Atlanta Falcons RB Kenjon Barner (concussion, knee) was unable to practice all week but does not appear on the injury report for Week 4 versus the Tennessee Titans. DE Takkarist McKinley (knee), WR Calvin Ridley (hip), RB Ito Smith (concussion) and DT Grady Jarrett (toe) participated fully in practice Friday, Sept. 27, and were removed from the injury report. OG Jamon Brown (hand), P Matt Bosher (groin), LB De'Vondre Campbell (ribs) and OT Kaleb McGary (knee) were not assigned a practice designation Friday and also no longer appear on the injury report.

Footballguys view: Smith is likely to return this week, but the team could make Brian Hill active if they are worried about their running back depth. Seeing Ridley removed from the injury report is heartening after an injury slowed him down last year and took away his high weekly ceiling.

Free-agent RB Kenjon Barner (Panthers) agreed to terms on a one-year contract with the Atlanta Falcons Thursday, March 14. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: With Tevin Coleman (49ers) moving on in free agency, the Falcons needed to add some depth to the position. We should see Devonta Freeman as the top back with Ito Smith as his primary backup. Barner will work on special teams and compete with Brian Hill and Jeremy Langford for a spot on the depth chart behind Freeman and Smith.

Carolina Panthers RB Kenjon Barner (knee) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Friday, Dec. 28. The team also signed practice squad OG Dorian Johnson to the 53-man roster. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: The Panthers are looking at a backfield featuring Cameron Artis-Payne and Travaris Cadet in Week 17. Barner was picked up off waivers from the Patriots back in mid-November. He'll be hard pressed to find steady work next year coming off this knee injury. Barner is an unrestricted free agent in 2019.
