Buccaneers TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins (shoulder, questionable) took limited practice reps all week and is questionable for Week 13. It appears that Seferian-Jenkins will finally make his return in Week 13. It’s a tasty matchup against the Falcons (#30 in TE aFPA), but we’re always leery about starting players coming off of long absences. He’s been practicing for a while, so his timing and conditioning should be fine.

Falcons K Matt Bryant (right quadricep, out) missed practice all week and is out for Week 13. Shayne Graham will continue to fill-in for Bryant.

The Atlanta Falcons activated wide receiver/return specialist Devin Hester from injured reserve Friday and placed wide receiver Leonard Hankerson on season-ending IR.

The move with Hester was expected, as he is set to make his season debut against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday. He missed the first 11 games after tearing two ligaments in his right big toe during the preseason.

As for Hankerson, he had been battling a hamstring strain for a while and aggravated it two games ago against the Indianapolis Colts. He had missed three games because of the injury.

Fantasy Impact:

Hankerson’s absence directly impacts the number of targets that TE Jacob Tamme will see. Tamme has averaged 6.0-67-0.25 on 8.5 T/G in the four games that Hankerson has missed. He’s averaging just 3.3-41 on 4.7 T/G in the six games in which Hankerson has played. Tamme becomes a low-end TE1 for rest-of-season purposes.
