The Falcons announced their moving roster as Week 16 preparations begin

The Falcons have formally placed Caleb Huntley on injured reserve, the team announced Tuesday, an expected move after the running back suffered an Achilles tendon injury early in Sunday’s game against the New Orleans Saints.

Head coach Arthur Smith said Monday that Huntley was done for the year, and the transaction was made the next day.

The team did not add another cornerback in a corresponding move, opting instead to sign edge rusher David Anenih off Pittsburgh’s practice squad. The rookie and University of Houston product had 20.5 sacks in college and has yet to make his NFL debut.

This gives the Falcons an opportunity to evaluate him over the final weeks of the season to see if he can add on in 2023.

The Falcons should be fine at running back, with Cordarrelle Patterson, Tyler Allgeier and Avery Williams available as rushing options.

Smith also announced on Wednesday that John FitzPatrick will return to practice for the sixth round after spending the season on injured reserve. He is eligible to be on the active roster during a 21-day practice period that has just begun and extends beyond the end of the regular season, but is under no obligation to do so.

The 6-foot-7, 250-pound Georgia alum is a quality blocker with pass-catching ability, an intrinsic talent that dealt with injuries during his last season with the Bulldogs.
