FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) -The Atlanta Falcons reduced their roster to 75 players by moving offensive tackle Renardo Foster and defensive tackle Trey Lewis off their active list on Tuesday.
Foster was moved to the physically-unable-to-perform list. Lewis was placed on the non-football injury list.
Lewis, a fifth-round pick in 2007, started five of nine games as a rookie last season before suffering a season-ending knee injury. He then hurt the knee again before training camp.
Foster, signed as an undrafted rookie free agent last season, played in seven games, including two starts at left tackle, before suffering a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee in October.
NFL teams had to reach the 75-man roster limit on Tuesday. The Falcons only had to make two moves after releasing receiver Joe Horn and linebacker Isaac Brown last week.
The Falcons, who play their final preseason game at Baltimore on Thursday, have to cut their roster to 53 by Saturday.
