Falcons announce two practice squad elevations for Week 8

The Atlanta Falcons (4-3) have announced two practice squad elevations ahead of Sunday’s road matchup against the Tennessee Titans (2-4), but not before making a minor few transactions.

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.

Check out the Falcons’ updated 53-man roster, depth chart, injury report and starting lineups for Week 8.
