tull, who is nursing a shoulder injury, was put on the injured reserve.

New Orleans also added safety Don Jones , wide receiver Seantavius Jones and fullback Toben Opurum to the active roster from the practice squad.

Mike Person
The Falcons announced Tuesday that they have agreed to a deal with offensive lineman Mike Person. A four-year veteran, Person saw his first extended action last season with the Rams, playing in all 16 games.
Tyler Starr
The following players were ruled inactive for the Falcons in Week 17 against Carolina: cornerback Ricardo Allen, safety Charles Godfrey, running back Steven Jackson, defensive end Stansly Maponga, quarterback Sean Renfree, tackle Jonathan Scott and linebacker Tyler Starr.

Jackson entered this week as questionable after suffering a quadriceps injury against New Orleans in Week 16. Jacquizz Rodgers and rookie Devonta Freeman will share the load. Jackson could return to action in the postseason, if Atlanta defeat Carolina on Sunday.

Undisclosed - Injured Reserve
D.J. Tialavea
The Falcons have announced the signing of running back Michael Ford and tight end DJ Tialavea. They have also waived/injured tight end Beau Gardner and released wide receiver Freddie Martino.

Ford earned some playing time on special teams for Chicago in 2013. Tialavea played on the Buffalo practice squad a year ago.

Ben Garland
The Broncos have signed exclusive-rights free agent tackle Paul Cornick and guard Ben Garland, per the Baltimore Sun.

This season will be Cornick's fourth with the Broncos while Garland will play his fifth with the team.
Collin Mooney
Mooney provided fullback depth for the Falcons in 2015

Mooney has one year left on his contract, but that doesn't mean his roster spot his safe. He'll have to prove he could handle the full time duties in the event Patrick DiMarco went down with an injury in order to secure a roster spot in 2016.

Keanu Neal
Neal (knee) logged a full practice Friday, and is on track to play Sunday against the Chargers.

Neal was limited during Thursday's practice, but returned in full form Friday. He figures to start at strong safety again for Sunday's contest.

Austin Hooper
Hooper was held without a target in Sunday's loss to the Seahawks.

Hooper has only seen more than one target in one game this season, so he hasn't been able to get in much of a rhythm in the offense. He'll look to bounce back Week 7 against the Chargers.

A.J. Hawk
Hawk is signing with the Falcons, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.

With Sean Weatherspoon (Achilles) ruled out for the season, Hawk will provide additional depth at linebacker. Hawk is unlikely to get enough playing time to warrant IDP consideration.

Carter Bykowski
The Vikings announced Monday they waived tackle Carter Bykowski. They also placed cornerback Josh Robinson (pectoral) on the PUP list, which means he will miss the first six weeks of the season.
Brian Poole
No Updates
Ricardo Allen
Allen has signed his exclusive rights tender with the Falcons, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Allen had an impressive sophomore season in 2015, recording 69 total tackles, good for third on the team, and three interceptions, leading all Falcons in that category. The safety was one of the lone bright spots for a weak Atlanta run defense and helped the Falcons finish seventh in fantasy points allowed to quarterbacks in 2015 with savvy play in the secondary. Allen has the potential for a breakout campaign in 2016 as he continues to improve in defensive coordinator Richard Smith's 4-3 scheme.

Adrian Clayborn
Clayborn (shoulder) will play in Sunday's tilt with the Falcons.

Considering Clayborn returned to practice in full on Friday, he should be ready to go on Sunday with no restrictions. While he's not in the starting lineup, look for Clayborn to be on the field in select packages.

Cliff Matthews
Matthews was signed by the Falcons on Wednesday.

The Falcons had an open roster spot for Matthews after releasing veteran safety Dashon Goldson, who had been plagued by a hamstring issue. Matthews was a member of the team during the 2012, 2013, and 2014 season but recorded a combined 25 total tackles in 32 games.

Jonathan Babineaux
Babineaux is in the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers after missing Thursday's practice due to a non-injury-related issue.

As expected, Babineaux will be ready for Week 1 as he returned for Friday's practice after his brief absence. The veteran will start at defensive tackle alongside Grady Jarrett.

