Falcons place Josh Harris on injured reserve, promote Justin Zimmer to active roster


FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. – The Falcons made a handful of roster moves Tuesday, including placing long snapper Josh Harris on the injured reserve list.

The Falcons placed the 29-year-old Harris, who signed a three-year extension earlier this season, on IR and signed long snapper Jon Condo in a corresponding move. Condo, 37, is a two-time Pro Bowler and has played for three teams in his NFL career, including the Dallas Cowboys, New England Patriots and most recently the Oakland Raiders.

The Falcons also promoted defensive tackle Justin Zimmer, 26, from the practice squad to the active roster and waived safety Keith Tandy. Wide receiver Julian Williams was also signed and he'll fill Zimmer's spot on the practice squad. Williams is a native of Suwanee, Ga., and played collegiately at Florida International University. Williams was signed by the Falcons as an undrafted free agent out of FIU in the preseason. He caught one pass for 4 yards in the Falcons' final preseason game.
