Falcons shore up depth at WR
The AJC reports that the Falcons cut defensive end Brandon Miller today from the roster and promoted practice squad wide receiver Eric Weems to the roster in his place.
Miller was added to the team’s roster last week when they opted to release Adam Jennings, who had been underperforming as a punt returner. Miller had spent the first ten weeks of the season on the team’s practice squad, as did Weems.
Weems addition to the roster was to shore up depth at wide receiver. Roddy White missed practice on Wednesday due to a back injury. Although the AJC reported earlier that White is not expected to miss time. Laurent Robinson also missed practice on Wednesday due to a hamstring injury and is not expected to play this weekend against the Carolina Panthers. Brian Finneran was also listed on the team’s injury report as limited in practice on Wednesday due to an injured hamstring as well.
