  • Hooper (knee) isn't practicing Wednesday, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports. Injured in the closing minutes of Sunday's 34-20 loss to Green Bay, the 24-year-old tight end is now in danger of sitting out Week 15 against the Cardinals, though coach Dan Quinn said Monday that Hooper should have a chance to play. No. 2 tight end Logan Paulsen (knee/ankle) returned to practice Wednesday after missing the Week 14 game.

  • Falcons' Austin Hooper: Could play this week
    By RotoWire Staff

    Coach Dan Quinn said Hooper (knee) has a chance to play Week 15 against the Cardinals, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports. Hooper injured his knee toward the end of Sunday's 34-20 loss to Green Bay, ultimately catching four of six targets for 37 yards across 55 snaps (78 percent). The Falcons believe he avoided a long-term injury, but there's still no guarantee he'll be ready for Week 15. No. 3 tight end Eric Saubert is left as the team's only healthy player at his position, with Logan Paulsen (knee/ankle) coming off a Week 14 absence.

  • Falcons' Austin Hooper: Sustains knee injury
    By RotoWire Staff

    Hooper suffered a knee injury in Sunday's 34-20 loss to the Packers, Kelsey Conway of the Falcons' official site reports. Hooper limped off the field on the Falcons' final drive of the game and was deemed questionable to return, but with the contest in the closing stages and already out of reach, he never retook the field. The 24-year-old caught four of six targets for 37 yards, as the Falcons offense struggled to score until the fourth quarter. The specifics of the injury remain unclear, but his status should receive some clarification by the time Atlanta resumes practice Wednesday.

  • Hooper caught all five of his targets, racking up 44 receiving yards and one touchdown during Sunday's 26-16 loss to Baltimore. Hooper has been a steady contributor in the Falcons passing attack over the past four weeks, compiling four or more receptions and five-plus targets in every game, with 24 total catches and two touchdowns over that span. He's been a top-10 play at tight end in most all scoring formats this season, but what's preventing him from becoming an upper-echelon option at the position is an inability to stretch the field. Hooper has only exceeded 60 receiving yards once through 12 outings this season, and he was held to 50 or fewer yards in 15 of 16 appearances last year. Week 14 brings a matchup against a Packers defense that's suffocated tight ends in 2018, allowing just one touchdown to the position all season.

  • Hooper hauled in four of eight targets, picking up 27 receiving yards during Sunday's 22-19 loss to the Cowboys. Hooper endured a ho-hum performance against a Cowboys defense that's struggled at defending the position in 2018 (entered Week 11 allowing the fifth-most tight end receptions). The third-year man was held under 40 yards for the first time since Week 4, while tying his worst catch rate of the season at 50 percent. Outside of three monstrous showings -- a combined 28 catches for 204 yards and two touchdowns against Pittsburgh, Tampa Bay and Cleveland -- Hooper has averaged 3.1 catches and fewer than 35 receiving yards per game. Next comes a Thanksgiving night matchup against a Saints defense that ranks among the NFL's three worst teams with over 295 passing yards allowed per game .
