Falcons running back Cordarrelle Patterson has been placed on injured reserve and will miss at least the next four games, the team announced.
Cordarrelle Patterson’s strange absence in Atlanta’s Week 4 win has an explanation that will force the dynamic playmaker out of action for a while.
Patterson will miss at least the next four games while on IR before he’s eligible to return to the field.
After proving himself as a capable running and receiving threat in his first season with the Falcons in 2021, Patterson returned to fill the role of an offensive weapon in a unit that also welcomed rookie receiver Drake London into the fold. Patterson resumed his productive role, rushing 22 times for 120 yards and a touchdown in Week 1, and racking up 141 yards and another TD on 17 attempts in Week 3. He rushed just nine times for 38 yards and a score in Sunday’s game before exiting.
