Position Listing
DeMarcus Van Dyke
News
The Chiefs have announced their final round of cuts and other moves to reach the league-mandated roster of 53 players.

Among the offensive players let go are fullback Jordan Campbell, wide receivers Fred Williams and Mark Harrison, guard Ricky Henry, tackle J'Marcus Webb and running back Charcandrick West.

The defensive players gone from the roster are safeties Jonathon Amaya and Malcolm Bronson, linemen Dominique Hamilton, Kyle Love and Kona Schwenke, linebackers Alonzo Highsmith, Devan Walker and Nico Johnson and cornerbacks Justin Rogers and DeMarcus Van Dyke .

The Chiefs have also placed Tyler Bray and Kyle Williams on IR and Mike Catapano on the non-football injury list.

Injury
Ryan Schraeder
News
Schraeder was able to take part in positional drills Monday and subsequently cleared concussion protocol, D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Shraeder has been in concussion protocol since suffering a head injury Week 2 against the Packers. It appears the 29-year-old made enough progress with his recovery during the team's bye week, and he's seemingly on track to start at right tackle Sunday against the Dolphins barring any setbacks.

Eric Saubert
News
Falcons head coach Dan Quinn said Saubert (back) won't play in Thursday's game against the Saints, Kelsey Conway of the Falcons' official site reports.

The back issue prevented Saubert from practicing at any point this week and will force his first absence of the 2017 campaign. Exclusively a blocking tight end and special-teams contributor, Saubert doesn't offer any appeal in the fantasy realm.

Tani Tupou
News
The Falcons signed Tupou off their practice squad Tuesday, D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Tupou will assume the roster spot of defensive end Jack Crawford (biceps), who was placed on injured reserve last week. The 24-year-old defensive tackle, who previously attended training camp with the Falcons before being cut in September, is expected to serve as the primary backup to Dontari Poe.

Mohamed Sanu
News
Sanu (knee) will be available for Saturday's divisional-round contest at Philadelphia, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

The Falcons held back Sanu in each practice this week, terming him a limited participant along the way. No matter, he joined his fellow injured teammates and was cleared entirely for the second round of the postseason. There's a fair chance Sanu will be able to make headway Saturday against the Eagles defense, which conceded 150.6 receiving yards per game and eight touchdowns to wide receivers over the final five outings of the regular season.

Matt Schaub
News
Schaub signed a two-year, $9 million contract with Atlanta on Wednesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Schaub returned to the Falcons last season after beginning his career as a backup with the team in 2004. He provides the team with a quality veteran option behind reigning MVP Matt Ryan.

Jack Crawford
News
Crawford sustained a bicep injury and did not return to Sunday's loss to the Bills, Kelsey Conway of the Falcons' official site reports.

Crawford recorded two tackles (both solo) prior to leaving with the injury. There's no word on the severity of the injury at this point, but he was ruled out fairly soon after exiting.

Injury
Biceps - Injured Reserve
Terrence Magee
News
Magee signed with the Falcons on Tuesday, he reports.

Magee played a depth role in two games earlier this season as Devonta Freeman battled a concussion, but he was released when Freeman completed the league's protocol. Freeman is currently nursing a knee injury ahead of Saturday's playoff game, but Magee will likely still only play on special teams either way.

Leon McFadden
News
McFadden (hamstring) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

McFadden was competing for a depth role with the Cowboys, but he missed a lot of training camp with this injury. If he gets healthy at some point this season, he's unlikely to be one of the two players Dallas can activate from IR due to his journeyman status.

Derrick Coleman
News
Coleman signed a contract with the Falcons on Tuesday, Curtis Jackson of the team's official site reports.

Coleman last played for the Seahawks in 2015. Legal troubles prevented him from taking the field last season. He joins the Falcons alongside fullback Soma Vainuku, as the two will compete for a starting gig with the reigning NFC champions. In 31 games (seven starts) over three seasons with the Seahawks, Coleman recorded 11 receptions for 91 yards with two receiving touchdowns. He also rushed the ball 10 times for 35 yards.

Ben Garland
News
The Broncos have signed exclusive-rights free agent tackle Paul Cornick and guard Ben Garland, per the Baltimore Sun.

This season will be Cornick's fourth with the Broncos while Garland will play his fifth with the team.
Keanu Neal
News
Neal forced his third fumble of the season in Monday's 24-21 victory over the Buccaneers.

