Falcons' Grady Jarrett: Practices in limited fashion
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Falcons' Grady Jarrett: Credited for half sack
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Falcons' Grady Jarrett: Practices in limited fashion
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Falcons' Grady Jarrett: Ready to rock
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Falcons' Grady Jarrett: Limited in Wednesday's session
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Falcons' Grady Jarrett: Ready for MNF
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Falcons' Grady Jarrett: Back at practice Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Falcons' Grady Jarrett: Suffers injury Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Falcons' Grady Jarrett: Generates takeaway in Week 2
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Falcons' Grady Jarrett: Lights up stat line in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Falcons' Grady Jarrett: Excited to team up with Fowler
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Falcons' Grady Jarrett: Establishes multiple career highs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Falcons' Grady Jarrett: Tallies another sack in Week 16 win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Falcons' Grady Jarrett: Earns first Pro Bowl nod of career
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jarrett was named to the NFC Pro Bowl roster Tuesday, Jason Butt of The Athletic reports.

The 26-year-old Jarrett has been an all-around dominant presence on the interior for Atlanta, logging 65 tackles and 10 tackles for loss, along with 13 QB hits, 5.5 sacks and two forced fumbles thus far in 2019. Jarrett signed a four-year, $68 million contract with the team in July, and he continues to be one of the few bright spots for a Falcons defense that has finished bottom eight in points allowed over each of the past two seasons.

Falcons' Grady Jarrett: Racks up six tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jarrett collected six tackles, including 1.5 tackles for loss, during Sunday's 29-22 win against the 49ers.

The Pro-Bowl buzz continues to build around Jarrett, as the 2015 fifth-round draft choice now has 5.5-plus sacks in consecutive seasons, as well as a career-high 65 tackles with two games remaining in the 2019 campaign. Jarrett has tackles for loss in back-to-back outings, but he carries a five-game sack drought heading into a Week 16 matchup against a Jacksonville offensive line that ranks among the bottom half of the league with 36 sacks allowed.

Falcons' Grady Jarrett: Sack machine in Week 10 win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jarrett amassed 2.5 sacks during Sunday's 26-9 win against New Orleans.

The 26-year-old interior lineman spearheaded a breakout Week 10 for the Falcons' pass rush, as Atlanta generated six sacks on Saints quarterback Drew Brees after managing just seven sacks through the first eight outings of the year. In addition to his typical run-stuffing prowess, Jarrett has been emerging as a pocket disrupter of late, picking up QB hits in each of his past three appearances as well as 3.5 combined sacks over Atlanta's two most recent games against Seattle and New Orleans. Week 11 presents an opportunity for Jarrett to get after young Panthers signal-caller Kyle Allen, who has five lost fumbles already on the season.

Falcons' Grady Jarrett: Superb performance
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jarrett made eight tackles (three solo) and a sack in Sunday's 27-20 loss to the Seahawks.

The tackle tally was a single-game career high, and Jarrett now has 44 tackles and three sacks through eight games. It appears Jarrett will achieve multiple career bests this year, as the fifth-year pro is set up well to shatter his previous high of 55 stops, and he's on pace to match last year's six-sack total.

Falcons' Grady Jarrett: Ready for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jarrett (abdomen) won't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game against the Seahawks, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

Jarrett was added to the injury report Wednesday as a non-participant, but the abdominal issue didnt end up impacting his availability for Week 8. The 26-year-old has 36 tackles (19 solo) with two sacks and two forced fumbles through seven games.

Falcons' Grady Jarrett: Picks up injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jarrett (abdomen) didn't participate in Wednesday's practice, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

Jarrett logged his lowest snap share (61 percent) of the season in Week 7 against the Rams, so perhaps he suffered this injury at some point during the loss. The fifth-year pro's absence could leave a major void on the Falcons' interior defensive line, which will be a problem against the Seahawks' run-heavy offense.

Falcons' Grady Jarrett: Racks up seven tackles in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jarrett compiled five solo tackles and two assists, including one tackle for loss, during Sunday's 53-32 loss to the Texans.

Freshly inked to a four-year, $68 million contract extension in July, Jarrett has so far been delivering for a Falcons defense that's often faltered. The 26-year-old defensive tackle has averaged one tackle for loss and nearly one QB hit per game, while establishing a pace through five weeks that is set to yield him six sacks for a second consecutive year. Atlanta's defense, meanwhile, ranks bottom 10 in both rushing yards and rushing touchdowns allowed to opposing running backs while also collecting just five sacks as a team, the latter figure tying them with Miami and Denver for worst in the NFL.
