Marcus Green: Cut by Eagles

Green was let go by Philadelphia on Sunday.

Analysis: Green signed a reserve/future contract with the Eagles this winter after he was cut by the Falcons in the 2019 preseason. The 2019 sixth-round pick was caught 104 passes for 1,667 yards and 13 touchdowns on 172 targets in his final season at Lousiana-Monroe. He also possesses some return ability which could help him land on a 53-man roster elsewhere.

Marcus Green: Secures future pact

Green signed a reserve/future contract with the Eagles on Monday.

Analysis: Green couldn't make the cut with the Falcons during the preseason, so he'll try his hand for the 2020 campaign in another nest. The 2019 sixth-round pick was productive in college, and he has upside as a returner.

Marcus Green: Muffs punt in loss to Washington

Green brought back his one kick return opportunity for 25 yards, and muffed a punt during Thursday's 19-7 loss to the Redskins.

Analysis: Green has done little to take hold of the starting punt returner job, tallying 16 yards on six attempts with two fumbles (one lost). The fumble against Washington may have been the lost straw on the camel's back, as the proven Kenjon Barner is expected to return soon from an undisclosed injury that has held him out of Atlanta's past two exhibition games.

Marcus Green: Returns from hamstring injury

Green (hamstring) returned two kicks for 39 yards, three punts for 18 yards and failed to catch his lone target in Thursday's preseason game against the Jets.

Analysis: Green missed the preseason opener after suffering the hamstring injury at the start of August, but he's good to go after a brief recovery. The 23-year-old will likely need to make an impact as a returner to have a real chance of making the 53-man roster.

Marcus Green: Participates in practice

Green (hamstring) participated in Monday's practice, D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Analysis: The extent of Green's participation remains undisclosed, but even if he logged a limited practice it's a step in the right direction. The rookie sixth-round pick is recovering from a lingering hamstring issue that's been ailing him since OTAs. Green is competing to earn a role as a depth receiver and return man in Atlanta.

Marcus Green: Injures hamstring

Green will not return to Thursday's preseason opener versus the Broncos after injuring his hamstring, William McFadden of the Falcons' official site reports.

Analysis: This injury is especially concerning, as Green missed a chunk of OTAs due to a hamstring injury. Atlanta's depth at receiver makes him a fringe final roster player right now, but he has the chance to earn a spot if he can win the punt returner job over Kenjon Barner, Shawn Bane and Justin Hardy.

Marcus Green: Returning punts

Green returned punts during June's mandatory minicamp, William McFadden of the Falcons' official site reports.

Analysis: It's good to see Green back on the field after he missed a chunk of OTAs due to a hamstring injury. Given the depth Atlanta has at receiver, the 2019 sixth-rounder will likely need to factor in on special teams in order to make the 53-man roster out of the preseason. Green's competition at punt returner includes Kenjon Barner, Shawn Bane and Justin Hardy.

Marcus Green: Remains sidelined at OTAs

Green (hamstring) is working with the rehab group during the start of OTAs, Kelsey Conway of the Falcons' official site reports.

Analysis: Green is an interesting prospect given his both his impressive athletic profile and his collegiate production at UL Monroe. A hamstring injury, one that prevented him from being a full participant in rookie minicamp earlier this month, has prevented him from going all out during his first few practices with the Falcons. It isn't clear when he could be he'll be fully healthy again, but when that point comes, the sixth-round rookie will be a candidate to climb as high as No. 4 on the depth chart in Atlanta.

Marcus Green: Limited during rookie minicamp

Head coach Dan Quinn said that Green (hamstring) was withheld from full participation during rookie minicamp because of a strained hamstring, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Green will be held out until OTAs as a precautionary measure, but Quinn seemed optimistic Friday that the rookie wideout will be ready to run at full speed in the near future. During his collegiate career at Louisiana-Monroe, Green hinted no signs of physical fragility, suiting up for 48 of a possible 49 games between 2015 and 2018. After setting a pace of nearly 675 receiving yards and six touchdowns per season with the Warhawks, Green will push Justin Hardy for the No. 4 wide receiver slot if capable of piecing together an impressive training camp.
