Position Listing
 
Ryan Schraeder
News
The Falcons have made QB Sean Renfree, CB Javier Arenas, LB Tyler Starr, OL James Stone, OL Ryan Schraeder, WR Harry Douglas and DT Cliff Matthews inactive Week 4 against the Vikings. 

Dougles came into the contest questionable with a foot injury. It appears he'll be unable to go. All the other players are healthy inactives. 

Kyle Miller
News
Tight end Kyle Miller, whose NFL regular season experience consists of one game with Indianapolis in 2012, has been cut by the Dolphins. He had been signed by Miami after the 2013 season.
Dwight Lowery
News
Defensive back Dwight Lowery, who is beginning his first year with the Falcons after spending the last three with the Jaguars, was among the team's top tacklers Week 1 against the Saints. He finished with 11, including seven solo.

Lowery has never had more than 64 tackles in a season, and those came as a rookie in 2008.

Corey Peters
News
The Falcons' list of inactives for Week 1 against the Saints includes defensive lineman Corey Peters (Achilles), quarterback Sean Renfree, defensive back Javier Arenas, linebacker Nate Stupar, offensive lineman Ryan Schraeder, offensive lineman James Stone and linebacker Tyler Starr.

Renfree, Arenas, Stupar, Schraeder, Stone and Starr are all healthy scratches.

Jacques Smith
News
The Falcons trimmed their roster down to 53 on Saturday, cutting the following players: LB Pat Angerer, DL Nosa Eguae, RB Maurice Hagens, CB Jordan Mabin, WR Freddie Martino S Kimario McFadden, OL Pat McQuistan, TE Jacob Pedersen, OL Adam Replogle, DL Donte Rumph, LB Yawin Smallwood, RB Josh Vaughan, CB Ricardo Allen, S Sean Baker, WR Jeremy Ebert, G Harland Gunn, OT Terren Jones, WR Bernard Reedy, DT Travian Robertson, TE Mickey Shuler, LB Jacques Smith, WR Geraldo Boldewijn
Jonathan Massaquoi
News
The Falcons DST could not stop the run in the loss at San Francisco, giving up 199 yards on 30 attempts or 6.6 yards per carry. Atlanta struggled especially after losing defensive tackle Corey Peters to a first-half Achilles injury. 

The Falcons DST forced no turnovers but got sacks from Peters, linebacker Stephen Nicholas and defensive end Jonathan Massaquoi.

San Francisco scored on four consecutive drives to start the second half and finished with 379 total yards. The injury-depleted Falcons DST wraps up the season vs. Carolina.

Devin Hester
News
With Harry Douglas inactive because of a foot injury, Devin Hester played the role of third wheel to Julio Jones and Roddy White Week 4 at Minnesota, catching five passes for 70 yards and a touchdown.

The 70 yards were more than Douglas has had in a game this season. Yet because the performance came with Douglas sidelined, it only further validated that the Falcons offense is designed for three wide receivers and able to sustain three wide receivers. Between quarterback Matt Ryan's poor showing in Week 2 and the early injury to Douglas in Week 3, Douglas' relevance to Fantasy owners had been in doubt.

When Douglas returns, Hester won't just go away, but he was clearly a lesser part of the passing game in Week 2 and before Douglas went down in Week 3. I'm thinking Douglas is still the better choice as a bye-week replacement and occasional start in points-per-reception leagues.

Justin Blalock
News
Falcons offensive lineman Justin Blalock is questionable to return Week 4 with a back injury.

Blalock was involved in an early holding penalty, but was quiet over the rest of the contest. There was never an official injury during the game, so Blalock must have alerted coaches on the sideline that he was hurting. 

Antone Smith
News
Falcons running back Antone Smith broke off a 48-yard touchdown run Week 4 at Minnesota, giving him three scores of 35 yards or more in four games this season. The problem is he's gotten the ball only 13 times.

His proclivity for the big play has been consistent enough that you can't just dismiss it as a total fluke -- he had two scores of 35 yards or more over the last six weeks last year, too -- yet I don't know how else to approach it. He's probably going to get some attention on waiver wire this week just because Fantasy Football at its essence is little more than the meaningless pursuit of touchdowns, but what I wonder is, in his current role, when would he be worth starting? Is the chance of him giving you 10 or 11 Fantasy points really worth the even greater chance of him giving you nothing? I think most Fantasy owners would agree the reward doesn't justify the risk there.

