Falcons Place Desmond Trufant on IR

The Atlanta Falcons have signed center Trevor Robinson and cornerback Blidi Wreh-Wilson to the active roster. The team has also signed offensive lineman Kevin Graf to the practice squad. In order to make these moves, the Falcons waived punter Matt Wile and placed cornerback Desmond Trufant on injured reserve.

Robinson was signed by the Cincinnati Bengals following the 2012 draft out of Notre Dame. The Nebraska native spent two years with the Bengals, until he was signed by the San Diego Chargers off of Cincinnati's practice squad in 2014. Robinson spent two seasons with the Chargers.

Wreh-Wilson was drafted by the Tennessee Titans in the third round of the 2013 draft out of Connecticut. The last three years, Wreh-Wilson has played in 34 games with 14 starts and has recorded 73 total tackles, one interception, and one forced fumble.

Graf was signed by the Philadelphia Eagles following the 2014 draft and spent time on their practice squad.

Wile was recently signed by the Falcons for added depth, while Matt Bosher's injury healed. In the game against the Arizona Cardinals, Wile averaged 58.0 yards per punt and had a long of 59 yards.

Trufant has played and started in nine games this year. The former first round pick from Washington has recorded 25 total tackles, four passes defensed, two forced fumbles, and one interception this season. Trufant injured himself in week nine against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (shoulder) and before missing the game in week 10, he had never missed a game in his four-year career.