Eric Weems
Wide receiver Eric Weems has agreed to a new two-year contract with the Falcons, according to a report by ESPN.com's Vaughn McClure

Weems made $730,000 last season, when he had 10 catches for 102 yards and two touchdowns for the Falcons. He was scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent on March 10. 

Deji Olatoye
The Chiefs signed rookie defensive back Deji Olatoye to their practice squad. He was waived by the Ravens in late August.
Robert Alford
Alford picked off two passes, one of which he returned for a touchdown, and posted three tackles Sunday against the Panthers.

The interceptions were the first two on the year for Alford, leaving him the fourth-year cornerback one short of his career high. However, this was the second time in the last two years that he's taken one of those picks to the house. In addition, he's averaging 5.25 tackles per game which puts him on pace for a career-high in that category. Based on the numbers he's posted in three-plus years in the league, he isn't likely to post big enough numbers to be rostered in most IDP leagues.

Levine Toilolo
Toilolo caught three balls for 69 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's loss to the Seahawks.

Toilolo had been held without a catch in four of his five games entering Sunday, but he was able to find a few holes in Seattle's secondary, including on a 46-yard touchdown reception. He's still the third tight end option in Atlanta, so it's unlikely he'll continue to produce lines like this in the future.

Derrick Shelby
Shelby (calf) was placed on the IR on Tuesday.

Shelby suffered a calf injury in the fourth quarter of Sunday's loss to the Seahawks, effectively ending the 27-year-old's season. In six games this season, he recorded eight tackles (six solo) and one pass deflection. Expect veteran Jonathan Babineaux to see an increase in reps, with Courtney Upshaw now serving as the only healthy reserve defensive tackle on the roster.

Calf - Injured Reserve
LaRoy Reynolds
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.

J.D. McKissic
No Updates
Tom Compton
The Redskins announced Friday the release of defensive end Stephen Bowen and the re-signing of tackle Tom Compton.

Bowen played eight games in 2014, totaling 11 tackles. In four seasons with the Redskins, he totaled 96 tackles with seven sacks. By releasing Bowen, the Redskins will save $5.52 million in cap space, according to the Washington Post.

Compton has spent all three years with Washington, starting nine of 16 games in 2014.

Jacob Tamme
Tamme caught two balls for 16 yards in Sunday's loss to the Seahawks.

This was Tamme's fourth straight game under 30 yards receiving. He does have two touchdowns in six games, but the yards just haven't been there this season. He's in a great offense, but Matt Ryan spreads the ball around too much for Tamme to get consistent looks.

Tevin Coleman
Coleman carried five times for 10 yards and added one catch (on two targets) for seven yards in Sunday's loss to the Seahawks.

Coleman had a rough go of it Sunday, watching Devonta Freeman receive a majority of the rushing load and gaining only two yards-per-carry against a stout Seahawks run defense. It remains to see whether Sunday's game is an anomaly in what has been a very strong season for Coleman, but his Week 7 matchup is surely inviting, as the Chargers were allowing the second-most standard fantasy points per game in the league to running backs coming into Week 6. Even more importantly for Coleman, who sees a lot of work on passing downs for Atlanta, is the fact that San Diego is ceding nine receptions and 69 yards per game to opposing backs this season.

Taylor Gabriel
Gabriel (concussion) is expected to be able to return for Week 8's game against the Packers, ESPN's Vaughn McClure reports.

Gabriel hasn't practiced this week due to his concussion, which will certainly see him miss Sunday's game against the Chargers. However, coach Dan Quinn anticipates Gabriel's absence to be relatively short-lived, as he should be back available next weekend. While Gabriel's progress through the league protocol will ultimately determine whether that timetable is realized, Justin Hardy and Aldrick Robinson should split his vacated snaps in the meantime.

Concussion - Did Not Practice on Friday. Out for Week 7 vs. San Diego
Deion Jones
Jones (ankle) was not listed on Wednesday's injury report, Vaughn McClure of ESPN reports.

