Falcons Place CB Darqueze Dennard On IR, Make Practice Squad Moves


The Falcons announced they have placed CB Darqueze Dennard on injured reserve. 

Atlanta also signed DE Austin Edwards to the practice squad and released CB D.J. White and S Deone Bucannon


Dennard picked up a hamstring injury late in Week 3’s loss to the Bears. He’ll be eligible to return after a minimum of three weeks on IR. 

Dennard, 28, was taken with the No. 24 overall pick by the Bengals back in 2014. He played out the final year of his four-year, $7.978 million contract before the Bengals picked up his fifth-year option for the 2018 season. 

Dennard made $8,526,000 million in 2018 before returning to the Bengals on a one year, $4.5 million contract last year. After a deal with the Jaguars fell through, Dennard signed a one-year deal with the Falcons this offseason.

In 2020, Dennard has appeared in three games for the Falcons and recorded 16 total tackles, one interception and three pass defenses.
