Falcons place Brandon Fusco on IR, sign two offensive linemen


FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. -- Dan Quinn announced Tuesday that Falcons right guard Brandon Fusco would miss the remainder of the season after suffering an ankle injury in the team's win on Monday night, and he was officially placed on injured reserve Wednesday.


Fusco is the sixth Falcons starter to go on IR this season, and he is the second offensive guard to suffer a season-ending injury after Andy Levitre's season came to an end in Week 2.

In corresponding moves, the Falcons have signed offensive linemen Austin Pasztor and Rees Odhiambo.

Pasztor played in seven games with the Falcons in 2017, and he has played six seasons in the NFL, spending three years in Jacksonville and two years in Cleveland prior to arriving in Atlanta.

Odhiambo, 26, was selected in the third round of the 2016 NFL Draft by the Seattle Seahawks. He played in 15 games for the Seahawks and made seven starts in 2017. Most recently, Odhiambo was a member of the Indianapolis Colts' practice squad.
