Atlanta Falcons defensive tackle Grady Jarrett will miss the Steeler's game on Sunday with a sprained ankle injury. As an emergency policy, the Falcons signed defensive tackle Michael Bennett to a deal Tuesday.

Jarrett suffered the injury during the game against the Bengals and he could be out multiple weeks depending on how well the rehab goes.

“When we get him back right, we’ll get him back in there when we can,” Dan Quinn said on 92.9 The Game on Wednesday.

Jarrett has registered 16 tackles in 2018.

For his young NFL career, he already has 143 tackles and 8 sacks.

He had 207 tackles, 29.5 tackles for loss, 5.5 sacks, 37 quarterback pressures, one pass break up, two caused fumbles and four recovered fumbles while at Clemson.
