Falcons make moves at WR
By Pat Yasinskas
As expected, the Falcons made a series of roster moves Tuesday that ended up with veteran receiver Brian Finneran on the injured reserve list.
It’s been pretty obvious that was the direction the Falcons would have to go in after Finneran suffered a knee injury in Sunday’s loss to New Orleans. Finneran had been a role player as a backup receiver, but he had played a key role on special teams.
The Falcons elevated Troy Bergeron from the practice squad to take Finneran’s roster spot and Bergeron could end up getting time on special teams immediately. The Falcons also signed receiver James Swinton to fill Bergeron’s spot on the practice squad.
