Biggs: Falcons place Finneran on injured reserve

The Atlanta Falcons have placed veteran wide receiver Brian Finneran on season-ending injured reserve after he suffered a knee injury in Sunday’s loss to the New Orleans Saints.

The club promoted wide receiver Troy Bergeron from the practice squad to take his place. Bergeron has been up and down on the 53-man roster several times this season, trading places with running back Verron Haynes in the past.

Finneran’s season ended with 11 receptions for 111 yards.

Wide receiver James Swinton was signed to the practice squad.
