Jacquizz Rodgers’ brother returns to Falcons’ practice squad


Falcons running back Jacquizz Rodgers will once again have his brother as a teammate this season. At least at practice.

The Falcons have named their eight-member practice squad, and one of the members is James Rodgers, the big brother of Jacquizz Rodgers. James Rodgers was also on the Falcons’ practice squad last year, and the brothers were teammates at Oregon State as well.

Also on the practice squad is quarterback Seth Doege. Like several other teams, the Falcons decided to keep only two quarterbacks (Matt Ryan and Dominique Davis) on the 53-man roster, and to keep a third on the practice squad.

Atlanta also signed fullback Patrick DiMarco, receiver Darius Johnson, cornerback Jordan Mabin, guard Phillipkeith Manley, defensive tackle Adam Replogle and tight end Mickey Shuler to the practice squad.
