Falcons Promote DT Justin Zimmer, Place LS Josh Harris On IR

The Atlanta Falcons announced Tuesday that they’ve promoted DT Justin Zimmer to their active roster and placed LS Josh Harris on injured reserve.

Other roster moves from the Falcons include:

  • Falcons signed LS Jon Condo 
  • Falcons waived S Keith Tandy.
  • Falcons signed WR Julian Williams to their practice squad.

Here’s the Falcons updated practice squad:

  1. QB Kurt Benkert
  2. OT Daniel Brunskill
  3. TE Jaeden Graham
  4. TE Alex Gray (International)
  5. WR Devin Gray
  6. DT Jacob Tuioti-Mariner
  7. LB Jermaine Grace
  8. G Sean Harlow
  9. DB Taveze Calhoun
  10. RB Jeremy Langford
  11. WR Julian Williams

Zimmer, 25, originally signed on with the Bills as an undrafted free agent out of Ferris State back in 2016. He lasted just a few months in Buffalo before he was waived at the start of the season.

The Saints later signed Zimmer to their practice squad towards the end of the 2016 season and brought him back on a futures contract a month later. Unfortunately, the Saints waived Zimmer last year and sat out the entire 2017 season.

Zimmer signed on with the Falcons this past April and he managed to make their 53-man roster coming out of the preseason. However, he later cut loose and re-signed to their practice squad.

In 2018, Zimmer has appeared in one game for the Falcons.