Jones was limited at practice last week before ultimately being removed from the final injury report. He ended up playing in Sunday's loss to the Seahawks, and recorded six tackles in the contest. He appears to be on track to play again in Week 7.

Desmond Trufant
Trufant (hip) returned to practice on Sunday, Vaughn McClure of ESPN reports.

Trufant had missed the last few Falcons practices with a minor hip injury, likely more as a precaution than a necessity. Now that he's returned he'll be expected to jump back in line with the first team defense.

Brooks Reed
Reed (groin) was a full participant at the Falcons' practice Friday.

Reed was limited throughout the week, but returned to Friday's practice in full form. Barring any setbacks, he should be good to start at right defensive end in Sunday's tilt with the Chargers.

Jalen Collins
Head coach Dan Quinn expects Collins to be active Sunday against the Chargers, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

Handed a four-game suspension to begin the season, Collins has since been held out of two games, perhaps in an effort to get a few weeks of practice under his belt. However, even if he avoids the inactive list Sunday, he'll merely be one of the Falcons' reserve cornerbacks.

Alex Mack
Browns center Alex Mack has been cleared to participate in training camp drills, reports ESPN.com. Mack is recovering from a broken leg, which ended his season in Week 6.
Devin Fuller
The Falcons placed Fuller (shoulder) on the IR on Monday,

The Falcons drafted Fuller out of LSU in the seventh-round of this years draft. The Rookie impressed early on in the preseason recording 66 yards and a touchdown in his first two games before injuring his shoulder in the team's third game against the Dolphins. The Saints had hoped he could earn a spot returning kicks heading into the season.

Shoulder - Injured Reserve
Josh Perkins
Perkins is inactive for Sunday's game at the Raiders.

Perkins' absence projects as a coach's decision, but more updates are likely to come in the next couple of days.

Philip Wheeler
The Falcons have re-signed Wheeler.

Wheeler, who recorded 29 tackles and a sack in nine games for the Falcons this past season, may be off the IDP radar these days, but retaining him bolsters the depth situation in Atlanta's linebacking corps.

Terron Ward
Ward was released by the Falcons on Thursday.

Ward was a clear third on the depth chart at the running back position, so the Falcons felt comfortable removing him from the roster to open up a spot for another player. He is not eligible to be added to the practice squad having suited up for 13 games last season, but he figures to be the top option if the Falcons need to add another running back at any point.

Ankle - Questionable for Week 7 vs. San Diego
Wes Schweitzer
No Updates
Travis Howard
The Giants trimmed their roster by two Wednesday night. 

According to the New York Daily News, the Giants waived offensive tackle Rogers Gaines and cornerback Travis Howard. Both players were placed on injured reserve in 2014. 

Andy Levitre
Levitre (knee) was removed from Atlanta's final Week 6 injury report.

Levitre went through the full gamut at practice this week, sitting out Wednesday, being limited on Thursday, and practicing in full on Friday. He'll be expected to start without limitation in Sunday's game against Seattle.

Courtney Upshaw
Upshaw agreed to terms on a contract with the Falcons on Friday.

The details of the signing remain a bit unclear, but the 6-foot-2, 272-pound outside linebacker specializes in stuffing the run, but the bulkiness keeps him from becoming an elite linebacker. He will need to transition from a 3-4 to a 4-3 outside linebacker with the move to Atlanta, which will result in him serving in coverage more often. Upshaw collected 51 tackles (29 solo) last season, starting 15 of 16 games after Terrell Suggs suffered a torn Achilles, and will look to build on that to secure a starting job again in 2016.

Ra'Shede Hageman
Hageman was charged with three misdemeanors stemming from a domestic violence case in March, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Hageman's charges come from an alleged incident with the mother of his child and include interfering with a call for emergency help, battery family violence and cruelty to children in the third degree. According to the report, the NFL has been in contact with the Falcons regarding the situation. A second-round pick in 2014, Hageman was inactive for the Falcons' season-opening loss Sunday.

Kemal Ishmael
Ishmael racked up 10 total tackles (four solo) in Sunday's win over the Broncos.

