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 .
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.
Saubert, a small school product out of Drake, has some intriguing traits that should translate to the NFL. He checks in at 6-foot-5 with big hands and he posted a strong 121-inch broad jump at the Combine. Like any small school player, there will be a learning curve for Saubert, but he has reliable hands and the frame to hold up in the NFL.
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.
Sanu incredibly hauled in a two-yard touchdown with one hand on Atlanta's second drive of the game. In doing so, the veteran has now found the end zone in three of his last four appearances. Even though he's only topped 40 yards once over that span, his nose for pay dirt has certainly helped his stock.
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.
The Falcons had an open spot on their 53-man roster, and with Devonta Freeman (concussion) likely out for the team's upcoming matchup against the Seahawks, they opted to scoop up Magee. Carries figure to be hard to come by for the 24-year-old, as he will still be the third running back on the depth chart even if Freeman sits out. However, he likely will provide help on special teams to go along with running back depth.
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.
This is the fifth time in the last six matchups that Neal posted eight or more tackles, so it seems the second-year pro is comfortable in the big league. He did suffer a head injury during this game, but he was allowed to re-enter the game after a quick absence from the field.
Hooper helped cap off the romp early in the fourth quarter with a one-yard touchdown grab, his second in three weeks, after battling through a five-game scoreless streak earlier in the season. Most of Hooper's work takes place underneath as he's averaged just 8.7 yards per catch from Week 2 on. Still, it's a positive sign that Matt Ryan is looking more frequently toward Hooper, who has been targeted at least six times in five of his last six games.
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.
The nine stops brings Poole to 22 total tackles on the season, and he's had at least six tackles in all three games this season. He also has a sack and three defensed passes, making him an intriguing defensive option in IDP leagues.
The team's bye week came at the right time for Allen, who suffered a concussion in Week 4's loss to the Bills. He now appears fully recovered from the injury and should be set to start at free safety Sunday against the Dolphins barring any setbacks.
Clayborn posted a monstrous six sacks against the Cowboys in Week 10, but of course that type of performance isn't explicable. His Week 11 matchup was highlighted by one fumble recovery, but it isn't much of a change from most of his outings, as his only game with more than two tackles was his six-sack game.
Riley is looking to make his return from knee surgery he underwent following a Week 7 injury. However, the team will play it safe with the rookie and hold him out another week.
Alford has only posted over three tackles three times this season, so this type performance is unlikely to continue. It's more likely that he was just lined up against high-volume receivers and QB Russell Wilson who heaved the ball up 42 times Monday. It's a great performance, but it's tough to predict when the next one will be.
Without this settlement, Boykins would have had to wait until after the 2017 season to sign with another team. He's now officially free to sign with another team, and the undrafted rookie showed potential as a practice squad member when he led the Titans with five tackles against the Panthers in his second preseason game.
Grayson was recently cut from the team's practice squad in order to make room for kicker Mike Meyer, who was brought in last week while Matt Bryant (calf) dealt with an injury. Bryant was ultimately able to play in the Falcons' Week 10 win over the Cowboys, so the team elected to dump Meyer from the practice squad to bring Grayson back into the fold.
Austin Hooper continues to be the man in Atlanta, but Toilolo continues to see a fair amount of offensive snaps with 31 on Sunday, just under half of the Falcons' total. Those snaps are not translating into production in the passing game, however. Toilolo totaled six targets in games against the Jets and Bills -- and just one in his other five outings combined.
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.
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.
Coleman got off to a solid start, punching in a one-yard touchdown on Atlanta's opening drive, but he found little room to run overall. While that's no surprise against a rugged Seattle defense, Coleman has now scored in three straight games, and had another touchdown overturned in the fourth quarter Monday. After enjoying a nice uptick in fantasy value recently, Coleman's Week 12 stock figures to be impacted by teammate Devonta Freeman's (concussion) status to face the Buccaneers.
Gabriel was a spark for Atlanta's offense during last year's conference title run, capable of stretching defenses by being a constant threat to make a big play. With new offensive coordinator Steve Sarkisian at the helm, some of that spark seemed lost earlier in the season, as Gabriel recorded just one catch of 30 or more yards in Atlanta's first seven games. Gabriel has now hauled in a 30-yard pass in each of the Falcons' past two games. It seems as if Sarkisian is finding ways for Gabriel to impact the game -- including on the ground, where he has two carries in the past two games, the same amount he had in the first seven games of the season.
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.
Poe now has reached the quarterback in two of the past three games. The defensive tackle is up to 20 tackles (12 solo), two pass defensed and 1.5 sacks on the year. He'll now be tasked with stuffing the Seahawks' run game Monday night.
