  • Falcons' Troy Andersen: Makes most of rookie campaign

    Andersen tallied 69 tackles (40 solo), one forced fumble and one pass defense across 17 appearances during the 2022 campaign.

    Andersen quickly carved out a role in Atlanta's defense during his rookie campaign and eventually overtook Mykal Walker as a starter to end the season. The 2022 second-round pick played at least 80 percent of the Falcons' defensive snaps in five games and totaled 34 tackles during those contests, including a career-high 13 stops against San Francisco in Week 6. Given his successful rookie campaign, it's safe to presume Andersen will have a significant role in Atlanta's defense to begin 2023, especially if the Falcons are unable to retain Rashaan Evans.

  • Falcons' Troy Andersen: Productive day in first start

    Andersen recorded 12 tackles (six solo) during Sunday's 28-14 win over the 49ers.

    With starter Mykal Walker having been ruled out for Sunday's game against San Fransisco, Andersen was given the start at linebacker and tied with teammate Rashaan Evans for a team-high 12 tackles in Week 6. If Walker is unable to gain medical clearance ahead of next Sunday's contest versus the Bengals, the rookie second-rounder should once again serve as a key contributor in Atlanta's defensive unit.

  • Falcons' Troy Andersen: Set to make first career start

    With Mykal Walker (groin) ruled out for Week 6, Andersen is in line to make his first career NFL start Sunday against the 49ers, D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

    Andersen, a rookie second-round pick, saw an increased role after Walker left the team's Week 5 loss early and finished with season highs in tackles (five) and defensive snaps (27). He'll draw the start alongside Rashaan Evans in the middle of Atlanta's defense and will likely be in store for another productive game against San Francisco's run-first offense.
