The Atlanta Falcons have officially waived running back Jeremy Langford from injured reserve, according to Charean Williams of Pro Football Talk.
The Falcons waived Langford back in May with an injury designation, and none of the other 31 NFL teams claimed him, so he reverted to the Falcons’ injured reserve list.
Jeremy Langford was signed to the Falcons’ practice squad in late November, and in the wake of Ito Smith’s season-ending injury, was promoted to the active roster ahead of Week 16 against Carolina. He only appeared in one game, the season finale against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, where he had nine carries for 25 yards.
The Falcons parting with Langford isn’t a surprise, when you consider the running back depth the team has. This offseason the Falcons added running backs Qadree Ollison and part-timer Marcus Green, to an already crowded stable of Devonta Freeman, Ito Smith, Brian Hill, Kenjon Barner, and Tony Brooks-James.
Before joining the Falcons, Jeremy Langford had stints on the Chicago Bears (2015–2016), Baltimore Ravens (2017), and was a practice squad member for the New York Jets (2017) and Miami Dolphins (2018).
