McKinley limited to 13 snaps vs. Bucs with shoulder injury

Jacob Tuioti-Mariner received more playing time in McKinley’s absence, finishing with three tackles in his 32 snaps at defensive end. Austin Larkin, who was signed on Saturday to provide depth at defensive end, played 11 snaps on special teams.

McKinley had shoulder issues when he was drafted and has had at least two shoulder surgeries during his tenure with the Falcons.
