Falcons K Bryant, CB Alford out at Redskins

Updated: 03-11-2018 00:32 IST

Starting cornerback Robert Alford and kicker Matt Bryant are out for Sunday's game when the Atlanta Falcons visit the Washington Redskins.

Atlanta coach Dan Quinn announced the news Friday and said rookie Isaiah Oliver would replace Alford in the starting lineup.

Bryant also missed last week's game with a hamstring injury. But his replacement, Giorgio Tavecchio, made a 56-yard field goal and was named NFC Special Teams Player of the Week in the Week 7 win that was followed by a bye week.

The Falcons have six starters on injured reserve.
