The Atlanta Falcons are signing punter and kickoff specialist Kasey Redfern, who will join the practice squad on Friday, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Redfern will take the pace of Matt Wile, who struggled during the game against the Houston Texans, with a number of kickoffs landing out of bounds.

The Falcons are currently 1-4 on the season.

Atlanta Falcons’ tight end Austin Hooper will miss around one month of action due to a knee injury, according to NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport.

Losing Hooper will be a big blow for the Falcons, as Hooper leads all NFL tight ends in receptions, and hauled in 4 receptions for 17 yards and a touchdown before being forced out of Sunday’s game against the New Orleans Saints.

Hooper has 56 catches for 608 yards and six scores this season for the Falcons.

Despite a disappointing start to their 2019 season, the Atlanta Falcons are not considering firing head coach Dan Quinn, according to ESPN’s Vaughn McClure.

“No. … This staff has performed before. My hope is they can fix what needs to be fixed and start winning some games,” Blank said, per the report.

The Falcons dropped to 1-4 following their loss at the hands of the Houston Texans on Sunday, and look like a shell of the team that went to the Super Bowl only a few years ago.

The Falcons have seen a complete drop from their defense, and their offense has fallen off considerable since Kyle Shanahan left to become the head coach of the San Francisco 49ers.
