The Atlanta Falcons placed both TE Kyle Pitts and DT Ta'Quon Graham on IR this week after both exited the win over the Chicago Bears with knee injuries.

With seven weeks left in the regular season, injury expert Will Carroll told John and Hugh if there is enough time for either guy to return.

"If he can avoid surgery, he'd be back for Week 18," explains Will Carroll. "More likely they just start on the rehab and get ready for minicamp."

After being placed on IR each player will be out a minimum of four weeks, which would include games against the Commanders and Steelers, the bye week, and a game against the Saints before even being eligible to return.
