Harlow (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's regular-season finale against the Buccaneers.
Harlow was promoted to Atlanta's active roster from the practice squad Dec. 20, but he won't be called upon to suit up in Tampa Bay in Week 17.
Harlow was signed to Atlanta's 53-man roster Friday, D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
The 24-year-old Harlow has bounced on and off the Falcons' practice squad throughout the year, but he is granted a chance to suit up for his second regular-season contest of 2019 with James Carpenter (concussion) now on injured reserve. Between Weeks 16 and 17 Harlow will serve as a backup at offensive guard behind current starters Wes Schweitzer and Chris Lindstrom.
Harlow was waived by the Falcons on Saturday.
Harlow suited up for just one game with the team after being promoted from the practice squad earlier this month. He figures to land back there if he ends up clearing waivers.
Harlow was added to the 53-man roster Saturday in a corresponding move to Ito Smith (concussion) being placed on injured reserve, Will McFadden of the Falcons' official site reports.
The 24-year-old offensive lineman is being called up from the practice squad a day after Wes Schweitzer (concussion) was ruled out for Week 10. At Friday's practice Harlow took snaps at center with the second-team offense, indicating his anticipated role for Sunday's matchup against New Orleans.
Harlow agreed to join Atlanta's practice squad Tuesday, D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. In corresponding moves, Atlanta waived Zac Kerin and J.C. Hassenauer.
The second-year offensive guard out of Oregon State was let go by Atlanta on Sept. 1, but he's returned as a developmental backup just seven weeks after the fact. With Brandon Fusco (ankle) out for the season, Atlanta decided to bring back a known commodity in Harlow to provide practice squad depth in case another interior lineman on the active roster should fall victim to injury.
The Falcons cut Harlow on Saturday, D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
The Falcons tried converting Harlow, who they picked in the fourth round of the 2017 NFL Draft, from tackle to guard. It didn't pan out, and he'll likely land on a practice squad.