Don't get caught up in the big plays. Smith is a sparsely used change-of-pace back who happens to be better than most.

Osi Umenyiora
News
Defensive end Osi Umenyiora will return to the Falcons without any restructuring of his contract, reports the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Umenyiora, who had 7.5 sacks and three forced fumbles last year, is set to make $2.5 million in base salary and count $4.75 million against the cap.

Reports surfaced that the team would ask him to restructure his deal, but general manager Thomas Dimitroff put that speculation to rest.

William Moore
News
Falcons safety William Moore has been ruled out Week 4 against the Vikings.

Moore left the game early due to a shoulder injury. After further evaluation, the team decided to downgrade him to out. Moore was unable to notch a tackle during the contest. 

Injury
Shoulder - Left Week 4 at Minnesota
Mike Johnson
News
The Falcons re-signed offensive tackle Mike Johnson to a one-year deal, reports ESPN.com. He did not play last season after fracturing his fibula in training camp.
Injury
T.J. Yates
News
Falcons quarterback T.J. Yates saw some time Thursday against the Falcons.

Yates completed 3 of 4 passes for 64 yards. His only incompletion was a big one, as the Buccaneers managed to intercept and run back the pass for a score. 

Yates will take on the Vikings Week 4. 

Dezmen Southward
News
Falcons defensive back Dezmen Southward, who was listed as probable on Friday's injury report with a concussion, is active for Week 1 against the Saints.
Tyler Starr
News
The Falcons have made QB Sean Renfree, CB Javier Arenas, LB Tyler Starr, OL James Stone, OL Ryan Schraeder, WR Harry Douglas and DT Cliff Matthews inactive Week 4 against the Vikings. 

Dougles came into the contest questionable with a foot injury. It appears he'll be unable to go. All the other players are healthy inactives. 

Harry Douglas
News
Falcons coach Mike Smith said Monday he expects wide receiver Harry Douglas, who sat out Week 4 due to a foot injury, to return to practice this week. The Falcons will play the Giants in Week 5.

Douglas is fourth on the Falcons in receiving yards (121). He has been targeted 18 times in three games and has 12 receptions and one touchdown.

Injury
Foot - Missed Week 4 at Minnesota
Nate Stupar
News
The Falcons' list of inactives for Week 1 against the Saints includes defensive lineman Corey Peters (Achilles), quarterback Sean Renfree, defensive back Javier Arenas, linebacker Nate Stupar, offensive lineman Ryan Schraeder, offensive lineman James Stone and linebacker Tyler Starr.

Renfree, Arenas, Stupar, Schraeder, Stone and Starr are all healthy scratches.

Zeke Motta
News
The Falcons put safety Zeke Motta on the reserve/PUP list to start the season, and he's not expected to play at all this year, reports ESPN.com. Motta is dealing with a serious neck issue.
Injury
Neck - PUP. Questionable for season
Jerome Smith
News
The Falcons waived defensive end Theo Agnew, linebacker Brenden Daley, linebacker Darin Drakeford, safety Tay Glover-Wright, wideouts Tramaine Thompson and Julian Jones, quarterback Jeff Mathews, linebacker Walker May, running back Jerome Smith and tight end Brian Wozniak.
Ricardo Allen
News
The Falcons trimmed their roster down to 53 on Saturday, cutting the following players: LB Pat Angerer, DL Nosa Eguae, RB Maurice Hagens, CB Jordan Mabin, WR Freddie Martino S Kimario McFadden, OL Pat McQuistan, TE Jacob Pedersen, OL Adam Replogle, DL Donte Rumph, LB Yawin Smallwood, RB Josh Vaughan, CB Ricardo Allen, S Sean Baker, WR Jeremy Ebert, G Harland Gunn, OT Terren Jones, WR Bernard Reedy, DT Travian Robertson, TE Mickey Shuler, LB Jacques Smith, WR Geraldo Boldewijn
Roddy White
News
Falcons wide receiver Roddy White picked up a score Week 4.

White caught four passes for 73 yards during the contest. He was targeted a team-high 14 times during the game. White wasted no time finding the end zone. On his second reception, White benefitted from a blown coverage. He wound up wide open for the 24 yard strike. Though the Falcons would try to involve White, he didn't make his third catch until late in the third quarter. 

