Saints rally to an OT shootout win over Falcons

The New Orleans Saints' Cameron Meredith (81) is tackled by the Atlanta Falcons' Ricardo Allen (37) and Foye Oluokun (54) during a game at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta.

The Atlanta Falcons announced a series of roster moves Sunday, including the designation of linebacker to Foye Oluokun the team’s reserve/COVID-19 list.

The team also released punter Ryan Allen. In addition to those moves, it waived tight end Caleb Repp, center Austin Capps, tackle Scottie Dill and linebacker Jordan Williams. 

Regarding Oluokon, NFL teams are not permitted to comment on a player's medical status other than referring to roster status. Clubs may not disclose whether the player is in quarantine or is positive for COVID-19.

Oluokun played in all 16 games last season, including two starts, totaling career-high 56 tackles, two tackles for loss, six special teams tackles and one forced fumble.
