Falcons sign P Pat O’Donnell to practice squad

The Atlanta Falcons were forced to make a sudden change to their 16-man practice squad on Saturday afternoon after punter Bradley Pinion came down with an illness.

The team signed punter Pat O’Donnell to the practice squad and released linebacker Donavan Mutin in a corresponding move, per ESPN’s Michael Rothstein.

O’Donnell was one of two practice squad players the Falcons elevated for Sunday’s game against the Titans. The other was linebacker Andre Smith Jr., who will help provide depth with Tae Davis ruled out.
