  • Falcons' Tyler Allgeier: Earns backfield split

    Allgeier carried the ball 10 times for 30 yards in Sunday's 31-27 loss to the Rams.

    Allgeier was inactive in Week 1, but he made his regular-season debut and tied for the team lead in carries. He worked into the offense early on, tallying three carries on the team's opening drive. Allgeier didn't look particularly explosive, but he could work on early downs and around the goal line moving forward, especially while Damien Williams is on IR.

  • Falcons' Tyler Allgeier: Set for pro debut Sunday

    Allgeier is listed as active Sunday at the Rams, Tori McElhaney of the Falcons' official site reports.

    A rookie fifth-round pick, Allgeier was a healthy scratch during the Falcons' season-opening loss to the Saints, as the team rolled with Cordarrelle Patterson, Damien Williams and Avery Williams at running back. Damien Williams picked up a rib injury during that contest and proceeded to miss every Week 2 practice before the team ruled him out Friday and placed him on IR on Saturday. With the older Williams sidelined for at least the next four games, Allgeier will get a chance to make his presence felt on the field, though Patterson still is expected to garner most of the RB reps Sunday.

  • Falcons' Tyler Allgeier: Chance to make NFL debut in Week 2

    With Damien Williams (ribs) ruled out, Allgeier has a chance to make his NFL debut Sunday at the Rams, Scott Bair of the Falcons' official site reports.

    The rookie fifth-round pick was a healthy scratch for the season opener, and Falcons head coach Arthur Smith said special teams were part of the reason for Allgeier's inactive status, per Jeremy Brener of SI.com. "A lot of it comes down to special teams. Some weeks, maybe we'll have five running backs up." However, Allgeier likely won't need to wait for one of those situations, as he has an opportunity to make his first appearance as a pro Week 2 after Williams was ruled out. Avery Williams, who was converted to running back this offseason, operated as No. 3 RB against the Saints, but it's unclear if Atlanta trusts him for primary backup duties yet. If Allgeier is active, the team figures to at least give the rookie a few touches behind Cordarrelle Patterson, who dominated the workload in Week 1.

  • Falcons' Tyler Allgeier: Inactive for season opener

    Allgeier (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Saints, Tori McElhaney of the Falcons' official site reports.

    Though the rookie fifth-round pick out of BYU sits third on the Falcons' depth chart at running back, he won't be active Week 1 behind starter Cordarrelle Patterson and top backup Damien Williams. Instead, converted defensive back Avery Williams will get the nod over Allgeier as Atlanta's No. 3 back, presumably due to Williams' status as the Falcons' top return man. Before Allgeier gets an opportunity to dress on game days, he may need one of Patterson or Damien Williams to miss time.

  • Falcons' Tyler Allgeier: Listed as reserve

    Allgeier is listed as the No. 3 running back on the Falcons' unofficial depth chart ahead of Sunday's game against the Saints, Scott Bair of the team's official site reports.

    The rookie fifth-round pick out of BYU will open the season behind Cordarrelle Patterson and Damien Williams following a so-so preseason in which he averaged 4.0 yards per carry to go with a touchdown on 17 totes. Though Allgeier is listed as a reserve, Atlanta's offense will likely be run-heavy, so he could still be part of the rotation Week 1.

  • Falcons' Tyler Allgeier: Two TDs bolster case for early role

    Allgeier rushed eight times for 26 yards and a touchdown while catching his only target for a two-yard touchdown in Saturday's 28-12 preseason win over the Jaguars.

    Allgeier started the preseason finale while veterans Damien Williams and Cordarrelle Patterson both got the night off. The rookie out of BYU made the most of the opportunity, scoring a two-yard touchdown through the air in the first quarter and finding paydirt again from four yards out on the ground in the fourth. Atlanta's backfield appears primed for a frustrating timeshare between Williams, Patterson and Allgeier in the regular season.

  • Falcons' Tyler Allgeier: Heavy red-zone involvement

    Allgeier carried the ball six times for 17 yards in Monday's preseason loss to the Jets. He added three receptions on four targets for 12 yards.

    Allgeier mixed in with Damien Williams while Atlanta's starters were on the field but also stayed in to play with the backups. Most notably, Allgeier had a significant role inside the red zone, carrying the ball three times while also tallying two catches on three targets inside the 20. Also of interest to Allgeier's potential role come the regular season, Cordarrelle Patterson lined up at wide receiver for his only offensive snap.
