Jarrett (groin) is unlikely to remain in Atlanta after the 2021 season, Deen Worley of USA Today reports.
Jarrett technically is under contract with the Falcons through 2022, but after the 2021 season his contract includes a potential out with just $7.3 million in dead money. The soon-to-be 28-year-old has been a rare defensive standout for Atlanta, with 17.5 sacks over the last three seasons. A strong 2021 campaign could even boost his potential trade value.
Jarrett (groin) has been ruled out for the remainder of Sunday's game against the Buccaneers.
With Atlanta having no postseason aspirations left to play for, there's little reason to rush back the two-time Pro Bowler and defensive cornerstone. Jarrett closes out his 2020 campaign with a career-high 20 QB hits, though his four sacks represent a step down from his totals of six and 7.5 between 2018 and 2019, respectively. The 27-year-old also notched eight-plus tackles for loss in a fourth consecutive campaign.
Jarrett (groin) is considered questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Buccaneers, Jason Butt of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
Jarrett has gone without a game absence over four of the past five seasons, but it's uncertain if he'll be able to return to his defensive tackle spot Sunday after suffering a first-half injury. The 27-year-old recently earned his second Pro Bowl nod in as many seasons, as he stands with a total of 52 tackles, 20 QB hits, a fumble recovery and four sacks heading into halftime of Week 17.
Jarrett (groin) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers.
The 27-year-old was added to the injury report Thursday as a limited participant, but the groin issue won't affect his availability for this weekend. Jarrett should continue to see a heavy workload at defensive tackle for Atlanta.
Jarrett (groin) was a limited participant during Thursday's practice, Tori McElhaney of The Athletic reports.
Jarrett had no issues at practice to start the week, so it's a bit concerning to see him back on the injury report with the groin issue that has hampered him throughout the season. He's yet to miss a game this season, however, and he's coming off logging 84 percent of defensive snaps in last week's loss to the Chargers. If he continues to practice in some fashion Friday, he'll likely be out there for Week 15 the Buccaneers.
Jarrett (groin) doesn't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game against the Chargers, Will McFadden of the Falcons' official site reports.
Jarrett was limited in all three of Atlanta's practice sessions this week but still managed to avoid being listed on the team's final injury report. He started the season hot with 2.5 sacks through three weeks, but the defensive lineman has added only half a sack to his ledger since then.
Jarrett (groin) was a limited participant during Wednesday's practice, Will McFadden of the team's official site reports.
Jarrett is back on the injury report again with the groin injury that has caused him to manage his practice reps this season. The Clemson product has yet to miss time this season, playing 79 percent of defensive snaps in last week's loss to New Orleans. If he continues to practice in some fashion this week he'll likely be out there for Week 14 against the Chargers.
Jarrett (knee) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, Will McFadden of the Falcons' official site reports.
Jarrett has been a recurring name on the injury report this year with back and hip issues. He has avoided missing time, playing more than 90 percent of the snaps on defense often of late. This knee injury appears to be new. If he stays on the practice field all week, however, he'll have a good chance to play Sunday versus the Raiders.
Jarrett recorded seven tackles (four solo), including half a sack, Sunday against New Orleans.
Jarrett was heavily involved in this one, registering a season-high seven tackles in the 24-9 loss on the road. He now has three sacks on the season through 10 games to go along with 39 tackles (19 solo) and one fumble recovery.
Jarrett (back) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, Will McFadden of the Falcons' official site reports.
Jarrett played through a hip injury over the last two games, and now he's bothered by a back issue. This is worth monitoring as the week goes on, as Jarrett consistently leads the Falcons' defensive line in snaps, and he's recorded 21 tackles and 2.5 sacks through five contests.
Jarrett (hip) does not carry an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Panthers, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.
Jarrett was limited in Friday's practice, but he handled 78 percent of defensive snaps Week 4 while playing through the lingering hip injury, so it doesn't look as though his workload is in much danger of diminishing versus Carolina. As the Falcons eye their first win of the season, Jarrett will be counted on to pressure Teddy Bridgewater and slow down Mike Davis.
Jarrett (hip) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, Will McFadden of the Falcons' official site reports.
Jarrett hasn't missed a game since 2018, and the defensive tackle was able to suit up in Week 4 after injuring his hip in Week 3. While he may not upgrade to a full practice at any point, Jarrett's likely to tough it out come Sunday's game against the Panthers.
Jarrett (hip) will play in Monday's game versus the Packers.
