Falcons RB Cordarrelle Patterson (ankle) could miss a couple of weeks
Nov 15, 2021
Cordarrelle Patterson has a sprained ankle, and while the Falcons still are evaluating it, Tom Pelissero of NFL Media reports the nine-year veteran could miss “a couple weeks.”

Patterson played only 15 offensive snaps and five special teams snaps Sunday against the Cowboys. Patterson, 30, has been one of the Falcons’ top weapons with 116 touches for 776 yards and seven touchdowns this season. With Patterson missing time, any of Davis, Gallman or Ollison could eat up those touches. It may take some time to figure out the Falcons backfield with Patterson out of the lineup.
