The Rams released Mughelli on Friday.|||||||
Mughelli made the Pro Bowl in 2010 for Atlanta but was released in May to clear salary cap space and was coming off a knee injury in Week 7 last year. He signed a one-year contract with St. Louis last month.
The Atlanta Falcons released Mughelli in a move that also frees salary cap space.|||||||
Mughelli, 31, was due to earn a base salary of $3 million in 2012. His 2011 season ended when he hurt his right knee in Week 7 at Detroit and was placed on injured reserve. Mughelli's 32nd birthday is June 10, nine days before the team's first minicamp for veterans.
The Falcons say they are placing Mughelli on injured reserve, ending his season.|||||||
Mughelli hurt his right knee in the fourth quarter of Sunday's 23-16 win at Detroit. He suffered the injury when hit by Lions defensive back Louis Delmas.
Mughelli scored the game's first TD in a 55-41 victory over the turnover-prone AFC in the Pro Bowl.|||||||
Mughelli scored on a one-yard run and had another carry for two yards. His real value, of course, comes as a blocker, and that's the reason he was signed to a six-year, $18 million contract, even though it's one that fantasy owners don't understand because of his non-existential fantasy value.
The Atlanta Falcons are without Mughelli against Dallas on Sunday.|||||||
Mughelli missed his second consecutive game with a calf injury
