Falcons Tight End Officially Questionable For Week 6

The Atlanta Falcons aren't as bad as everyone expected so far in 2022, but they're just short of being a competitive team, and with young, potential star Kyle Pitts not performing up to the best of his ability thus far, it's even harder for them to build and sustain momentum. Pitts struggled through four weeks, and after missing Week 5, there's a chance he could be out yet again, as the team has officially listed him as questionable ahead of the Week 6 clash with the San Francisco 49ers.

Pitts has been dealing with a hamstring injury for a few weeks now, and if the team want him to be healthy for the rest of the year, there's a good chance that he could be shut down for the Week 6 clash. A year ago, Pitts was lighting the league on fire, and he was on pace to be one of the best tight end's in the league in 2022, but unfortunately, for whatever reason, it just hasn't clicked with new QB Marcus Mariota as of yet.

He's still incredibly young and full of talent, so the sky is the limit for the former Florida standout, but after a few weeks of limited practice, it looks like he may miss his second straight game to deal with a very dangerous injury with the hamstring.