Neal also tallied five tackles (four solo) to go along with the forced fumble. His tackle totals the last two weeks have been his lowest since Week 3. Still, the 22-year-old was on the field for all 61 defensive snaps and figures to continue being heavily involved on the defense going forward.

Austin Hooper
News
Hooper caught three balls on five targets for 15 yards in Saturday's 26-13 playoff win over the Rams.

Hooper has had between two and three receptions in each of his last seven games, so you know what to expect from him. He hasn't caught a touchdown pass in any of those games, either, so temper your expectations in the divisional round against the Eagles.

Damontae Kazee
News
Kazee (ankle) put together a full practice Wednesday, Vaughn McClure of ESPN reports.

Kazee has been slowed down by an ankle injury since mid-August, but is seemingly on track to play in the Falcons' opener against the Bears on Sunday. The 2017 fifth-round pick projects to provide depth in the secondary.

Brian Poole
News
Poole (back) participated fully Wednesday and doesn't carry an injury designation for Thursday's game against the Saints.

The Falcons once looked like they could be low on cornerback depth for the short week, but with Desmond Trufant clearing the NFL's concussion protocol and Poole showing improved health, the team will have all of its key secondary contributors in the fold. Look for Poole, who has collected 48 tackles and has broken up four passes in 11 games this season, to step back in as the Falcons' nickel cornerback following a one-game absence.

Ricardo Allen
News
Allen recorded 10 tackles (eight solo) in Sunday's loss to the Vikings.

Allen has now posted 16 total tackles over the last two weeks, as he looks to be returning to form after struggling production-wise for several weeks in November.

Adrian Clayborn
News
Clayborn (hamstring) is not listed on the Falcons' final injury report heading into Monday's game against the Buccaneers, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

Clayborn missed Thursday's practice, but has subsequently practiced in limited fashion to close out the week. It looks like the team was exercising caution with its sack specialist. Look for him to resume his usual workload Sunday barring any setbacks.

Quincy Mauger
Injury
Undisclosed - Injured Reserve
Duke Riley
News
Riley notched a solo tackle on 10 snaps in Monday's 24-21 win over the Buccaneers.

Riley has been eased back into game action since returning from meniscus surgery in Week 12 after missing four games. The rookie's 10 snaps represent his highest amount since before the knee injury. If Riley can continue to progressively increase his snap count to his pre-injury level, he will likely see his tackle numbers rise.

Robert Alford
News
Alford signed a four-year, $38 million extension with the Falcons on Thursday, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports.

Alford has been a constant in the Atlanta secondary for the past four seasons, collecting two or more interceptions in each year with the team. Through 12 games in 2016, the 28-year-old has also racked up 47 combined tackles, putting him well on pace to surpass his career high. The Southeastern Louisiana product was handsomely rewarded for those efforts Thursday.

Garrett Grayson
News
Grayson signed a reserve/future contract with the Falcons on Monday, Will McFadden of the Falcons' official site reports.

Grayson has only suited up in one NFL game during his three-year career, but he has never played an offensive snap. He'll likely need a stellar training camp to prove he's worthy of being Matt Ryan's backup, since current backup Matt Schaub is an established and has one year remaining on his contract.

Levine Toilolo
News
Toilolo (knee) does not have an injury designation for Saturday's wild-card matchup with the Rams, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

Although he has been limited in practice all week, Toilolo did not receive an injury designation for Saturday's game, meaning the tight end should be all set to go. Toilolo averaged over 28 offensive snaps per game during the regular season, but there's no telling if the lingering knee injury will whittle down those numbers.

Derrick Shelby
News
Shelby (calf) returned to the field Tuesday, D. Orlando Ledbetter of the The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Shelby returns from Achilles surgery after ending his 2016 campaign on injured reserve. In six games last season, he recorded eight tackles and one pass defensed, but he could see a decline in reps this season after the Falcons acquired veteran Dontari Poe.

LaRoy Reynolds
News
Reynolds (pectoral) was activated off injured reserve Tuesday, Kelsey Conway of the Falcons' official site reports.

Reynolds landed on injured reserve to start the season and recently returned to practice in preparation for Week 7. He could return to action for Sunday's game against Carolina, where he will once again primarily serve a special teams role.

Tevin Coleman
News
Coleman rushed for 40 yards on 14 carries and added 28 yards on three catches during Saturday's 26-13 win over the Rams.

