QB - SEA
Week 12 Outlook
Danny Etling is being promoted from the Falcons practice squad to their 53-man active roster.
The Falcons claimed Etling off waivers during training camp, but he did not make the final cut. He landed on the practice squad. His promotion is a sign that Matt Ryan will not start Sunday’s Week 8 contest against the Seahawks. If Ryan is unable to go, Etling would backup veteran Matt Schaub Week 8.
Danny Etling was claimed off waivers by Atlanta after being cut by New England earlier this week.
The LSU product was trying to transition from QB to WR with the Patriots, similar to Julian Edelman. The 2018 seventh-rounder will develop on the bench behind Matt Ryan.
