Falcons place RB Damien Williams on IR with injured rib


FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) — The Atlanta Falcons have placed running back Damien Williams on injured reserve with a rib injury. Williams was expected to be the primary backup to Cordarrelle Patterson before he suffered the injury on Atlanta’s second possession of last week’s 27-26 loss to New Orleans. Williams had only two carries for 2 yards before suffering the injury. Rookie running back Tyler Algeier was inactive against New Orleans but could make his debut in Sunday’s game at the Los Angeles Rams. The Falcons elevated defensive lineman Abdullah Anderson and running back Caleb Huntley from the practice squad to the active roster.