White will look for more Week 5 against the Giants.

Travian Robertson
News
The Falcons trimmed their roster down to 53 on Saturday, cutting the following players: LB Pat Angerer, DL Nosa Eguae, RB Maurice Hagens, CB Jordan Mabin, WR Freddie Martino S Kimario McFadden, OL Pat McQuistan, TE Jacob Pedersen, OL Adam Replogle, DL Donte Rumph, LB Yawin Smallwood, RB Josh Vaughan, CB Ricardo Allen, S Sean Baker, WR Jeremy Ebert, G Harland Gunn, OT Terren Jones, WR Bernard Reedy, DT Travian Robertson, TE Mickey Shuler, LB Jacques Smith, WR Geraldo Boldewijn
Malliciah Goodman
News
Falcons LB Akeem Dent, DE Malliciah Goodman, S Zeke Motta and LB Sean Weatherspoon are active Week 13 against the Bills.

All four players were questionable coming into the game. They were all able to get through limited practice Friday.

Drew Davis
News
The Falcons put receiver Drew Davis on the physically unable to perform list for training camp.

"Drew felt some discomfort in his foot at the end of minicamp," coach Mike Smith told the team's website. "We decided to send him to the doctors for some evaluations and it was determined he had suffered an injury that would require a procedure. He recently had the procedure done and we expect him to miss around six weeks, which is why we have decided to place him on Training Camp PUP."

Davis caught 12 passes for 216 yards and two touchdowns last year while playing a key special teams role.

Injury
Foot - PUP. Out indefinitely
Cliff Matthews
News
The Falcons have made QB Sean Renfree, CB Javier Arenas, LB Tyler Starr, OL James Stone, OL Ryan Schraeder, WR Harry Douglas and DT Cliff Matthews inactive Week 4 against the Vikings. 

Dougles came into the contest questionable with a foot injury. It appears he'll be unable to go. All the other players are healthy inactives. 

Jonathan Babineaux
News
The Falcons have agreed to terms with defensive tackle Jonathan Babineaux on a three-year contract extension, the team announced Tuesday.

Babineaux had 42 tackles, a sack and an interception last season, his ninth in Atlanta.

Eric Weems
News
The Falcons backups made an impact Thursday against the Buccaneers.

With the team up by a ton, Atlanta started using their subs in the third quarter. Jacquizz Rodgers received five carries for 6 yards. Rodgers also caught a pass for 3 yards.

Eric Weems seemed to be the biggest beneficiary, hauling in four passes for 69 yards. Fullback Patrick DiMarco gained 35 yards on three catches. Levine Toilolo also contributed, catching two passes for 25 yards. Courtney Roby picked up 11 yards on one reception. 

They'll take on the Vikings Week 4. 

Robert Alford
News
Falcons CB Robert Alford and OL Peter Konz are probable Week 17.

Alford is dealing with an ankle injury, but was able to practice in full Friday. Konz has a neck injury, but fully participated in practice throughout the week.

Levine Toilolo
News
The Falcons backup pass catchers didn't make a big impact Week 4 against the Vikings.

Levine Toilolo managed to catch one pass for 12 yards, but that was it. Patrick DiMarco played a larger role, pulling in a 1 yard score in the second quarter. It was his only caught of the contest. 

Both players will look for more Week 5 against the Giants.

Prince Shembo
News
The Falcons will have RB Antone Smith and LB Prince Shembo Week 4.

Both players entered the contest probable, so the moves shouldn't come as a surprise. Smith is dealing with a hamstring injury. Shembo is battling a calf issue. 

Reid Fragel
News
Sean Renfree
News
The Falcons have made QB Sean Renfree, CB Javier Arenas, LB Tyler Starr, OL James Stone, OL Ryan Schraeder, WR Harry Douglas and DT Cliff Matthews inactive Week 4 against the Vikings.

Moore also recorded a fumble in the game, but Trufant had two more tackles, finishing with seven, three solo. Moore had five, three solo.

