Tamme caught one pass off of three targets for 16 yards in Sunday's loss to the Colts.

Sunday snapped Tamme's five-game streak of at least five targets. The reduction in Tamme's role corresponded with Leonard Hankerson's most targets since Week 4 and and Roddy White's most targets of the season. In the week or so before the Falcons' bye, Tamme was emerging as a legitimate starting-caliber tight end. The Falcons' emphasis on its second and third receivers following the bye, however, should suspend those notions at least temporarily so that it can be determined whether the change was game-specific or Atlanta's offense's new look.
