Falcons' Jordan Tripp: Enters concussion protocol
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Falcons placed Tripp in the concussion protocol Thursday, Kelsey Conway of the Falcons' official site reports.

Tripp participated fully in the Falcons' first practice of the week Wednesday, but it appears he may have sustained the head injury during a drill. With the Falcons set to face the Patriots on Sunday, Tripp won't have much time to clear all phases of the protocol, making it likely that he'll be inactive for that contest.

Falcons' Ahtyba Rubin: Reaches deal with Atlanta
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Falcons signed Rubin to a contract Thursday, Kelsey Conway of the Falcons' official site reports.

The Falcons waived Taniela Tupou from the 53-man roster to make room for Rubin, who will presumably take over Tupou's role as the top backup to defensive tackle Dontari Poe. The 31-year-old Rubin was once a high-end IDP asset along the defensive line with a pair of 80-tackle campaigns on his resume, but he's seen his effectiveness wane in recent years. Rubin's decline has resulted in him bouncing around the league a bit, as the Falcons are the third team he'll suit up for since 2016.

Falcons' Mohamed Sanu: Limited Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanu (hamstring) was limited in practice Wednesday, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

After injuring his hamstring in Week 4, Sanu appears to be upholding his 2-to-3 recovery timetable. Due to fortuitous scheduling -- i.e. a Week 5 bye -- he may only miss one game as a result, but the Falcons will likely want him to conclude the week symptom-free or, at the very least, without suffering a setback before clearing him to return.

Falcons' Matt Bryant: Held out of another practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bryant (back) didn't practice Wednesday, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

Bryant was held out with the same injury last Wednesday and Thursday, but he returned to practice Friday and played in Sunday's 20-17 loss to the Dolphins. He made both of his extra points and one of two field-goal attempts, connecting from 50 yards out but missing from 59. Bryant should be available for Sunday's game in New England.

Falcons' LaRoy Reynolds: Returning to practice this week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reynolds (pectoral) will return to practice this week, Kelsey Conway of the Falcons' official site reports.

Reynolds was placed on short-term injured reserve to open the season, and the earliest he could return to game action would be in Week 9 against the Panthers. However, if he isn't activated within three weeks of his return to practice, he'd then be subject to remaining on IR through season's end.
