Justin Forsett Added to the 53

by: Michael Steffes

According to Danny O'Neil, the Hawks have signed Justin Forsett to the 53 man roster. This move comes at the expense of Michael Bumpus.

Forsett is expected to try his hand at return duties again, and Bumpus will hopefully make it back to the practice squad.

This move is likely because, with the running back injuries around the NFL, Forsett was getting some interest from teams--more specifically, the Colts, now that Addai is hurt--who could give him some playing time. Clearly, the Hawks were excited to get Forsett back, and with the WR situation a little more stable, were willing to make the move to keep him. Now we can see if they give him any carries. Nothing to lose at this point, right?

FUN FACT: Today is Justin's 23rd Birthday. Happy B-Day, Young Nastyman, welcome back to the NFL!
