Falcons place Peters on reserve list, waive Wilson
The Atlanta Falcons placed starting defensive tackle Corey
Peters on the reserve injured list and waived third string
quarterback John Parker Wilson on Sunday.
Peters missed all of training camp and preseason with a left
foot injury. The earliest Peters can return is Oct. 28 at
Philadelphia. He must sit out the first six games.
Wilson spent the past two seasons on the depth chart behind Matt
Ryan and Chris Redman. Wilson, who lost his job to undrafted rookie
Dominique Davis, never took a snap in a regular-season game.
Peters, a third-round pick from Kentucky in 2010, started 30 of
his 31 games over the past two years. Peria Jerry is starting at
nose tackle to replace Peters, who has 73 tackles, four sacks, one
interception, one fumble recovery and three passes defensed in his
NFL teams have to reach the 75-man roster limit by Monday.
