The team placed rookie WR Kerry Meier (knee) on injured reserve late Friday, ending the fifth-round pick's first season.
Meier suffered the injury in Thursday's 28-10 preseason loss to the Patriots. No details were immediately available.
The 6-3 Meier was expected to provide depth and compete for a job as the No. 3 receiver.

Details of Meier's injury still have not been released. The Falcons would seem to be in the market for depth at the position, but Smith indicated that the team will go forward with Brian Finneran and Harry Douglas until Michael Jenkins returns from a shoulder injury in September.
