Falcons make roster moves
By Pat Yasinskas
A very quick update to our previous item on Atlanta fullback Ovie Mughelli. The Falcons officially announced he’s been placed on injured reserve.
They also have placed guard Mike Johnson on injured reserve. To fill their roster spots, the Falcons signed fullback Mike Cox and offensive lineman Kirk Chambers.
Cox, a Georgia Tech product, previously appeared in 32 games with the Kansas City Chiefs. Chambers gives the Falcons some veteran depth at tackle. That’s notable because left tackle Sam Baker missed the last game with a back injury and struggled prior to that.
Chambers has been in the league since 2004 and has spent time, mostly as a backup with Cleveland, Buffalo and Cincinnati. He was released by Detroit prior to this season.
Detroit defensive linemen Ndamukong Suh and Cliff Avril were not available for comment on Chambers joining Atlanta’s offensive line.
