Starting punter Bradley Pinion‘s sudden illness put his status in doubt for Week 8, so the team was forced to sign Pat O’Donnell to the practice squad and release linebacker Donavan Mutin on Saturday.
O’Donnell and linebacker Andre Smith Jr. were then elevated to the 53-man roster for Week 8, per ESPN’s Michael Rothstein.
Falcons P Bradley Pinion (illness) is now questionable.
Atlanta added P Pat O’Donnell to the practice squad & elevated him using a PS elevation. Also elevated LB Andre Smith Jr.
