Falcons Place Starting CB Darqueze Dennard on IR with Hamstring Injury

The Falcons are placing starting cornerback Darqueze Dennard on injured reserve due to a hamstring injury.

The veteran corner was a standout in Atlanta’s Week 3 loss to Chicago. He recorded six tackles, two pass defenses and one interception, which came on a contested catch against Allen Robinson in the end zone. Dennard was Pro Football Focus’s highest-graded Falcons defender against the Bears, earning a near-elite grade of 82.7. He sustained the injury late in the game and was forced to leave the action.

In addition to placing Dennard on IR, the Falcons signed defensive end Austin Edwards to the practice squad and released cornerback DJ White and linebacker Deone Bucannon.
