  • Falcons' Grady Jarrett: Back-to-back games with sack

    Jarrett registered five tackles (three solo) and one sack during Sunday's 23-20 win over the Browns.

    Jarrett recorded at least five tackles and one sack for the third time this season. Aside from a lackluster performance against the Rams, the veteran defensive tackle has been a major force for Atlanta's defense this season, totaling 16 tackles and 3.5 sacks through four games.

  • Falcons' Rashaan Evans: Another double-digit tackle outing

    Evans recorded 10 tackles (five solo) and one fumble recovery during Sunday's 23-20 win over the Browns.

    Evans notched his second straight game with at least 10 tackles and now has 35 stops through four games. He also recorded his second fumble recovery of the season after Jaylinn Hawkins stripped David Njoku in the first quarter. He'll look to continue his double-digit tackle streak against Tampa Bay on Sunday.

  • Falcons' Mykal Walker: Season-high 11 stops in win

    Walker recorded 11 tackles (eight solo) during Sunday's 23-20 win over the Browns.

    Walker paced the team and set a season high with 11 stops, giving him 33 tackles, two pass defenses, one sack and one interception through four games. The third-year linebacker is taking full advantage of his new role in the absence of Foye Oluokun and Deion Jones (shoulder) and will look to continue his solid production against Tampa Bay in Week 5.

  • Falcons' Caleb Huntley: Competing for top RB gig

    Huntley will compete with Tyler Allgeier for the No. 1 running back role after the Falcons placed Cordarrelle Patterson (knee) on injured reserve Monday, Scott Bair of the team's official site reports.

    Patterson was limited in the second half of Sunday's win over the Browns due to a knee issue he dealt with in practice last week, which paved the way for Huntley, who was elevated from the practice squad, and Allgeier, a rookie fifth-round pick, to garner major roles in Atlanta's comeback win. Huntley rushed 10 times for 56 yards and a touchdown, with the majority of that production coming on one drive in the second half. His performance has earned him a spot on the active roster, but Allgeier likely will get first crack at being the lead back in Patterson's absence. Regardless, both running backs face a difficult matchup against Tampa Bay in Week 5.

  • Falcons' Tyler Allgeier: Increased role on horizon

    Allgeier is set for an expanded role after the Falcons placed Cordarrelle Patterson (knee) on injured reserve Monday, Scott Bair of the team's official site reports.

    The injuries keep coming for the Falcons' running back room, which already has Damien Williams (ribs) on IR, so the rookie fifth-round pick may get an extended look as a lead back early in his career. With Patterson limited in the second half, Atlanta turned to Allgeier (11 touches for 104 yards) and Caleb Huntley (10 rushes for 56 yards and a score), as the two dominated on the ground en route to a comeback victory. After being elevated from the practice squad ahead of Week 4, Huntley officially was signed to the active roster Monday to take Patterson's spot, but Allgeier figures to get the first crack as the team's lead back in the absence of Patterson and Williams. Avery Williams, who was converted to running back this offseason, likely will get a few additional looks as well, but he's been limited to a change-of-pace role to start the season. Through three appearances, Allgeier has totaled 28 touches for 164 yards from scrimmage (5.9 yards per touch), but he'll face a stiff test against Tampa Bay in Week 5.

  • Falcons' Caleb Huntley: Earns promotion to active roster

    Atlanta signed Huntley to its 53-man roster Monday, D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

    With starting running back Cordarrelle Patterson (knee) having been placed on the Falcons' injured reserve list Monday, the team saw fit to promote Huntley from its practice squad. The undrafted second-year running back out of Ball State rushed effectively with Patterson limited during Atlanta's 23-20 victory versus Cleveland on Sunday, taking 10 carries for 56 yards and a touchdown. Huntley actually tied rookie fifth-rounder Tyler Allgeier for the team lead in rushes Week 4, so it would not be surprising to see those two split carries on some way as long as Patterson remains out.

  • Falcons' Cordarrelle Patterson: Placed on IR with knee injury

    The Falcons placed Patterson (knee) on injured reserve Monday following a procedure, Scott Bair of the team's official site reports.

    Patterson will need to spend at least four games on IR, but per D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution the plan is for him to return this season. An actual timetable for Patterson's recovery remains undisclosed, as do details of his knee procedure. The veteran entered Sunday's 23-20 win over the Browns nursing a knee injury, and he logged only one carry in the second half before opting for surgery Monday. Rookie running back Tyler Allgeier looks primed for increased work in Patterson's stead, and Atlanta also inked Caleb Huntley to the 53-man roster in a corresponding move.
