The Atlanta Falcons have announced defensive end Kroy Biermann and fullback Bradie Ewing are out for the season.
Biermann tore his Achilles, and Ewing has a separated shoulder in yesterday’s win over the St. Louis Rams.
Although he’s listed as defensive end on the roster, Biermann played multiple roles. He was defensive coordinator Mike Nolan’s do-it-all player, playing linebacker and even dropping back as a safety in certain packages.
Biermann’s versatility will be sorely missed by the Falcons. He had seven tackles on the season.
For Ewing, it’s the second consecutive year he’s been placed on injured reserve. The fullback missed all of his rookie season last year after getting injured in preseason. On the season, he notched two receptions for 29 yards.