Coleman finished Saturday with just two fewer touches, 19 to 17, than Devonta Freeman as the Falcons went to the ground in an effort to keep the Rams' potent pass rush at bay. Coleman didn't make any wow plays, but his 68 yards marked a high in the five games since Freeman returned from injury, having entered Saturday averaging just 42.5 yards per game since Freeman's return. The 17 touches also represent a high during that span. It's hard to see Coleman having much of an opportunity to improve next weekend against the Eagles. Philly boasted the league's best run defense this season - a full four yards per game better than second-place Minnesota.

Taylor Gabriel
News
Gabriel (hamstring) practiced fully Thursday and is "ready to go" for Saturday's wild-card game against the Rams, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

Aside from his early departure Week 17, Gabriel hovered between 40 and 65 percent of the offensive snaps in most games during the 2017 campaign. Because he played third banana to Julio Jones (ankle/ribs) and Mohamed Sanu throughout, Gabriel managed multiple catches in 10 of 16 games this season. Of those six with one or fewer, though, four of them occurred during the final five contests, meaning he may have a difficult time getting in on the act against the Rams' 13th-ranked pass defense.

Rannell Hall
News
Hall was signed to the Falcons' practice squad Tuesday.

Hall spent a majority of the 2017 season as a member of the Browns' practice squad before being let go in early December. He hasn't been active during a regular-season contest since 2015.

Blidi Wreh-Wilson
News
Wreh-Wilson signed a one-year contract extension with the Falcons on Friday, Adam Caplan of ESPN.com reports.

Wreh-Wilson joined the Falcons in late November but only managed to take the field once last season. He'll head into the offseason vying for a spot on the 53-man roster as a depth cornerback and special teamer.

Sean Harlow
No Updates
Dontari Poe
News
Poe had five tackles (two solo) and a sack in Thursday's 20-17 win over the Saints.

The five tackles equal Poe's season high, and the sack brings his season total to 2.5. The 27-year-old continues to be a reliable anchor in the middle of the Falcons' defense, but he has limited IDP value as he is consistently tasked with eating up double teams.

Deion Jones
News
Jones posted 10 tackles (eight solo) and one interception Sunday against the Saints.

This was Jones' sixth double-digit tackle performance in 15 games, and he now has 128 tackles (86 solo) this campaign. He's been consistent, too, falling below seven tackles just three times this season, and he should be considered a top IDP asset in Week 17, especially against a Carolina team against whom he accrued 11 tackles in Week 9.

Desmond Trufant
News
Falcons head coach Dan Quinn said Wednesday that Trufant remains in the NFL's concussion protocol, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

Trufant isn't expected to practice Wednesday and appears in serious jeopardy of missing Sunday's game against the Vikings. With another key cornerback in Brian Poole (back) limited in the team's first practice of the week, the Falcons could be shorthanded in the secondary for the Week 13 matchup.

Brooks Reed
News
Reed (groin) was a full participant at the Falcons' practice Friday.

Reed was limited throughout the week, but returned to Friday's practice in full form. Barring any setbacks, he should be good to start at right defensive end in Sunday's tilt with the Chargers.

Alex Mack
News
Mack (calf) is listed as active for Sunday's tilt against the Panthers.

Mack will suit up in Week 17, despite failing to participate in practice Thursday and Friday. If Mack were to re-injure his calf Sunday, Ben Garland could fill in at center.

Devin Fuller
News
Fuller (knee) reverted to injured reserve Saturday.

Fuller, who tore his ACL last week, cleared waivers and will now spend a second consecutive year on the Falcons' IR.

Injury
Knee - ACL - Injured Reserve
Jordan Tripp
News
Tripp (concussion) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, Kelsey Conway of the Falcons' official site reports.

Tripp has missed the last two games of the season due to the concussion and will now likely be out for the rest of the season. Tripp served as a depth option on the defensive front for the Falcons.

Injury
Concussion - Injured Reserve
Terron Ward
News
Ward rushed eight times for 40 yards in Monday's 24-21 win over Tampa Bay.

Ward also caught one pass for six yards on the evening. His increased workload was a direct result of Tevin Coleman being sidelined with a concussion, while Devonta Freeman still got the lion's share of work with 22 carries and five receptions. Ward would be in line for a similar workload if Coleman misses more time.

Wes Schweitzer
No Updates
Reggie Davis
News
Davis signed a reserve/future contract with the Falcons on Monday, Will McFadden of the Falcons' official site reports.