Jones has now tallied exactly 11 total tackles in each of his last four games and is up to 71 total stops on the year. He should get plenty of tackle opportunities in Week 10 against Ezekiel Elliot and the Cowboys.
This was easily Trufant's best outing of the season, as he posted season highs in both tackles and pass breakups. Of course, he had extra chances to make an impact against a Seahawks offense that threw the ball 42 times Monday night, so he may have just waltzed into a favorable matchup that will be difficult to match consistently.
With a full return to practice Thursday, Mack should also be a full go for Sunday night's game against the Packers.
Fuller, who tore his ACL last week, cleared waivers and will now spend a second consecutive year on the Falcons' IR.
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.
Ward was limited in practice Thursday due to a knee injury but will take the field Monday night. Devonta Freeman (concussion) has been ruled out of the contest, which will make Tevin Coleman the lead back and Ward the No. 2 option. As long as he remains healthy, Ward seems likely to see increased action Monday night given the Falcons' dual-back playing style.
Davis was claimed by the Browns in early September after spending the preseason with the Falcons. The 24-year-old is a likely candidate to end up on a practice squad if he clears waivers.
Levitre will continue to play through a knee injury and should continue his role as starting left guard Monday night.
Upshaw will make his first appearance since leaving after the first snap in Week 2 against the Packers. He'll immediately return to his starting role, and it'll be interesting to see how he reacts to a full workload. Upshaw should be considered a wait-and-see IDP option for the time being.
After being drafted in the seventh round of the 2015 draft, Ifedi still hasn't played a NFL snap. He's a long shot to make the 53-man roster even if he gets healthy enough to experience preseason.
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.
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."
Jarrett now has 37 tackles (23 solo) and 1.5 sacks through 10 games. He's not a fantasy force to be reckoned with, but with favorable matchups like the Seahawks offensive line, he may be able to get to the quarterback.
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.
Sambrailo gives the Falcons another experienced, quality option at tackle on an improving offensive line.
It appears Freeman hasn't made much notable progress in his recovery from the concussion since entering the protocol following his early departure in the first quarter of the Falcons' Week 10 win over the Cowboys. Though practice participation doesn't have any bearing on a player receiving clearance from the protocol, it's typically an indication that one is trending in the right direction. Given that Freeman had a prior history of concussions before suffering his latest head injury, the Falcons could opt to proceed cautiously with the running back, who missed his first game of the season in Monday's win over the Seahawks. Freeman will likely need to practice in some capacity either Thursday or Friday and receive clearance from an independent neurologist afterward in order for the Falcons to give him the green light to play Sunday against the Buccaneers. If that fails to materialize, Tevin Coleman would serve as the team's lead back for the second straight contest.
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.
After a torn Achilles suffered last October limited Weatherspoon to just four games in 2016, the veteran linebacker wasn't able to secure a contract during the offseason. Now apparently back to full strength, Weatherspoon will offer Atlanta additional depth at the second level in his third stint with the club. With rookie Duke Riley (knee) set to undergo surgery, Weatherspoon could see regular work on running downs.
Hardy has struggled to get targets in Atlanta's offense, as he's only seen more than three targets in a game once this season, but he was able to find the end zone in this one. He's an injury away from a much bigger role in the passing game, but for now he can expect about two targets a game, which severely limits his ceiling.
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.
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.
Ryan has now thrown for under 220 yards in back-to-back outings, but Monday marked his fourth straight game with two touchdown passes. The quarterback led the Falcons to strong starts in both halves, as they scored touchdowns on their first two drives of the game as well as their first drive after halftime. On the back of a tough road win, Ryan will now look forward to three straight home games, beginning this Sunday against the Buccaneers.
Jones apparently added a minor knee injury to the ankle ailment that's been bothering him for a few weeks. He's yet to miss a game this season and has a long history of lower-body injuries, but it's possible the wear and tear has contributed to his disappointing campaign. The bigger factor seems to be a lack of red-zone opportunities and overall inconsistency with volume, as he's producing 9.1 yards per target yet is on pace to finish the year with only 86 catches for 1,258 yards on 138 targets. Jones should be ready for Sunday's favorable home matchup with the Buccaneers.
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.
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.
With Pasztor back at practice, expect the 25-year-old to settle back in as Ryan Schraeder's backup at right tackle.
Roberts has dealt with a couple minor injuries but hasn't been in danger of missing significant time. He'll continue to function as the primary returner on kicks and punts as well as a depth receiver.
Bryant missed a couple days of practice due to a calf problem, but that didn't prevent him from suiting up and performing well. In fact, the 42-year-old drilled a 50-yard field goal Sunday. Through nine games, Bryant sports 71 points.
