The Falcons were relatively healthy compared to the Dolphins entering Sunday’s game, but the team was forced to play without two key starters in right tackle Kaleb McGary and outside linebacker Dante Fowler. McGary was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list last week and Fowler (knee) went on injured reserve.

Nonetheless, Atlanta was able to come away with a 30-28 victory over the weekend, and on Monday, the team activated McGary from the COVID reserve. The Falcons also released safety T.J. Green, making way for McGary’s return.

According to ESPN’s Michael Rothstein, the team cut kicker Elliott Fry from the practice squad and signed defensive back Luther Kirk to fill his vacancy. Kirk previously spent time with the Minnesota Vikings as an undrafted free agent out of Illinois State.

As for injured defensive backs A.J. Terrell and Erik Harris, we didn’t get an official update, but head coach Arthur Smith said he feels good about the health of the secondary going forward.