He also had a pass defensed on the day. Ishmael has been a reliable tackle option for the Falcons, averaging eight tackles a game this season. He has 10 more tackles than anyone else on the defense so far this season.

Chris Mayes
Mayes (foot) has been placed on the Falcons' injured reserve list.

Dealing with a foot injury he suffered on Monday, Mayes had been been placed on the team's waived/injured list, but cleared waivers and will now be stashed on the Falcons' IR.

Foot - Injured Reserve
Joe Vellano
Paul Worrilow
Worrilow (groin) will play against the Chargers on Sunday.

Worrilow hasn't played since Week 2, when he needed to go under the knife to repair a groin injury. However, he's now buried on the depth chart and may struggle to earn playing time.

Grady Jarrett
Jarrett recorded 24 tackles and a sack in his first season with the Falcons.

While the numbers don't jump off the page, he outperformed a lot of rookie fifth-rounders this season. He could push some of the elder defensive lineman for playing time in the coming years.

De'Vondre Campbell
Campbell (ankle) was a full participant at Wednesday's practice, Vaughn McClure of ESPN reports.

Jones returned to the field in Sunday's loss to the Seahawks after a four game absence, and recorded three tackles in the process. He appears to have not suffered any type of setback, as he was able to practice in full on Wednesday.

Jake Matthews
The Falcons had two offensive linemen cleared to practice on Thursday. 

Left tackle Jake Matthews, recovering from offseason foot surgery, will be able to participate in the team's first practice of training camp on Friday. His reps may be limited, however.

"It feels good," Matthews said, per the Atlanta Journal Constitution. "I'm ready to go. I'm cleared to do anything. When we start tomorrow, I will be out there and playing. I'm excited. It's been awhile." 

Right guard Jon Asamoah was also cleared to begin practice. He suffered an ankle injury in the offseason. 

Devonta Freeman
Freeman rushed 12 times for 40 yards and added three receptions for 10 yards in Sunday's loss to the Seahawks.

Almost half of Freeman's production came on an 18-yard scamper in the third quarter, so it was almost an even quieter day for the third-year back. However, struggles were to be expected for the Falcons' run game Sunday, as the Seahawks were allowing only 3.4 yards-per-carry coming into the contest. Perhaps the better news for Freeman owners is that Tevin Coleman received only six touches compared to Freeman's 15, but the two are still expected to split action going forward. Up next for the Falcons is a matchup with the Chargers, who were allowing 23 ESPN standard fantasy points per game to opposing running backs coming into Week 6.

Tyson Jackson
Jackson racked up 31 tackles in 16 games for the Falcons in 2015.

This is the second consecutive season that Jackson has been sackless. He was never a dominant pass rusher with the Chiefs, but he did have seven combined sacks in his final two years in Kansas City. He still has three years left on his contract, but the Falcons will likely need to see a little more out of Jackson if he wants to stay on the roster for three more years.

Sean Weatherspoon
Weatherspoon (achilles) has been placed on the injured reserve.

Weatherspoon was placed on the injured reserve after rupturing his right achilles in Week 4's win over Carolina. The Falcons have signed AJ Hawk to attempt to fill Weatherspoon's shoes at linebacker.

Achilles - Injured Reserve
Justin Hardy
Hardy caught three balls for 30 yards in Sunday's loss to Seattle.

It's nice to see Hardy in the box score after being held without a target the week before, but it's still a modest stat line. Julio Jones and Mohamed Sanu are still the top receiving threats in this offense.

Nick Williams
Williams was released by the Falcons on Sunday, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

Williams participated in 14 games for the Falcons during his 2015 campaign, posting 17 receptions for 159 yards and two touchdowns. He was expected to be a bit buried on the wide receiver depth chart heading into the upcoming regular season and with the Falcons picking up fellow wide receiver Taylor Gabriel off of waivers on Sunday, Williams became expendable and was released. He'll head to the free agent market and could get some looks considering he's just 25 years old.

Akeem King
King recorded one tackle in five games of limited work in his rookie season.