Stansly Maponga
News
The Falcons' inactives for Week 1 at New Orleans include defensive back Asante Samuel, running back Josh Vaughan, defensive back Kemal Ishmael, offensive lineman Jeremy Trueblood, offensive lineman Harland Gunn, defensive lineman Travian Robertson and defensive lineman Stansly Maponga. None of the seven were listed on Friday's injury report.
Joplo Bartu
News
Falcons linebacker Joplu Bartu, who had 10 tackles in the season opener last week, recorded another nine, including eight solo, Week 2 at Cincinnati.

Bartu now has more tackles through two games than he had during any two-game stretch as a rookie last season.

Sam Baker

Injury
Ra'Shede Hageman
News

Coach Mike Smith said Hageman will practice Monday.

Marquis Spruill
News
The Falcons announced Thursday linebacker Marquis Spruill will miss the entire 2014 season after suffering a torn ACL in practice Wednesday. Spruill was drafted in the fifth round (168th overall) out of Syracuse.
Injury
Knee - IR. Out for season
Bear Pascoe
News
With the retirement of Tony Gonzalez, the Falcons are undergoing a change in philosophy about their tight end position, reports the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. General manager Thomas Dimitroff said there weren't a lot of athletic pass-catching tight ends available in the draft, and the team will be more traditional in its 2014 approach.

Look for Atlanta's tight ends to line up on the line of scrimmage and block more. The team wants to be more physical up front.

"There’ll be a change in the type of tight end we’ll have on our roster," coach Mike Smith told the paper. "We’ll have a ‘Y’ tight end, where he’ll be an inline player (lined up tight to the formation). They won’t be moving around nearly as much as what we call an ‘F.’ Tony Gonzalez was more of an ‘F’ tight end than a ‘Y’ tight end."

Levine Toilolo, who had 11 catches as a rookie last year, and blocking tight end Bear Pascoe sit atop the depth chart.

Kemal Ishmael
News
The Falcons' list of inactives for Week 14 at Green Bay includes running back Josh Vaughan, defensive back Kemal Ishmael, linebacker Omar Gaither, offensive lineman Harland Gunn, offensive lineman Terren Jones, offensive lineman Sean Locklear and defensive lineman Travian Robertson. All are healthy scratches.
Josh Wilson
News
The Falcons have yet to settle on a winner of the competition for nickel cornerback duties, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

"I think we still have a lot of decisions to make in terms of who is going to be our nickel," head coach Mike Smith said. "We are going to rotate it a little bit differently than what we did in the first (exhibition) games. This is Arenas' chance to get his reps in there. Then we’ll make a decision going into the fourth preseason game on who is going to be our starter at nickel."

Robert McClain, Josh Wilson and Javier Arenas are competing for the job.

Kroy Biermann
News
Falcons coach Mike Smith told 92.9 The Game in Atlanta that pass rusher Kroy Biermann will practice but have limited snaps. He'll also take a day off of practice every two days. Biermann is coming off of an Achilles injury. 
Paul Worrilow
News
Falcons linebacker Paul Worrilow, who had 15 tackles in the season opener last week, finished one short of that Week 2 at Cincinnati. He had 14 tackles, including six solo.

Worrilow averaged 12.2 tackles in his final nine games last season after beginning the year in a reserve role.

James Stone
News
The Falcons have made QB Sean Renfree, CB Javier Arenas, LB Tyler Starr, OL James Stone, OL Ryan Schraeder, WR Harry Douglas and DT Cliff Matthews inactive Week 4 against the Vikings. 

Dougles came into the contest questionable with a foot injury. It appears he'll be unable to go. All the other players are healthy inactives. 

Jacquizz Rodgers

The Falcons backup running backs did little Week 4 against the Vikings.

Devonta Freeman ran the ball twice for just 8 yards. Freeman also hauled in two passes for 12 yards. Jacquizz Rodgers had one carry, picking up 2 yards. Rodgers caught four passes for 35 yards. 

Both players will take on the Giants Week 5. 

Jake Matthews
News
The Falcons have listed QB Sean Renfree, CB Javier Arenas, LB Tyler Starr, C James Stone, OL Ryan Schraeder, WR Roddy White and DT Cliff Matthews as inactive Week 3 against the Buccaneers. 

White was considered questionable entering the week, though he was unable to get through practice. The news bodes well for Jake Matthews and Prince Shembo. Both players were listed as probable on the injury report, and are active. 

