  • Falcons' Grady Jarrett: Gets ACL surgery

    Jarrett announced Tuesday via social media that he underwent successful surgery to address a torn ACL in his right knee.

    Jarrett was placed on injured reserve last week, just two days after he tore his ACL in the Falcons' Week 8 loss to the Titans. He'll now begin the recovery process from surgery, but assuming he hits no snags in his rehab, Jarrett should have a chance at being fully cleared when training camps open in late July. The 30-year-old defensive tackle appeared in eight games for Atlanta this season, logging 23 total tackles and 1.5 sacks.

  • Falcons' Grady Jarrett: Moved on IR

    The Falcons placed Jarrett (knee) on injured reserve Tuesday, Terrin Waack of the team's official site reports.

    Head coach Arthur Smith confirmed Monday that Jarrett tore his ACL in the first quarter of the Falcons' Week 8 loss to the Titans on Sunday. Jarrett had only missed three games in his career since being taken by the Falcons in the fifth round of the 2015 NFL Draft and started in 120 of 135 appearances. He finishes the 2023 season with 23 tackles (nine solo), including 1.5 sacks, in eight games.

  • Falcons' Grady Jarrett: Suffers torn ACL

    Jarrett (knee) sustained a season-ending ACL tear during Sunday's loss to the Titans, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

    Jarrett's loss is a huge blow for the Falcons' defensive front, but it primes LaCale London (knee) to be thrust into an expanded role starting in Week 9 versus Minnesota, assuming he can get healthy himself. The 30-year-old Jarrett, who has two years left on his contract but carries a relatively painless $8.25 million dead cap hit for next season if he gets cut, will work to recover in time for the start of the 2024 campaign.

  • Falcons' Grady Jarrett: Won't return to Week 8 action

    Jarrett has been ruled out from returning to Sunday's game against Tennessee due to a knee injury, Tori McElhaney of the Falcons' official site reports.

    Jarrett injured his knee early in the contest, and he's since been deemed unable to return. LaCale London took over for Jarrett after the latter's departure but headed to the medical tent with an injury of his own in the third quarter. The Falcons' defensive interior could be razor thin if London's injury keeps him sidelined as well.
