Falcons Place CB Hayden and LB Peterson on IR

Mike Peterson Goes on IR for the Falcons

The Falcons have placed cornerback Kelvin Hayden and linebacker Mike Peterson on season-ending injured reserve, a league source said on Tuesday night.

Signed to a one-year, minimum salary benefit contract in August, Hayden had 24 tackles and two interceptions in eight games before missing the last five games with a toe injury.

The 35-year-old Peterson had started four of 15 games for the Falcons this season, totaling 24 tackles and an interception. Peterson reportedly injured his shoulder in Monday night’s 45-16 loss to the New Orleans. Both Hayden and Peterson are scheduled to be unrestricted free agents in the offseason.