The Falcons have a crowded secondary, and it's likely that King will need to make his presence felt on special teams if he wants to secure a roster spot for years to come.

Undisclosed - Injured Reserve
Robenson Therezie
No Updates
C.J. Goodwin
Goodwin (hamstring) will not play Sunday against the Chargers, the Centre Daily Times reports.

Goodwin went down last week against the Seahawks. His absence opens the door for Jalen Collins to see his first chance at significant playing time this season.

Hamstring - Did Not Practice on Friday. Out for Week 7 vs. San Diego
Sharrod Neasman
No Updates
Matt Ryan
Ryan completed 27-of-42 passes for 335 yards, one touchdown and one interception in Sunday's loss to the Seahawks. He added one rush for two yards.

Ryan struggled a bit in the first half, throwing for only 93 yards with the Falcons falling into a 17-3 deficit by halftime. However, he was part of a resilient second-half Atlanta comeback, leading the Falcons to 21 unanswered points and throwing for 220 yards and three touchdowns in the third quarter alone. Ryan would eventually throw a crucial fourth-quarter interception that would lead to an eventual game-winning field goal for Seattle, but the mistake was not indicative of his performance as a whole. Opposing quarterbacks had only been averaging 8.8 ESPN standard fantasy points per game against the Seahawks coming into Week 6, fewest in the league, but the veteran quarterback scorched them for 21 in a road game Sunday. He will remain a solid QB1 as the Falcons head home to face the Chargers in Week 7.

Julio Jones
Jones hauled in 7-of-9 targets for 139 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's loss to the Seahawks.

Jones showed again why he is considered one of the best receivers in the game Sunday. He got wide open on a 36-yard touchdown from Matt Ryan in the third quarter, and consistently burned Richard Sherman and the stout Seattle secondary. Jones could have had an even bigger day if he was able to haul in what would have been an extraordinary one-handed catch in the final moments of the game. The resurgent Falcons offense has meant less constant attention for Jones, but he remains the top weapon in an offense that can't seem to be stopped by anyone, including the Broncos and Seahawks in back-to-back weeks. He will be a solid WR1 against the Chargers in Week 7.

Matt Bosher
Bosher was a full participant at Friday's practice.

Bosher sat out of practice both Wednesday and Thursday, but given that he practiced in full Friday it seems like he will play this week.

Dwight Freeney
Freeney recorded a sack and four tackles Sunday against the Broncos.

Even at 36-years-old, Freeney still has an amazing ability to get to the quarterback. The pass-rushing specialist has recorded a sack in each of his last three games, and fantasy owners in need of help in that category would be wise to take a look and consider adding him to their roster.

Vic Beasley
Beasely racked up eight total tackles and 3.5 sacks in Sunday's win over the Broncos.

Beasely tore through Denver's offensive line with ease on Sunday, and he now leads the team with 4.5 sacks on the season. His tackle numbers were also impressive, meaning he's certainly earning more value in IDP formats that award points for tackles.

Josh Harris
Steelers running backs Josh Harris and Ben Tate were able to find little running room in Saturday's 30-17 loss to Baltimore. Harris ran nine times for 25 yards while Tate had five carries for 19 yards.

As a team, Pittsburgh managed just 68 yards on 19 carries in relief of star running back Le'Veon Bell, who missed Saturday's game with a knee injury.

Patrick DiMarco
DiMarco (shoulder) fully participated in Friday's practice.

DiMarco was limited in previous practices throughout the week, but was able to get a full one in Friday. He has no injury status listed for Sunday's matchup with the Chargers, so he should be expected to take the field.

Aldrick Robinson
Robinson was held without a catch in Sunday's win over the Broncos.

Not only was he held without a catch, Robinson wasn't targeted at all throughout the day. He's in a great offense, but his value is extremely limited if the ball never comes his way.

Matt Bryant
Bryant (hamstring) is listed as active Sunday in Denver, Kelsey Conway of the Falcons' official site reports.

With 40 points on the season, Bryant currently sits third in scoring, but the Broncos' defense is ranked fifth in points allowed (16) per game, so opportunities may be few and far between for the 15-year veteran.
