M. Hilton - DB
Hilton suffered an elbow injury in Monday's win over the Buccaneers, Ray Fittipaldo of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
Hilton had a monster outing in Monday's victory, recovering a fumble and intercepting a Ryan Fitzpatrick pass. However, it appears the defensive back suffered an elbow injury in the process. It's unclear exactly how severe the ailment is, but another update should come once the Steelers release their first injury report of the week.

R. Jarvis - LB
Jarvis was waived by the Falcons on Tuesday, Will McFadden of the team's official site reports.
Jarvis was promoted prior to Atlanta's Week 3 matchup against the Saints, but has been replaced on the 53-man roster by fellow linebacker Bruce Carter. The undrafted rookie will now become a free agent, and look to earn a depth role elsewhere in the league.

B. Carter - LB
Carter was signed to Atlanta's active roster Tuesday, Will McFadden of the team's official site reports.
Carter bring experience and depth to a Falcons' linebacker corps lacking Deion Jones (foot). The 30-year-old veteran has racked up 306 tackles, 20 pass defenses, five sacks, five interceptions and one touchdown during his nine years in the league.

C. Ridley - WR
Ridley joins Baker Mayfield, Josh Allen, Saquon Barkley and Donte Jackson as NFL Rookie of the Week nominees for Week 3, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.
Ridley made his presence felt in Week 2 -- accounting for 64 receiving yards and a touchdown -- but in Week 3 he put himself in elite company, hauling in three touchdown catches within the first 33 minutes of a 43-37 loss to New Orleans. Since being held without a reception in the season opener against Philadelphia, Ridley has recorded 11 catches for 210 yards and four touchdowns. The rookie's four touchdowns tie him with A.J. Green for the league lead as we approach the quarter pole of the regular season. Atlanta's Week 4 opponent, Cincinnati has not allowed a 100-yard receiver in 2018, but the defense has allowed multiple receiving touchdowns in all three outings thus far.

A. Davis - QB
Davis agreed to a contract Tuesday with the Titans, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
Davis' addition gives the Titans some much-needed depth at quarterback with Marcus Mariota still limited by an elbow injury and Blaine Gabbert embedded in the NFL's concussion protocol. Since Mariota was able to finish the Titans' Week 3 upset win over the Jaguars, he seems on track to be available Sunday against the Eagles, but he hasn't started either of the past two weeks due to the complications his elbow presents when he throws. With that in mind, Davis could very well end up seeing snaps versus Philadelphia in the event Gabbert isn't available. Davis spent the 2017 season in Seattle as the backup to Russell Wilson, but only logged five offensive snaps throughout the campaign.

S. Neasman - DB
Neasman was signed to Atlanta's active roster Tuesday, Will McFadden of the team's official site reports.
Neasman's promotion to the 53-man roster coincides with the placement of Ricardo Allen (Achilles) on injured reserve. An undrafted rookie, Neasman will serve as a depth safety and special-teams asset for the Falcons.

C. Blake - WR
Blake was waived from Atlanta's practice squad Tuesday, Jason Butt of The Athletic reports.
Blake joined the Falcons' practice squad in the beginning of the regular season, but does not seem to have impressed enough to stick around. The undrafted free agent will search for an opportunity elsewhere in the league.

R. Allen - DB
The Falcons placed Allen (Achilles) on injured reserve Tuesday. He'll require surgery to repair a torn Achilles' tendon and is expected to require a minimum of six months of recovery time, according to D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
Allen's injury is devastating to the Falcons defense, as he has been instrumental with helping the secondary make pre-snap adjustments since taking over as a starter in 2015. His absence leaves the Falcons without three key defensive playmakers, as fellow starting safety Keanu Neal (knee) and starting linebacker Deion Jones (foot) had already been moved to IR earlier in the campaign. Allen is hopeful to be ready to go for the start of OTAs in May, but it wouldn't be surprising if the Falcons withheld him from full-contact work until training camp. With Allen and Neal out of the mix, Jordan Richards and Damontae Kazee will step in as the team's starting safeties for the immediate future.
