  • Falcons' Qadree Ollison: Three touches in Week 13

    Ollison had two rushing attempts for seven yards and caught his only target for eight yards during Sunday's 30-17 loss to the Buccaneers.

    Ollison led the team in carries during the Week 11 loss to the Patriots, but he was kept on the practice squad for Week 12 after being sidelined with an illness. The Falcons backfield continues to be a mystery behind Cordarrelle Patterson, as Wayne Gallman, Mike Davis and Ollison have each had sizable roles at certain times and limited action in other games. With Gallman a healthy scratch Week 13, Davis (38 snaps) and Patterson (34) paced the Falcons' running backs in production, while Ollison (13) operated in reserve.

  • Qadree Ollison: Reverted to practice squad

    Ollison was reverted back to Atlanta's practice squad.

    The running back had two rushing attempts for seven yards and a catch for eight yards in the team's Week 13 loss to the Buccaneers. With Cordarrelle Patterson, Mike Davis and Wayne Gallman all available, it appears like Ollison was the odd man out in Atlanta.

  • Falcons' Qadree Ollison: Elevated for Week 13

    Ollison was elevated from Atlanta's practice squad Saturday, Michael Rothstein of ESPN.com reports.

    Ollison led the team in carries in Week 11 against New England but was left on the practice squad for Week 12 after being sidelined with an illness. He won't maintain the primary role for Atlanta against the Buccaneers on Sunday due to the return of Cordarrelle Patterson, though Ollison could overtake both Wayne Gallman and Mike Davis for the primary backup duties.

  • Qadree Ollison: Could get Week 13 call-up

    The Falcons are considering elevating Ollison from the practice squad ahead of Sunday's game against the Buccaneers, D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

    One way or another, a firm resolution on Ollison's status for this weekend should arrive no later than 4 p.m. ET on Saturday, the deadline for teams playing Sunday to make Week 13 roster moves. After missing practice time last week while tending to an illness, Ollison wasn't summoned from the practice squad ahead of the Falcons' eventual win over the Jaguars, but he led Atlanta with nine carries for 34 yards in the team's Week 11 loss to the Patriots while Cordarrelle Patterson was out with an ankle injury. Patterson was productive in his return to the lineup in Jacksonville and looks healthy ahead of Sunday's contest, so Ollison will likely be in line for a bit role out of the backfield if he's added to the roster this week.

  • Qadree Ollison: Healthy again

    Ollison (illness) is back to full health as the Falcons prepare for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers, D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

    Ollison was unavailable Week 12, after being called up from the practice squad (and leading the team with nine carries) the week before in a loss to New England. Of course, Cordarrelle Patterson sat out against the Patriots and then returned for Sunday's win over the Jaguars, so it isn't clear Ollison would have had a role even if he had been healthy this past weekend. Head coach Arthur Smith mentioned after the Week 11 game that he wanted to get Ollison more carries, though Smith may have just meant while Patterson was out. It remains to be seen if Ollison will be summoned from the practice squad to replace a struggling Mike Davis as Atlanta's No. 2 back behind Patterson down the stretch.

  • Qadree Ollison: Won't suit up Week 12

    The Falcons didn't elevate Ollison (illness) from the practice squad prior to Saturday's deadline for Week 12 roster moves, meaning he won't be eligible to play Sunday against the Jaguars.

    Ollison emerged as a potential pickup in deeper leagues after he led the Falcons with nine carries for 34 yards while playing exactly half of the offensive snaps in last week's 25-0 loss to the Patriots. Even with the Falcons' No. 1 back, Cordarrelle Patterson (ankle), listed as questionable for the second week in a row and uncertain to play against Jacksonville, Ollison wasn't deemed an option for Week 12 after he missed every practice this week while battling a non-COVID-19-related illness. If Patterson winds up on the inactive list for Sunday's game, the Falcons will turn to a combination of Mike Davis and Wayne Gallman to lead their ground attack.

  • Qadree Ollison: Likely out with illness

    Ollison missed practice this week with a non-COVID-19 illness and isn't expected to play in Sunday's game against Jacksonville, D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

    With Cordarrelle Patterson (ankle) out for last Thursday's 25-0 loss to New England, the Falcons brought Ollison up from their practice squad and gave him nine carries and three targets (producing 36 scoreless yards) on 48 percent snap share. Ollison reverted back to the practice squad after the game, and it isn't clear whether he'd have had a Week 12 role if not for the illness. Patterson is listed as questionable for the game in Jacksonville, leaving Mike Davis, Wayne Gallman and Caleb Huntley (practice squad) as Atlanta's healthy running backs.

  • Qadree Ollison: Should see more carries

    Falcons head coach Arthur Smith said Wednesday that Ollison has "earned the right for more carries," Josh Kendall of The Athletic reports.

    With Cordarrelle Patterson (ankle) out for last week's loss to the Patriots, Ollison was called up from the practice squad and ended up leading the team in carries (nine for 34 yards) while playing 48 percent of the Falcons' offensive snaps. Mike Davis saw just as much playing time but took only three carries, and he's now down to 3.2 yards per tote on the season, potentially opening the door for Patterson to have a new backfield partner. That said, it'll likely be tough to get a read on Ollison's role ahead of Sunday's game in Jacksonville, and he might not even have one if Patterson returns to the lineup. Following the Week 11 game, Ollison reverted to the Falcons' practice squad, so Atlanta would have to either sign him to the 53-man roster or elevate him again by Saturday to make him eligible to play Sunday.

  • Falcons' Qadree Ollison: Surprise rushing leader Thursday

    Ollison carried nine times for 34 yards and gained zero yards on two receptions Thursday in the Falcons' 25-0 loss to the Patriots. He reverted to the Falcons' practice squad Friday.

    Elevated from the practice squad for the second time this season, Ollison ended up taking on a larger role than expected out of an Atlanta backfield that was without top option Cordarrelle Patterson (ankle). Though Mike Davis (three carries for one yard, three catches for 20 yards) picked up the start, Ollison handily outproduced him on the ground and saw the same amount of snaps (26). Atlanta could bring Ollison back from the practice squad if Patterson isn't ready to play in the team's upcoming game next weekend in Jacksonville, but the former won't make for a compelling fantasy option even if he replicates his Week 11 workload. Ollison doesn't present much of a threat as a pass catcher and is averaging just 2.7 yards on 32 career carries.

  • Falcons' Qadree Ollison: Elevated as COVID-19 replacement

    Ollison was elevated from Atlanta's practice squad as a COVID-19 replacement for Josh Andrews on Thursday, Tori McElhaney of the Falcons' official site reports.

    Whether Ollison suits up for Thursday's game against the Patriots will likely depend on the status of Cordarrelle Patterson (ankle), who is viewed as a game-time decision. Even if Patterson sits, Ollison's role would likely be limited with Mike Davis and Wayne Gallman both ahead of him on the running back depth chart.

  • Qadree Ollison: Reverts to practice squad

    Ollison reverted to the Falcons' practice squad Monday.

    Ollison joined Atlanta early in September and was elevated to the Falcons' active roster for the first time this season in Week 9. The 2019 fifth-found pick will likely go back to his reserve role on Atlanta's practice squad, barring any injuries.

  • Falcons' Qadree Ollison: Bumped up from practice squad

    Ollison was elevated to the Falcons' active roster Saturday, Aaron Wilson of Sportstalk 790 Houston reports.

    Ollison signed with the practice squad Sept. 7, but he had not been called up to the active roster this season before Saturday. The 2019 fifth-round selection of the Falcons has appeared in 11 games between 2019 and 2020, getting 23 carries for 53 yards and four touchdowns.
