  • Lions' John Cominsky: Claimed by Detroit

    Cominsky was awarded to the Lions off waivers Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of reports.

    The 26-year-old defensive lineman was in line to have his role expanded going into his fourth year in the NFL before the Falcons decided to let him go last week. He'll likely have a tougher time finding playing time in Detroit, which just beefed up an already-solid front four by selecting Aidan Hutchinson with the second overall pick in this year's draft. Cominsky will compete with the likes of Levi Onwuzurike and John Penisini for rotational snaps in 2022.

  • John Cominsky: Cut by Atlanta

    Cominsky was waived by the Falcons on Thursday, Doug Kyed of Pro Football Focus reports.

    Cominsky played 27 games primarily as a rotational defensive lineman over three campaigns with Atlanta, tallying 41 tackles and 1.5 sacks over this span, but he figured to fill in as the team's starting left defensive end this coming season. The 2019 fourth-round pick dealt with various injuries that limited him to a total of just 59 snaps over four games last year. Cominsky's cut could mean that third-year backup Nick Thurman steps up into a bigger role for the Falcons in 2022.

  • Falcons' John Cominsky: No longer on injury report

    Cominsky (shoulder) is no longer listed on Atlanta's injury report, Michael Rothstein of reports.

    This latest practice report likely means Cominsky was a healthy scratch in Week 10 against Dallas. He's appeared in just two games this season, logging 17 special-teams snaps and two defensive snaps in Week 1, as well as 14 special-teams snaps in Week 4.

  • Falcons' John Cominsky: Not playing against Dallas

    Cominsky (shoulder) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Cowboys, Tori McElhaney of the Falcons' official site reports.

    Cominsky was a limited participant in Friday's session and ultimately won't suit up. The Falcons will be quite thin in terms of defensive depth, and this means Mike Pennel will probably handle a bigger workload than usual.

  • Falcons' John Cominsky: Inactive Sunday

    Cominsky is inactive for Sunday's game against Tampa Bay.

  • Falcons' John Cominsky: Not on injury report

    Cominsky (head) was absent from Wednesday's injury report, Michael Rothstein of reports.

  • Falcons' John Cominsky: Head injury in win

    Cominsky was being evaluated for a head injury in the Falcons' preseason game on Friday, Tori McElhaney of The Athletic reports.

    The third-year defensive end exited the game in the fourth quarter and did not return. There is still no news on what exactly Cominsky's injury is, but if he's forced to miss time, look for Zac Dawe and Ta'Quon Graham to receive extra practice reps in his stead.

  • Falcons' John Cominsky: Concludes 2020 with 28 tackles

    Cominsky, who did not record a tackle during Atlanta's 44-27 Week 17 loss to the Buccaneers, ended the season with 28 tackles, a sack and a fumble recovery over 13 games.

    Cominsky has inherited a steady rotational role along the defensive line as he enters the third frame of a four-year Falcons contract in 2021. The Charleston (WV) standout saw a huge increase in his usage during 2020, earning the first start of his NFL career while fielding 30.6 defensive snaps per game. As a rookie in 2019, Cominsky logged just 10 defensive snaps per contest while totaling 11 tackles over 10 appearances.

  • Falcons' John Cominsky: Taken off reserve/COVID-19 list

    Cominsky (illness) was activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list Friday, Jason Butt of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

    Cominsky has been cleared again after spending two weeks on the reserve/COVID-19 list. The Falcons already played their Week 8 game Thursday, but Cominsky should be able to practice next week and rejoin his teammates on the field in Week 9 against Denver.

  • Falcons' John Cominsky: Lands on COVID list

    The Falcons placed Cominsky on the reserve/COVID-19 list Saturday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

    Cominsky was listed as questionable Friday with what was apparently a non-COVID illness, but it appears he may have contracted the virus or come in close contact with someone infected. The 24-year-old defensive tackle will need to clear the league's COVID-19 protocols before returning to team activities. Chris Slayton and Deadrin Senat are both expected to log increased workloads until Cominsky returns.
