The Falcons have signed four players to the practice squad, the organization announced on Wednesday. This comes after the Falcons announced their initial 53-man roster on Tuesday.
Additionally, Atlanta announced it had reached an injury settlement and waived DL Jalen Dalton from injured reserve after he was injured against New York in the Falcons second game of the preseason.
Here is the first list of Falcons practice squad players:
|WR||Cameron Batson||5-8||175||5||Texas Tech|
|TE||MyCole Pruitt||6-2||245||7||Southern Illinois|
Per NFL rules for the 2022 season, a practice squad player can be elevated for a maximum of three regular season games. Upon a fourth elevation, the team must sign the player to the active 53-man roster. A team's practice squad can consist of up to 16 players, an increase from 12 the year before.
Teams can have up to 10 players on the practice squad with two or fewer seasons in the league, and up to six players with unlimited seasons in the league. A practice squad player is eligible to negotiate and sign to any team's active roster at any time during the regular season. However, said player is not allowed to sign to another team's practice squad.
