  • Falcons' Tyeler Davison: Activated by Atlanta

    The Falcons activated Davison (undisclosed) from the reserve/COVID-19 list Friday, Scott Bair of the Falcons' official site reports.

  • Falcons' Tyeler Davison: Placed on COVID-19 list

    Davison (undisclosed) was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Sunday.

  • Falcons' Tyeler Davison: Starts 15 games in 2020

    Davison, who collected three tackles during Sunday's 44-27 loss to the Buccaneers, closed out the 2020 season with 36 tackles, two tackles for loss and half a sack over 16 games.

    Davison remained durable during his second season as a Falcon, just as he has been throughout his six-year NFL career. Since entering the league as a fifth-round draft choice of New Orleans in 2015, the Fresno State standout has missed just three of a possible 96 regular-season games. He has started 27 times the past two seasons for Atlanta, after earning 12-plus starts during each of his final three years with the Saints. Davison inherited a considerable workload of 32.5 defensive snaps per game this season, but his 36 tackles represent a step back from the career high of 55 he collected last year. He's under contract with Atlanta for two more seasons at an average cap hit of $4.8 million per year.

  • Falcons' Tyeler Davison: Ready to rock

    Davison (ankle) was a full participant during Thursday's practice, Vaughn McClure of reports.

    Davison appears ready to play in Week 3 after he put in limited practice Wednesday. The 28-year-old has seen 75 defensive snaps for the Falcons this season, and now that he appears back to full health, he'll be expected to fill the same depth role for Sunday's contest against Chicago.

  • Falcons' Tyeler Davison: Limited Wednesday

    Davison (ankle) was a limited participant during Wednesday's practice session, Jason Butt of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

    The former Saint played two-thirds of the defensive snaps Week 1 against Seattle, but his workload was reduced to 41 percent Sunday during a loss to the Cowboys. Davison has since been designated with an ankle injury and his status for Sunday's showdown against the Bears remains uncertain. David Montgomery has gotten out to a hot start for Chicago with 146 rushing yards on 29 carries, while Tarik Cohen has plugged his way to 4.4 yards per carry on 12 attempts thus far on the season. Davison would factor in as a key piece to slowing down those two backs if he indeed ends up being active for the game.

    Davison and reserve quarterback Danny Etling became the fourth and fifth Falcons to be placed on the list after testing positive for COVID-19 or having recent contact with someone who tested positive. Once he's removed from the list, Davison will serve as a key cog on the interior of Atlanta's defensive line.

  • Falcons' Tyeler Davison: Enjoys career year with Falcons

    Davison accounted for 55 total tackles, four tackles for loss, a sack and a fumble recovery across 16 appearances for Atlanta in 2019.

    The former Saint assimilated well to his new squad, obliterating his previous career high in tackles by 24, tying his personal best in stuffs behind the line of scrimmage, and starting 12-plus games for a fourth straight year. Davison registered just two starts between Weeks 1 and 6, but he closed out the year with 10 straight starts during his debut campaign with the Falcons. After fielding an average of 35.5 defensive snaps per game for Atlanta in 2019, he now becomes an unrestricted free agent.

  • Falcons' Tyeler Davison: Picks up first sack of 2019

    Davison tallied a pass deflection and collected four combined tackles, including one sack, during Sunday's 27-20 loss to the Seahawks.

    The 27-year-old Davison helped the Falcons finally generate some pressure, as Atlanta's defense logged two sacks against Seattle after going four straight games without registering a single one. Besides the sack, Davison has provided IDP value through other avenues as well, collecting a tackle for loss in two consecutive games and picking up four-plus tackles in four of his past five outings. He and the reeling Falcons defense can now catch a collective breath during the Week 9 bye before returning to the field Nov. 10 to take on a Saints offensive attack that has amassed 31 or more points over three of its past four appearances.

  • Falcons' Tyeler Davison: Impactful against Vikings

    Davison collected a team-high eight tackles, including one tackle for loss, during Sunday's 28-12 loss to the Vikings.

    Davison swallowed up Vikings ball carriers by the bundle on Sunday, but unfortunately the rest of the front seven had a largely lackluster performance, with Minnesota establishing a 4.5 yards per carry average and reaching the end zone three times on the ground. The 25-year-old Davison certainly did what he could to keep the Falcons' defense from folding Sunday, with all of his eight tackles resulting in a net gain of three or fewer yards for the Minnesota offense. He has a chance to put up profitable IDP numbers in Week 2, opposing an Eagles offense that ran the ball 31 times against Washington in its first outing of the regular season.

  • Falcons' Tyeler Davison: Garnering praise as run defender

    Coach Dan Quinn emphasized Thursday that Davison will play a key role in helping Atlanta better defend the run in 2019, William McFadden of the Falcons' official site reports. "We were really impressed, through free agency, about his ability to play the run," Quinn said. "We thought if we could add him into that mix of guys it would be really impactful for us."

    Davison is set to fit into a key rotational role for the Falcons' defensive line in 2019, with an outside shot at earning starter reps if he is capable of outshining Jack Crawford and Deadrin Senat throughout training camp and the preseason. Crawford and Senat each posted higher performance grades than Davison last season -- they were the 52nd- and 55th-ranked defensive tackles according to Pro Football Focus, compared to Davison's No. 83 ranking. Despite not necessarily serving as a talent upgrade, Davison adds valuable veteran presence for a defense that finished 25th against the run in 2018.
