The Atlanta Falcons have elevated cornerback Tyler Hall and linebacker Edmond Robinson from the practice squad to the active roster for the Carolina game.

Hall was originally signed by the Falcons following the 2020 NFL Draft out of Wyoming and made his NFL debut as a standard practice squad elevation in Week 3 against Chicago.

Robinson was originally selected by the Minnesota Vikings in the seventh round of the 2015 NFL Draft and has recorded six total tackles (four solo), one pass defensed and seven special teams tackles in 23 career games. He made his season debut in Week 3 against Chicago as a covid replacement, playing 16 snaps on defense and 10 snaps on special teams.

According to the new Collective Bargaining Agreement, a team can carry up to 55 players on its roster entering a game — up from 53 in past years — by elevating one or two players from its practice squad before 4 p.m. ET on the day before that team’s game. Any player elevated from the practice squad for this purpose will immediately revert to his team’s practice squad on the day after the game.
