Douglas Out; Peters Activated to 53-Man Roster

Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Harry Douglas is out for Sunday’s game against the Philadelphia Eagles. Douglas suffered a left ankle and knee injury late in the game versus the Oakland Raiders on October 14. Apparently, the bye week wasn’t enough time for him to recover. On the season, the slot receiver has 16 catches for 149 yards.

The Falcons have also activated defensive tackle Corey Peters to the 53-man roster. Peters suffered a stress fracture in his foot over the offseason and missed minicamp, organized team activities, training camp, preseason, and the first six games of the season. He returned to practice on Monday.

To make room for Peters, the Falcons released cornerback Terrence Johnson.
