Falcons Designate Rookie Tight End To Return From Injured Reserve

Ready to make his NFL debut.

The Atlanta Falcons have designated tight end John FitzPatrick to return from the injured reserve Tuesday.

FitzPatrick has been on the Falcons' injured reserve since the beginning of September due to an undisclosed injury, but Tuesday marks the start of the 21-day window for the team to add him back to the active roster.

With fellow tight end Kyle Pitts done for the season, the Falcons could look to get the rookie tight end some extra snaps over the last few games.

The twenty-two-year-old out of Georgia was the Falcons' sixth-round pick in the 2022 NFL Draft. He could be a massive threat to opposing teams if utilized correctly, as the tight end measures in at 6-foot-7 and 250 pounds.