Devonta Freeman

Jon Asamoah
News
Falcons guard Jon Asamoah was held out of practice Monday with an unspecified injury, ESPN.com reports.

"Jon Asamoah was held out for precautionary reasons for practice today, and we don't anticipate that it will be any issues at all for him moving forward," head coach Mike Smith said.

Asamoah was removed from Saturday's preseason game before the rest of the starting offensive line.

Joe Hawley

Tyson Jackson

Sean Weatherspoon
News
The Falcons announced Tuesday that linebacker Sean Weatherspoon will miss the entire 2014 season after rupturing his Achilles tendon during a workout.

"During Sean's run today with our medical staff, he suffered an injury," coach Mike Smith said in a statement. "We sent Sean to the doctor for some additional testing and evaluation and unfortunately the results showed that he ruptured his Achilles tendon. Sean had been working extremely hard to get back on the field, but regrettably he will miss the entire 2014 season. He will have a procedure done in the near future and we expect him to make a full recovery."

Weatherspoon is entering the final year of his contract and will be a free agent after this year.

Alford is dealing with an ankle injury, but was able to practice in full Friday. Konz has a neck injury, but fully participated in practice throughout the week.

Robert McClain
News
Though not even a starter, Falcons defensive back Robert McClain had one of the team's biggest defensive plays Week 1 against the Saints, intercepting quarterback Drew Brees in the end zone late in the third quarter.

It was only the second interception of McClain's career. He also had five tackles, including four solo.

Steven Jackson
News
Falcons running back Steven Jackson failed to get much done Week 4 against the Vikings.

Jackson led the team with 13 carries, but only gained 49 yards. Jackson actually had a chance to score in the second quarter, but the play was reversed. The official ruled Jackson was down before breaking the plane. While the team could have run Jackson on the next play, they instead opted to pass for the touchdown. Jackson's longest run of the day went for 11 yards. He also had two receptions for 13 yards. 

Jackson will take on the Giants Week 5. 

Matt Ryan
News
Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan tossed three touchdowns Week 4 against the Vikings.

Ryan completed 25 of 41 passes for 298 yards and three touchdowns. Ryan also threw two interceptions during the contest.

Julio Jones
News
Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones led the way for Atlanta Week 4.

Jones caught six balls for 82 yards. Both figures led the club. Jones wound up being a strong intermediate target for Matt Ryan. Three of his receptions went for at least 15 yards. All but one of his catches resulted in a first down. Despite the strong game, Jones did not haul in one of Ryan's three touchdowns.

Jones will look for more Week 5 against the Giants.

Patrick DiMarco
News
The Falcons backup pass catchers didn't make a big impact Week 4 against the Vikings.

Levine Toilolo managed to catch one pass for 12 yards, but that was it. Patrick DiMarco played a larger role, pulling in a 1 yard score in the second quarter. It was his only caught of the contest. 

Both players will look for more Week 5 against the Giants.

Matt Bryant
News
Falcons kicker Matt Bryant hit all four of his extra point attempts Week 4 against the Vikings.

Bryant did not receive any opportunities for field goals, and was limited to just extra points during the contest. Bryant has not hit a field goal since Week 2 after missing his only attempt Week 3. He'll take on the Giants Week 4. 

Paul Soliai
News
The Falcons' first splash in free agency this spring was a big one -- figuratively and literally. The team has agreed to terms with defensive tackle Paul Soliai, formerly with the Dolphins, and offensive lineman Jon Asamoah, formerly with the Chiefs, ESPN reports. 

Soliai was reportedly on the Falcons' radar for a while. A pure run stuffer, Soliai has missed one game over the last four years. Asamoah, a product from Rich East High School in Park Forest, Illinois, started nine of 14 games for the Chiefs last year and 15 games the year before that.  

Courtney Roby
News
The Falcons backups made an impact Thursday against the Buccaneers.

With the team up by a ton, Atlanta started using their subs in the third quarter. Jacquizz Rodgers received five carries for 6 yards. Rodgers also caught a pass for 3 yards.

Eric Weems seemed to be the biggest beneficiary, hauling in four passes for 69 yards. Fullback Patrick DiMarco gained 35 yards on three catches. Levine Toilolo also contributed, catching two passes for 25 yards. Courtney Roby picked up 11 yards on one reception. 

They'll take on the Vikings Week 4.
