  • Falcons' Qadree Ollison: Scores on only rush attempt

    Ollison ran once for 19 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 30-20 loss to the Saints. He also failed to haul in his only target.

    Mike Davis led the team in rushing attempts (six) and yards (30), but he also lost two fumbles and had to leave the game due to a rib injury. In his absence, Ollison played just 16 offensive snaps, but he took advantage of his only touch by bowling his way to a 19-yard score in the third quarter, recording the Falcons' first touchdown of the game. The 25-year-old running back finished his 2021 campaign with 21 rushes for 105 yards (5.0 YPC) and a touchdown across eight appearances.

  • Falcons' Qadree Ollison: Active Sunday

    Ollison (quadriceps) is active for Sunday's game against the Saints.

    The 25-year-old was questionable with the quad issue but is ready to play in the season finale. Ollison figures to see limited opportunities Sunday behind Mike Davis and Cordarrelle Patterson in the backfield.

  • Falcons' Qadree Ollison: Receives questionable tag

    Ollison (quadriceps) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Saints, Michael Rothstein of ESPN.com reports.

    Ollison suffered the injury during last week's loss against the Bills and was able to practice in a limited fashion Thursday after sitting out Wednesday's session. He had three carries for 19 yards before exiting Week 17 and could see limited work behind Mike Davis and Cordarrelle Patterson if available Sunday.

  • Falcons' Qadree Ollison: Limited Thursday

    Ollison (quadriceps) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice session.

    Ollison didn't participate in practice Wednesday but he was back on the field in a limited capacity Thursday. While he's trending in the right direction, he'll likely have to log a full session Friday if he hopes to avoid the injury report for Sunday's game against the Saints.

  • Falcons' Qadree Ollison: Misses practice Wednesday

    Ollison (quadriceps) was unable to participate at Wednesday's practice.

    The running back suffered the quadriceps injury in Week 17 against the Bills, causing him to miss Wednesday's first practice of the week. If Ollison were forced to miss Week 18, it wouldn't cause much of a change in the Falcons' offensive approach, as their top two ball-carriers Mike Davis and Cordarrelle Patterson will be available.

  • Falcons' Qadree Ollison: Questionable to return Sunday

    Ollison (quadriceps) is questionable to return Sunday against the Bills, D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

    Ollison rushed three times for 19 yards before leaving the game with the apparent quadriceps injury. If he is unable to return, Mike Davis and Cordarrelle Patterson will be the only healthy running backs available for the Falcons.

  • Falcons' Qadree Ollison: Non-factor in loss

    Ollison rushed once for three yards and caught his only target for four yards during Sunday's 31-13 loss to the 49ers.

    Ollison played just three offensive snaps, which all came late in the fourth quarter of the blowout loss. The Falcons' running game was held in check by the 49ers' stout front seven, but it remains clear that Cordarrelle Patterson and Mike Davis will garner the majority of the touches regardless of how much success they are having. While Atlanta's offense is reliant on its running backs, Ollison likely doesn't warrant any fantasy consideration as long as the aforementioned duo is healthy.

  • Falcons' Qadree Ollison: Five rushing attempts in Week 14

    Ollison rushed five times for 23 yards during Sunday's 29-21 win over the Panthers.

    Ollison remains firmly behind Cordarrelle Patterson and Mike Davis, but he appears to have solidified himself as the No. 3 option after the Falcons waived Wayne Gallman. Across his last three appearances, the third-year pro has 16 rushing attempts for 64 yards and three catches for eight yards. However, while Atlanta's offense is reliant on its running backs, Ollison likely doesn't warrant any fantasy consideration as long as the aforementioned duo is healthy.

  • Falcons' Qadree Ollison: Signed to active roster

    Ollison was signed to the Falcons' 53-man roster Saturday.

    The running back was elevated from the practice squad three times in the last five weeks and will fill a more prominent role going forward as Atlanta also waived veteran running back Wayne Gallman on Saturday. Ollison saw 14 total touches between the last two games he suited up and head coach Arthur Smith said Ollison had "earned the right for more carries" after he led the team in rushing yards (34) in Week 11. The three-year veteran should see more carries now as the team's third option behind Cordarrelle Patterson and Mike Davis.

  • Qadree Ollison: Reverted to practice squad

    Ollison was reverted back to Atlanta's practice squad Monday.

    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 is mostly the odd man out in Atlanta.

  • 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.

  • 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.
