The Falcons did promote fullback Patrick DiMarco from the practice squad

The Falcons did promote fullback Patrick DiMarco from the practice squad, but don’t expect to see him play much. If Atlanta needs a fullback in its normal offensive sets, Snelling can fill in for Ewing. DiMarco might see the field when Atlanta tries to move the ball in short-yardage situations in its jumbo package.

Losing Biermann will be one of the harder injuries to wholesale jordan shoes. Biermann was playing a hybrid role in defensive coordinator Mike Nolan’s defense, and he was handling the new role well.

Biermann played mostly at outside linebacker but also spent time at defensive end. He was called upon to contain the run, rush the passer (from both positions) and get into coverage, both on short routes and in deep-cover situations of Cheap Mens Jordans.

The Falcons don’t have one player that can do all those things right now. And even if they have a few with the skill set, Biermann worked with the coaching staff all offseason to perfect this new hybrid role. There’s not enough time to get anyone else up to speed.

Jonathan Massaquoi will take the majority of Biermann’s snaps at defensive end. He played 12 snaps in Week 1, according to Pro Football Focus (subscription required) and 45 in Week 2. He registered a quarterback hit and three hurries against the Rams and graded out better than any linemen on the roster.

Stephen Nicholas will step in and see more playing time to replace Biermann at linebacker. Nicholas was banged up for much of the preseason and has played just four snaps this season. He was not listed on the injury report this week, however.

Biermann had surgery Friday to repair his Achilles tendon.
