Fudge on IR, Falcons Pick Up Peprah

The Falcons injury situation in the secondary took a turn for the worse Wednesday as the team placed recently re-signed safety Jamaal Fudge on injured reserve.

In his place, Atlanta brought in four-year veteran safety Charlie Peprah.

Fudge, who was with the team in 2008 and the preseason, was re-signed on Oct. 20 after the team placed starting cornerback Brian Williams on injured reserve. The team also lost second-round pick safety William Moore (hamstring) for the season last week.

Thomas DeCoud and Erik Coleman have started every game at safety in 2009 but injury concerns have hit the reserve unit hard with Moore and Antoine Harris, who returned to the lineup last week after missing four games with a knee injury.Wor

Peprah, 5-11, 203 pounds, spent the past three seasons with the Green Bay Packers (2006-08). He was released by the Packers following training camp this season.

In 37 career games (one start), the Alabama graduate has totaled 21 tackles (10 solo) and forced two fumbles on special teams in 2007.

At Alabama, Peprah played in 50 games (45 starts) at multiple positions in the secondary. He finished his career with 210 tackles, nine interceptions, five fumble recoveries, four forced fumbles and 24 passes defensed. He was a first-team All American (The NFL Draft Report) as a senior.

Charlie Peprah can't be worse than Jamal Fudge.

Peprah was a decent reserve the few times I saw him in Green Bay. As I recall, he was a fairly good athlete coming out of school a few years back that had a nice little Combine.

But I don't think we want to see him on the field anytime soon.

I understand you were disappointed with Fudge's play in camp Cyril, but didn't you think he did a pretty good job in the season finale last year subbing for MIlloy? I did. You could hardly tell that we had a new starting SS.

I have a hard time remembering what I thought last week, much less last year (:

I think that game was at home so your right, even though we gave a lousy team 27 points Fudge
played Ok. I wish our safeties made more plays (DeCoud is getting better) but when you don't remember their play at
least they didn't give up the big play......
