Falcons Place G Andy Levitre On IR, Sign G Zac Kerin


The Atlanta Falcons announced Tuesday that they’ve placed G Andy Levitre on injured reserve and signed G Zac Kerin to a contract.

“After receiving the tests results on Andy’s injury from Sunday’s game, it has been determined that he will miss the remainder of the season with a triceps injury,” said Falcons coach Dan Quinn. “Andy worked extremely hard to get back on the field after a similar injury last year, and there is no doubt his leadership will continue to be felt this year. We have a ton of respect for Andy and what he stands for, and what he means to our team.”

Levitre, 32, is a former second-round pick of the Bills back in 2009. He was entering the final year of his six-year, $46.8 million contract and set to make a base salary of $5.8 million for the 2018 season when he agreed to a restructured contract back in March.

Levitre’s 2017 season ended him with being placed on injured reserve with a triceps injury.

In 2018, Levitre has appeared in two games for the Falcons.
