Falcons’ Pitts on injured reserve with ailing right knee


By The Associated Press

Falcons tight end Kyle Pitts has a right knee injury that landed him on injured reserve on Monday. Coach Arthur Smith added that it’s too early to know if Pitts, the No. 4 overall draft pick last year and a Pro Bowl pick as a rookie, will need surgery. Pitts was hurt in the third quarter of Sunday’s 27-24 win over the Chicago Bears. He caught an 18-yard pass over the middle and was hit low by Eddie Jackson. He stayed down on the field briefly before walking off the field under his own power.
