To make room for running back Aaron Stecker, the Falcons placed rookie safety William Moore on the injured reserve. Moore had been sidelined most recently with a hamstring injury.
Moore was a second round pick for the team this past April, and marks the second of this year’s draft class to wind up on the injured reserve. First round pick Peria Jerry was injured in the team’s second game.
Moore had only been active for two games, and recorded two stops on special teams vs. the Chicago Bears, his lone production for the season. Moore had knee surgery in August, and missed much of the summer, eventually losing his competition for a starting safety position to Thomas DeCoud.
The team also adjusted their practice squad today. Cornerback Glenn Sharpe was placed on the practice squad-injured list, and the team added safety Eric Brock to replace him.
