FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) — In a move which reflects concerns about injuries on the offensive line for Sunday's game against Carolina, the Atlanta Falcons have signed guard Jamil Douglas from their practice squad.

Center Alex Mack (calf) missed practice Thursday and Friday. Left guard Andy Levitre (triceps) and right guard Wes Schweitzer (groin) were limited both days.

Douglas started in six of 16 games played with Miami in 2015 and played in one game for the Dolphins in 2016.

The Falcons waived cornerback Deji Olatoye.

Tight end Levine Toilolo (knee) also missed practice again on Friday. Wide receiver Julio Jones (ankle, thumb) was limited but is expected to play.
