Falcons looking for fullback help

October, 25, 2011
The Atlanta Falcons will place fullback Ovie Mughelli on injured reserve, according to Chris Vivlamore.

Mughelli injured a knee in Sunday’s victory against Detroit.

The Falcons haven’t announced the move yet. But it sounds like they’re preparing for it. Reports say they worked out several fullbacks, including Jason McKie and Mike Karney earlier Tuesday.

The Falcons also have Jason Snelling. He’s been used as a backup fullback in the past but he is primarily the main backup to tailback Michael Turner.

As long as we're talking about potential transactions, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers made a couple minor moves Tuesday. They placed fullback/tailback Earnest Graham on injured reserve and waived long-snapper Christian Yount. Take Yount's release as a sign that the Bucs are about to activate Andrew Economos off the physically-unable-to-perform list.
