How different will the Falcons offense look without Kyle Pitts?


The Atlanta Falcons placed TE Kyle Pitts on IR after an MCL injury suffered against Chicago and now will go at-least the next four weeks without him.

92.9 The Game Falcons Reporter Joe Patrick discusses with John and Hugh how the offense might change with Pitts sidelined for a few games.

When you have a guy like Kyle Pitts you're able to play Parker Hesse, 12 personnel, and I wonder without Kyle Pitts if you try to spring a surprise on Washington and spread them out a little bit more," suggests Joe Patrick. "You'd still stick to your bread and butter, running the ball, but out of different personnel packages without Kyle Pitts. I think Arthur Smith will be forced to change things up."

The injury to Kyle Pitts will force him to miss a game for the first time in his career after taking part in all 17 games last season and the first 11 games this season.
