Falcons Ink Veteran Guard Zane Beadles

With both starters on injured reserve, the Falcons signed veteran guard Zane Beadles on Tuesday, D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

The Falcons released defensive tackle Michael Bennett to make room for Beadles, who played in all 16 games for the 49ers last season and made five starts.

Beadles, 31, was a second-round pick out of Utah by the Broncos in the 2010 NFL draft. He’s 6-foot-4 and 305 pounds. He’s played in 128 games, including 115 starts.

Beadles played for the Broncos (2010-13), Jaguars (2014-15) and 49ers (2016-17). He made the Pro Bowl in 2012.

Falcons Kicker Matt Bryant to Test Out Sore Hamstring on Thursday

Falcons place-kicker Matt Bryant is set to test his sore right hamstring on Thursday, coach Dan Quinn said on Monday, D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

“I think it treated him well, the reason that I say that is that he’s making a turn for the better,” Quinn said of Bryant getting some rest over the bye week. “We are not going to rule him out this week.”

Kicker Giorgio Tavecchio was named the NFC’s special teams player of the week last week after making field goals of 40, 50 and 56 yards in the 23-20 win over the New York Giants on Oct. 22 before the break in place of Bryant.

Bryant suffered a strained hamstring against Tampa Bay.

“We’ll see where it goes through Thursday afternoon,” Quinn said. “That’s usually the day that he gets most of the kicking. Until we have a better sense for that.”

Falcons Place Running Back Devonta Freeman on IR with Foot Injuries

A tough season for running back Devonta Freeman got even worse on Tuesday, as the team announced he will be placed on injured reserve after sustaining foot and groin injuries against the Steelers.

“Following the game against Pittsburgh, where Devonta injured his foot, we thought he was just having general soreness in his groin area,” said Falcons coach Dan Quinn. “As the week went on it continued so we decided to have him get some tests. It has been determined that he will need a procedure that will result in us placing him on injured reserve. We are hopeful he will be able to return this season, but we will have a better feel for that in the coming weeks.”

In his two games played this season, Freeman carried the ball 14 times for 68 yards and caught five passes for 23 yards.

During his five-year career with the Falcons, Freeman has gained 3,316 rushing yards and 30 touchdowns on 767 carries. He has also caught 198 passes for 1,605 yards and seven touchdowns.

Falcons Kicker Matt Bryant Suffering From a Strained Hamstring

The injury-ravaged Falcons absorbed another blow on Monday when head coach Dan Quinn announced veteran kicker Matt Bryant would miss the team’s Week 7 game against the New York Giants with a strained hamstring according to Kelsey Conway of atlantafalcons.com.

The injury seemed to happen when Bryant successfully kicked a 57-yard field goal late in the fourth quarter in a game the Falcons held on to win 34-29 over the Buccaneers. The 43-year-old Bryant could be seem limping on the sidelines afterwards and later headed into the locker room early accompanied by trainers. Former Oakland Raiders kicker Giorgio Tavecchio is the favorite to replace Bryant against the Giants next Monday. The Falcons are on bye in Week 8 so Bryant will hopefully be able to return with a couple of weeks rest. The 17-year veteran has been the Falcons placekicker since 2009.

Devonta Freeman Will Play Sunday vs Steelers Says Falcons Coach Dan Quinn

Falcons head coach Dan Quinn confirmed Thursday that running back Devonta Freeman will suit up for the Week 5 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers according to Vaughn McClure of ESPN.

Freeman has missed the last three games recovering from a knee injury but has said he feels “good” and “explosive”. It is possible the Falcons keep him on somewhat of a pitch count with Freeman as the 1A RB to Tevin Coleman’s 1B and there are concerns that the knee injury could be an issue all season.

But with the Falcons sitting at 1-3 despite a potent offense and desperately in need a win to keep from falling out of contention in the very competitive NFC South even this early in the season, they need Freeman on the field for whatever reps he can give them.
