| Falcons activate Cordarrelle Patterson off IR|
Expected to play in Week 9
By: Mike Krueger | Sat Nov 5, 2:15 pm
|The #Falcons are activating RB Cordarrelle Patterson off IR today, sources say. He’ll be back in action tomorrow vs. the #Chargers after practicing all week. (Mike Garafolo on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: The only team that runs the ball more than Atlanta is Chicago. Usage will be a concern as both Tyler Allgeier and Caleb Huntley are expected to remain involved in the offense making Patterson a risky Flex play in Week 9 against the Chargers.
| Kyle Pitts Out for Week 5, hamstring injury|
Missed practice all week

|Tight end Kyle Pitts has been formally ruled out of Sunday's game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the Falcons announced on Friday. Pitts didn't practice all week due to a hamstring injury, falling in line with the fact he's now unavailable for this divisional matchup. (AtlantaFalcons.com)|
FFToday's Take: Being ruled out Friday, doesn't bode well for Week 6. With Cordarrelle Patterson placed on IR earlier in the week, the Falcons now find themselves with only one playmaker, rookie Drake London, as they take on the Bucs in Week 5. Tyler Allgeier and Caleb Huntley will handle the running back duties.
| Cordarrelle Patterson placed on IR, knee injury|
Will miss the next four games

|Falcons’ running back Cordarrelle Patterson has been placed on injured reserve due to his knee injury, meaning he’s out at least the next four games. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: Patterson will be eligible to return in Week 9 against the Chargers. In the meantime, Tyler Allgeier and Caleb Huntley will handle the bulk of the rushing duties the next few weeks against the Bucs, 49ers, Bengals and Panthers. The Falcons ran the ball 14-straight times yesterday against the Browns. Huntley posted a 10-56-1 line with 0 targets in Week 4.