Davis spent a better part of the 2017 season off of NFL rosters, but the 5-foot-11, 170-pound wideout will get another shot with the Falcons for the 2018 campaign. The Falcons have plenty of talent at receiver with Julio Jones and Mohamed Sanu, so Davis may have to work special teams if he wants a 2018 roster spot.

Andy Levitre
News
Levitre (triceps) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

Levitre partially tore his triceps in Week 17 against the Panthers, and he won't be able to battle through it during the playoffs, so Ben Garland will slot in at left guard Sunday against the Rams.

Injury
Triceps - Injured Reserve
Courtney Upshaw
News
Upshaw left Sunday's game against the Packers with an ankle injury and will not return, Judy Battista of NFL.com reports.

Upshaw exited Sunday's game in the first quarter, but the severity of his injury is currently unknown. Both Adrian Clayborn and Derrick Shelby likely will see extended snaps at defensive end in Upshaw's absence.

Martin Ifedi
Injury
Ankle - Injured Reserve
Ahtyba Rubin
News
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.

Kemal Ishmael
News
Ishmael (shoulder) practiced with the linebackers Tuesday, Vaughn McClure of ESPN reports.

It was reported earlier in the offseason that Ishmael would be working with the linebackers when he recovered from shoulder surgery. Formerly a free safety, Ishmael played in just 27.9 percent of Atlanta's defensive snaps in 2016, but he managed to record 52 tackles. The position change will allow him to better utilize his skills as a tackler and could result in an increase in snaps for the 26-year-old defender.

Jamil Douglas
News
Dolphins rookie Jamil Douglas continues to gain first-team snaps at left guard in OTAs. 

Douglas is competing with Dallas Thomas for the starting job. Over the last few weeks, he's gone from occasional snaps to a 50/50 split of starting snaps. 

"I like the fact that when he’s been in there he doesn’t make a lot of mental mistakes,” coach Joe Philbin said, per the Palm Beach Post. “I think he’s grasped the system relatively well. I think his play speed’s been pretty good. He doesn’t seem to hesitate a lot and that’s a good sign for a young guy. ... I really like what I see."

Grady Jarrett
News
Jarrett (ankle) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

Jarrett was limited in practice Wednesday, so his full participation Thursday is a step in the right direction. Barring a major setback, the defensive tackle seems likely to play against the Panthers this week. Jarrett is coming off a seven-tackle, one-sack performance against the Jets in Week 8.

Daniel Brunskill
No Updates
De'Vondre Campbell
News
Campbell recorded his second sack of the season Sunday night against the Patriots.

Campbell also added a season high eight tackles (seven solo) in the contest. The 23-year-old logged 73 defensive snaps (97.0 percent) and should continue seeing a heavy workload.

Jake Matthews
No Updates
Ty Sambrailo
News
Head coach Dan Quinn ruled out Sambrailo (hamstring) for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

Sambrailo is expected to be replaced by Austin Pasztor during Sunday's game.

Devonta Freeman
News
Freeman (knee) is clear of injury ahead of Saturday's divisional-round game in Philadelphia, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

For the second week in a row, the Falcons have given the thumbs up to every player that made an appearance on the injury report. Freeman himself was limited in all three sessions this weekend, but his knee issue won't hinder him from handling early-down work Saturday. In six contests following a two-game absence due to a concussion, he's averaged 99.8 scrimmage yards per game and tallied four touchdowns while playing 65.3 percent of the offensive snaps.

Injury
Knee - MCL - Questionable for the start of training camp
Marvin Hall
News
Hall (coach's decision) is listed as inactive Sunday at New England.

The Falcons are welcoming back Mohamed Sanu following a one-game absence due to a hamstring injury, so the receiving corps is again intact. Hall will thus have to await another opportunity to record his second career catch.

Sean Weatherspoon
News
Weatherspoon was not listed on the team's injury report released Monday, D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Prior to the report, Weatherspoon had been dealing with an illness of sorts. With his name clear from the dreaded weekly report, the expectation is that Weatherspoon will be ready for the team's game against the Saints on Thursday.

Justin Hardy
News
Hardy's lone target went for a three-yard reception in the Wild Card victory over the Rams on Saturday.

