  • Frank Darby: Back to practice squad

    Darby reverted to the Falcons' practice squad Monday.

    Darby was added to the active roster ahead of Sunday's 25-23 loss to the Cardinals, failing to record a stat while playing 12 snaps on special teams. With Mack Hollins (ankle) uncertain heading into the team's bye week, it's possible Darby could be appear another game in Week 12.

  • Falcons' Frank Darby: Brought up from practice squad

    Darby was elevated from the practice squad to the active roster by the Falcons on Saturday, Scott Bair of the team's official site reports.

    The depth wide receiver seems to be replacing Mack Hollins, who is out for Sunday's game against the Cardinals with an ankle injury, per Bair. Darby, a 2021 sixth-round pick, has yet to appear in a game this season. Darby recorded two catches for 29 yards and no touchdowns over his first two NFL seasons.

  • Frank Darby: Joins Falcons' practice squad

    Atlanta signed Darby to its practice squad Tuesday, Terrin Waack of the Falcons' official site reports.

    The Falcons parted ways with Darby prior to Week 1, but he's been reunited with the team ahead of Week 5. Atlanta is paper-thin at wide receiver behind Drake London, so it wouldn't be a big surprise to see Darby elevated sometime soon.

  • Frank Darby: Reaches injury settlement

    Darby (undisclosed) has been waived by the Falcons from injured reserve with an injury settlement, Tori McElhaney of the team's official site reports.

    Darby's injury settlement could be a sign that he is near recovered from a soft-tissue injury sustained in Atlanta's preseason opener. Now, instead of being sidelined for the entire season, he will be free to look for a new opportunity once he's healthy.

  • Falcons' Frank Darby: Shifts to IR

    Darby (undisclosed) has reverted to the Falcons' injured reserve, per the NFL's transaction log.

    Via Terrin Waack of the team's official website, Darby was only expected to be sidelined for a week or so after suffering a soft-tissue injury in Friday's 19-3 preseason opening win over the Dolphins. Thus, it would likely be advantageous for both he and the Falcons to reach an injury settlement once his health returns to par. If that does not occur, the pass catcher will be forced to miss the entire 2023 campaign.

  • Frank Darby: Waived/injured by Falcons

    Darby (undisclosed) was waived/injured by Atlanta on Monday, Michael Rothstein of ESPN.com reports.

    If Darby ultimately goes unclaimed off waivers, he will then revert to the Falcons' injured reserve. According to Terrin Waack of the team's official site, Darby is expected to be sidelined for about a week due to a soft-tissue injury. So, once his health is back up to par, Darby could still potentially play this season if both he and the team can come to terms on an injury settlement.

  • Falcons' Frank Darby: Dealing with soft-tissue injury

    Coach Arthur Smith said Monday that Darby (undisclosed) will be out "maybe a week or so" due to a soft-tissue injury, Terrin Waack of the Falcons' official site reports.

    Darby appears to have picked up the injury during Friday night's 19-3 preseason win over the Dolphins, which was Atlanta's first taste of live hits. It doesn't appear that the depth wideout's undisclosed issue is anything too serious, though it could impact his availability for Friday's preseason contest against the Bengals. Darby suited up for just five games last season.

  • Falcons' Frank Darby: Limited to five games in Year 2

    Darby caught his lone target for 15 yards across five appearances during the 2022 campaign.

    Darby, a 2021 sixth-round pick, joined the Falcons' practice squad after failing to make the initial 53-man roster, but he earned a spot on the active roster by the end of November. He appeared in four of the team's final seven games -- drawing DNP-CDs three times -- and secured his lone catch of the campaign in Week 18 when he played a season-high 27 offensive snaps against Tampa Bay. Darby will be a free agent this offseason, and given the drop in playing time from his rookie campaign, it seems unlikely that either party has any interest in a reunion.