Jarrett will avoid missing his first game since the 2018 season. The Clemson product is off to a hot start this year with 14 tackles, 2.5 sacks and a fumble recovery through three games, and he'll be tasked with slowing down running back Aaron Jones and pressuring Aaron Rodgers in Week 4.
Jarrett (hip) was a limited participant in Friday's practice, Matt Schneidman of The Athletic reports.
Jarrett suffered this injury in Week 3's loss to the Bears and was unable to practice Thursday, but he participated in Friday's session. It's a positive sign for his chances of playing Monday versus the Packers, but if he can't shake off the injury in time, John Cominsky will likely take over as a starting defensive tackle.
Jarrett (hip) exited Sunday's contest against the Bears, Jeff Schultz of The Athletic reports.
It's unclear how Jarrett suffered the injury, however, he's been unable to return to the game since the first half. As long as Jarrett is sidelined, Marlon Davidson would be in line for an uptick in snaps.
Jarrett collected five tackles and a fumble recovery during Sunday's 40-39 loss to the Cowboys.
Jarrett made an early impression in Week 2, scooping up a loose ball after teammate Foyesade Oluokun stripped Ezekiel Elliott on Dallas' third offensive drive of the game. The 2019 Pro Bowler also assisted Takkarist McKinley on a takedown in the backfield in the opening quarter, tackling Elliott for a four-yard loss on a Cowboys drive that concluded with a turnover on downs at the 5:55 mark. Dallas roared back in the second half to overtake Atlanta for the Week 2 win, but now Jarrett and the Falcons defense aim to re-calibrate against a Bears offense that is coming off an underwhelming 17-point performance against the Giants.
Jarrett collected four tackles, 1.5 sacks and a tackle for loss during Sunday's 38-25 loss to Seattle.
Jarrett continues his transformation into a household name, having earned his first career Pro Bowl nod in 2019 and so far in 2020 looking every bit like an elite defensive tackle. Starting 16 games for the second time in his NFL career last year, Jarrett generated six-plus sacks for a second consecutive season. His strong pass-rushing form remains intact as he led the way to three team sacks for Atlanta on Sunday. Dallas may be without starting right tackle Cameron Erving (knee) after he suffered an injury during Sunday Night Football, leaving the Cowboys' offensive line potentially depleted for a Week 2 matchup against Jarrett and the Falcons' front.
Jarrett said Monday that it has been "awesome" to be a teammate of Dante Fowler thus far, and that he is "ready to go wreck it up with him," William McFadden of the Falcons' official site reports.
An argument can be made that Fowler is as talented a pass rusher as Jarrett has teamed up with across six NFL seasons, as Fowler has averaged eight sacks per 16 games since the start of 2017. Over that same span, Fowler's production compares favorably to the averages of both Takkarist McKinley (5.9 sacks per 16 games) and Vic Beasley (six sacks per 16 games), providing optimism that Atlanta's pass rush may rise from a 30th place finish in team sacks. Jarrett himself is coming off a career-high 7.5-sack season and has potential to improve upon that number with Fowler demanding attention from opposing offensive lines.
Jarrett racked up 69 tackles, 16 QB hits, 7.5 sacks and two forced fumbles while making 16 starts and earning his first career Pro Bowl nod in 2019.
The 26-year-old continues to be a monster for Atlanta's front seven, collecting an impressive 13.5 sacks, 32 QB hits and 20 tackles for loss the past two seasons. Jarrett was especially dominant in 2019, ranking among Pro Football Focus' top-five defensive tackles in terms of both run defense and pass rush, while placing behind only Aaron Donald and Cameron Heyward by measure of overall performance at the position. Jarrett will be on the second season of his four-year, $68 million deal in 2020 after establishing new career highs in tackles and sacks during his fifth pro campaign.
Jarrett accounted for three tackles and one sack during Sunday's 24-12 win against the Jaguars.
The ascending defensive star reached the six-sack mark for a second consecutive campaign, and simultaneously achieved 11-plus tackles for loss for the second time over the past three years. In addition to his run-stuffing prowess, Jarrett has been an exceptionally valuable interior lineman given his ability to disrupt the passer. Jarrett has 44 QB hits in 45 regular-season games since the start of 2017, and he has finally been rewarded with his first career Pro-Bowl nod. Jarrett looks to get after Tampa Bay's Jameis Winston in Week 17, a quarterback who has been sacked 46 times while committing an astronomical 33 giveaways on the year.