Matt Ryan threw 30 passes on Saturday, and 18 of the targets went to either Julio Jones or Mohamed Sanu, leaving few opportunities for other pass-catching options. Hardy may get a look or two in the Divisional Round against the Eagles, but in would likely take an injury to one of the aforementioned receivers for him to make an impact against Philadelphia.

Joey Ivie
News
The Cowboys selected Ivie in the seventh round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 228th overall.

Ivie wasn't a very visible part of Florida's defense and didn't test well at his pro day, but he quietly contributed a lot of snaps over the last three years. He could stick as a rotational tackle for Dallas.

JT Jones
No Updates
Nick Williams
News
Williams (coach's decision) is inactive for the Falcons' Week 1 game versus the Bears.

Williams is buried on the Falcons' depth chart at wide receiver, while Julio Jones, Mohamed Sanu and Taylor Gabriel figure to maintain their positioning at the top of the group. Williams appeared in just two games for Atlanta throughout the 2016 season, hauling in five passes for 59 yards on seven targets.

Takkarist McKinley
News
McKinley (shoulder) will play in Sunday's preseason game against the Steelers, D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

McKinley has slowly increased his practice reps and is apparently ready to go for the Falcons' second preseason game Sunday. The Falcons' 2017 first-round pick is expected to shore up their defensive front, and could possibly push for a starting role.

Alex Gray
No Updates
Sharrod Neasman
No Updates
Matt Ryan
News
Ryan (personal) practiced in full Wednesday, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

The reason for Ryan's absence Tuesday was explained as a personal matter by the organization, per McClure. Ryan wouldn't elaborate on the topic Wednesday, but his ability to log every practice rep returns the Falcons offense to status quo. Over the past four contests, including Saturday's wild-card win against the Rams, he's completed 62 percent of his passes, averaged nearly 259 yards per game and recorded four touchdowns versus one interception.

Julio Jones
News
Jones (ankle) doesn't have a designation for Saturday's divisional-round game at Philadelphia, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

The Falcons have included a number of key skill-position players in both weeks of postseason prep to date, including Jones, who followed a DNP/DNP/limited practice regimen prior to this contest. He's carried an ankle injury for most of the second half of the season, but his production hasn't experienced any dips. As evidence, he averaged six receptions (on 10 targets) for 97.8 yards per outing and reached the end zone three times over the last nine games. Consequently, he's a must-play, per usual, in the second round of the playoffs.

Matt Bosher
News
Bosher (ankle) is listed as active for Monday's game against the Seahawks.

Bosher, who is nursing an ankle injury, was considered a game-time decision heading into the evening. The Falcons do not have another punter on their roster, so it is possible Bosher could still be playing through some pain. However, he will likely take on his usual responsibilities barring any setbacks.

Vic Beasley
News
Head coach Dan Quinn wouldn't confirm that Beasley would play Sunday against the Dolphins, but he'll practice this week to see how his hamstring reacts, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

This is a great sign for Beasley, who hasn't played since Week 2 against the Packers. He played limited snaps in each of his first two games but he was still able to record two total sacks. The Falcons only have 12 sacks through four games, so there will be plenty of pass-rush opportunities once Beasley is able to return.

Austin Pasztor
News
Pasztor (pectoral) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

With Pasztor back at practice, expect the 25-year-old to settle back in as Ryan Schraeder's backup at right tackle.

Josh Harris
No Updates
Andre Roberts
News
Roberts (knee/ankle) doesn't have a designation for Saturday's wild-card contest versus the Rams, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

Although every injured Falcon has been cleared of injury for the postseason opener, head coach Dan Quinn was a bit cautious in comments about Roberts, who he said "looks [to be] back to himself," per McClure. Roberts followed up back-to-back absences to start the week with a limited showing Thursday, so his return prowess could be a bit compromised this weekend.

Bryant connected on all four field-goal attempts and both extra points in Saturday's 26-13 NFC wild-card win over the Rams.

The kicks weren't chip shots either, as two of his field-goal attempts were longer than 50 yards. The veteran kicker may be operating in worse weather conditions in the divisional round in Philadelphia, but he has to be considered one of the most reliable kicking options left in the playoffs.

Lucas Crowley
News
Crowley was traded to the Redskins on Wednesday in exchange for CB Dashaun Phillips, Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

The Steelers -- who are set at center as long as five-time Pro Bowler Maurkice Pouncey is around -- likely wanted to create more competition at cornerback. Now in Washington, Crowley will compete for the backup role to starter Spencer Long.
