Fusco becomes Falcons' sixth player on injured reserve

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) — The Atlanta Falcons have added more depth to their offensive line after placing right guard Brandon Fusco on injured reserve.

Fusco suffered a broken right ankle in Sunday's win over the New York Giants, and the team announced Tuesday he would miss the remainder of the season.

The Falcons, who are on their bye week, on Wednesday signed offensive linemen Rees Odhiambo and Austin Pasztor, who played in seven games with Atlanta in 2017. Odhiambo spent the last four weeks on the Colts practice squad.

Fusco is Atlanta's sixth player to be placed on IR this season, joining safeties Keanu Neal and Ricardo Allen, linebacker Deion Jones, offensive guard Andy Levitre and running back Devonta Freeman.
