Shelby started in three games for Atlanta in 2018 but missed time earlier this season with a groin injury. The Utah product is the fourth defensive starter to be placed on injured reserve, joining Keanu Neal (knee), Ricardo Allen (Achilles) and Deion Jones (foot) -- although Jones was activated prior to playing the Cowboys. Shelby didn't carry an injury designation prior to facing the Cowboys in Week 11, but the injury seems to have lingered and will force him to miss the remainder of the season.
Shelby (groin) doesn't carry an injury designation ahead of Sunday's matchup with the Cowboys, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.
Shelby didn't practice Wednesday but was able to practice in a limited capacity Thursday and Friday. The Utah product has played in each of the Falcons' last three games after missing the previous four. In last week's contest against the Browns, Shelby logged four tackles (three solo) over 25 defensive snaps.
Shelby (groin) did not practice Wednesday, Jason Butt of The Athletic reports.
Shelby was able to suit up during Atlanta's loss to the Browns in Week 10 despite being listed as questionable due to a groin issue, and still appears to be managing his recovery. It remains to be seen whether the 29-year-old will play against the Cowboys on Sunday. If Shelby is unable to go, Steven Means will serve as the primary backup to Vic Beasley.

Shelby had just been added to the injury report Friday, but it appears his groin issue wasn't overly serious. The 29-year-old end will look to help the Falcons contain mobile rookie signal-caller Baker Mayfield, as well as a Browns rushing attack that has been effective since Nick Chubb was given the reins of the No. 1 running back job.
Shelby was a surprising addition to Friday's injury report after having participated in the week's first two practices without issue. If the 29-year-old were to remain sidelined for any amount of time, Steven Means would serve as the primary backup to Vic Beasley.
