Biggs: Falcons promote WR Bergeron from practice squad

The Atlanta Falcons have swapped out running back Verron Haynes and wide receiver Troy Bergeron again.

Coming this time was Bergeron, who was promoted from the practice squad. He was active for one game earlier this season in Week 10 against Carolina. He is a former Arena League star with the Georgia Force.

Haynes was released to make room. He has competed in six games this season.

Running back Michael Turner is questionable for the game with a sprained ankle and is expected to be a game-time decision. Jerious Norwood is also questionable with a hip injury. By letting go of Haynes might signal the team expects at least one of the backs to play.
