The Falcons have placed rookie wide receiver Devin Fuller on injured reserve, and have brought back fullback Will Ratelle.

Fuller was selected by the Falcons in the seventh round (238th overall) of the draft out of UCLA. In three preseason games he has caught five passes for 66 yards and one touchdown. Fuller injured his shoulder in the third preseason game versus the Miami Dolphins.

Ratelle was signed by the Atlanta Falcons as a college free agent following the draft. Last year for North Dakota, he surpassed the century mark in tackles for second-consecutive season, breaking his own UND Division I single-season record and ranking fifth in the Big Sky with 110 tackles. He currently plays fullback for Atlanta and has caught one pass for nine yards during the preseason.
