Falcons defensive lineman Michael Bennett suffered a broken ankle during Monday’s practice, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com (on Twitter). The 26-year-old is out indefinitely, striking a blow to the Falcons’ depth.
The Falcons signed Bennett in October of last year to fill in for Grady Jarrett after an injury. He appeared in just two games during his short time with the team, but they circled back to him in January with a low-risk deal.
Bennett finished out the 2018 season with five tackles in two games. Prior to that, he appeared in 14 games for the Jaguars across two seasons.
