The Atlanta Falcons official twitter has recently been shooting down trade rumors and denying reports.

It turns out that LB Brooks Reed will remain on the active roster, after previous reports that he would be sent to short-term injured reserve. Per the Atlanta Falcons official twitter account.

This is an odd turn of events. Is this good news or bad news? Maybe Reed is expected to return sooner rather than later. Or maybe the team wants to use the short-term injured reserve spot for another player.

It hopefully means that Reed has a shot at playing in the first half of the season.
