Falcons' Adetokunbo Ogundeji: Lands on IR
The Falcons have placed Ogundeji (foot) on injured reserve, Terrin Waack of the Falcons official website reports.
Ogundeji was carted off the practice field Monday after suffering a foot injury. The 24-year-old has been a starter in Atlanta since being drafted in 2021 as a fifth-round pick out of Notre Dame.

Thus, it would not be surprising to see them bring in some more competition.... See More ... See Less

Ogundeji presumably picked up the shoulder injury during the team's Week 5 loss to Tampa Bay and was limited at each practice ahead of Week 6.

Falcons' Adetokunbo Ogundeji: Draws start in preseason opener
Ogundeji played seven snaps but didn't record any counting stats during Friday's preseason opener against the Lions.
Ogundeji was listed as the starting outside linebacker opposite of Lorenzo Carter and, along with the rest of the starters, played just one defensive series. The 2021 fifth-round pick appeared in 17 games as a rookie and registered 33 tackles and one sack.

Falcons' Adetokunbo Ogundeji: Blocks field goal Sunday
Ogundeji registered two tackles (one solo) and blocked a field-goal attempt during Sunday's 30-28 win over the Dolphins.
Ogundeji was expected to see an increased role during Week 7 with Dante Fowler (knee) on injured reserve. The rookie fifth-round pick's production was lackluster, but he displayed his playmaking ability by blocking a 49-yard field-goal attempt at the beginning of the second quarter.
