Langford (undisclosed) was placed on the waived/injured list by the Falcons on Tuesday. Langford joined the Falcons from the team's practice squad in Week 17 of the 2018 campaign with Ito Smith (knee) and Devonta Freeman (groin) both on injured reserve, carrying the ball nine times for 25 yards, though the running back evidently picked up an injury in the process. He will stay with the team, and it gives the Falcons the flexibility to pick up another player, since Langford doesn't count against the 90-man roster.
Langford (undisclosed) was waived/injured by the Falcons on Saturday. Langford joined the Falcons from the team's practice squad in Week 17 of the 2018 campaign with Ito Smith (knee) and Devonta Freeman (groin) both on injured reserve, carrying the ball nine times for 25 yards although the running back evidently picked up an injury in the process. He'll attempt to catch onto a roster prior to training camp.
Langford ran for 25 yards on nine carries during Sunday's 34-32 win against the Buccaneers. In the finale against Tampa Bay, Langford saw his first regular-season snap since 2016 when he was a member of the Bears roster. With Ito Smith (knee) having been placed on injured reserve, Langford was called up from the Falcons practice squad on Dec. 18 before earning 16 of 73 running back snaps during Sunday's contest. Only recently having turned 27 years old, Langford has potential to compete with Brian Hill for the No. 3 job in 2019 if he can put forth an impressive showing in training camp.
Langford (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's Week 16 tilt against the Panthers. The veteran running back was promoted from the practice squad Tuesday in the wake of Ito Smith's (knee) placement on injured reserve, but he apparently won't be needed Sunday behind Tevin Coleman and backup Brian Hill.
Langford was promoted from the Falcons' practice squad to the active roster Tuesday, Jason Butt of The Athletic reports. The Falcons were in desperate need of additional depth in the backfield after rookie Ito Smith (knee) recently joined Devonta Freeman (groin) on injured reserve, resulting in a promotion for Langford. The Michigan State product hasn't seen game action since his 2016 campaign with the Bears, but Langford could earn a few touches immediately as he resides behind Tevin Coleman and Brian Hill on the running back depth chart in Atlanta.
