  • Justin Shaffer: Activated to practice squad

    Shaffer (undisclosed) was restored to the Falcons' practice squad from their practice squad injured list Wednesday.

    Shaffer was placed on Atlanta's practice squad injured list Nov. 21 with an undisclosed issue but has presumably recovered and is now eligible for elevation. The Georgia product was a sixth-round pick by the Falcons in this year's draft and could see some time on the NFL roster over the final two weeks since Atlanta has been eliminated from playoff contention. With guards Chuma Edoga (knee) headed for IR and Jalen Mayfield (back) out for the season, there is some need for depth along Atlanta's offensive line.

    Shaffer is the first Georgia Bulldog to be selected by the Falcons in quite some time. He started every game for the national champions at left guard in 2021 and earned second-team All-SEC honors. Shaffer isn't overly athletic but has solid play strength and can hold his own on the interior.
