Falcons cornerback Desmond Trufant is set to have season-ending surgery to repair a torn pectoral muscle and was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

He has been replaced in the lineup by Jalen Collins in the past two games against Philadelphia and Arizona.

In addition to placing Trufant on injured reserve, the Falcons waived punter Matt Wile and signed center Trevor Robinson and cornerback Blidi Wreh-Wilson to the 53-man roster.

The Falcons also signed offensive lineman Kevin Graf to the practice squad.
