Shark Bites

Falcons RB Cordarrelle Patterson injured his ankle in the 1st quarter of Sunday's game vs. the Cowboys. He eventually re-entered but had that ankle re-taped multiple times and finished with just 4 carries and 2 targets. Patterson's status will be worth monitoring this coming week.

Recent Shark Bites

Falcons RB Cordarrelle Patterson admitted that he was “banged up” and unable to play the way he wanted to late last season. C-Pat easily set a career high with 205 touches last year, and the Falcons are happy to limit his offseason reps. In fact, the 31-year-old sat out OTAs/minicamp and has been limited in training camp. “He’s got good work habits,” HC Arthur Smith said in camp. “Everybody is in different parts of their careers. With CP, where he is, at the usage rate he had last year, we are trying to maximize him.” Patterson’s also hoping for more return opportunities, as he needs just one more kick return TD to break the NFL record. “I’ve got a record to break,” he said. “I need one more before I can hang it up. I get one more, I’ll stop doing it.”

The Falcons are re-signing RB Cordarrelle Patterson, NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reports. We'll look for details on the contract, but this was always the best-case scenario for Patterson. He had the rare 9th-year breakout in his Falcons debut last season, posting a 153-618-6 rushing line with 52-548-5 receiving to finish 9th among RBs in PPR points. Atlanta currently only Mike Davis and Damien Williams alongside Patterson in the backfield. We'll see what else the team adds, but Patterson has a chance to play a similar role in 2022.

Update: Patterson got a 2-year, $10.5 million deal, according to insider Aaron Wilson.

Falcons RB Cordarrelle Patterson (ankle) is active for today’s game vs. the Jaguars. He was limited in practice all week and was reportedly a game-time decision coming off the high-ankle sprain. C-Patt carries elevated risk in Week 12 fantasy lineups.

Falcons RB Cordarrelle Patterson (ankle) is a "true game-time decision" for today's tilt with the Jaguars, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Patterson is "feeling much better this week," per Rapoport, but the Falcons are "making sure they are smart about it." We'll get Atlanta's inactives around 11:30 am ET.

Falcons RB Cordarrelle Patterson (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game vs. the Jaguars. He supposedly had a chance to play vs. New England last Thursday night and put in 3 limited practices this week, so we're tentatively expecting Patterson to play. We'll get Atlanta's inactives around 11:30 am ET on Sunday.
