Truett’s Chick-fil-A Sports. Culberson designated for assignment in latest Braves’ shuffle. Falcons set practice squad with season-opener this Sunday. Georgia Tech at FSU on ABC Saturday afternoon.

Truett’s Chick-fil-A Sports

Truett’s Chick-fli-A, 264 Shorter Ave., 6 a.m.-10 p.m. Drive-through and Door Dash.
Mount Berry Mall, 11 a.m.-8:30 p.m. (curbside, carryout, Door Dash). Shipping Container, 6 a.m.-10 p.m. All Monday-Saturday.

Culberson designated for assignment in latest Braves’ shuffle: From Atlanta: Concerns about the Braves’ rotation grew on Tuesday morning, when left-hander Max Fried was placed on the 10-day injured list with a left-side muscle spasm in his lumbar spine.
Along with placing Fried on the IL, the Braves recalled right-hander Kyle Wright, who was already scheduled to start Tuesday night’s game against the Marlins.
Infielder Charlie Culberson was designated for assignment and right-handed reliever Jacob Webb was activated from the 45-day injured list.
Fried’s four-seam fastball averaged 90.9 mph as he allowed a season-high three runs over five innings in a 10-4 loss against the Nationals on Saturday. The lefty’s fastball had averaged 93.9 mph while he was posting a 1.60 ERA over his eight previous starts. Fried is 6-0 with a 1.98 ERA in nine starts this season.
Culberson tallied just seven plate appearances this year, but was used to aid a taxed bullpen when he was asked to record the final out of Friday’s 10-9 loss to the Nationals in the second game of a doubleheader.
Look for him to join the team’s Gwinnett practice squad.

  • The Atlanta Falcons announced Tuesday afternoon that they have signed veteran linebacker Deone Bucannon to their practice squad. Bucannon becomes the 16th and final member of the Falcons’ practice squad after initially being released by the organization earlier on Tuesday to make room for Steven Means to be activated off of the reserve/COVID-19 list.

He spent all of training camp with Atlanta and was included on the team’s original 53-man roster as one of five linebackers. The former first-round pick enjoyed the best season of his career in 2015 as a member of the Arizona Cardinals when he recorded 112 tackles, 11 tackles for a loss, three sacks, three forced fumbles and an interception.

    Here is the full 16-man practice squad for the Falcons ahead of the 2020 season:

    • CB Delrick Abrams Jr.
