FLOWERY BRANCH – The Falcons promoted safety Rafael Bush from the practice squad to the roster on Wednesday.
A roster spot became available when safety Shann Schillinger, who was playing on special teams, was placed on injured reserved with a fractured ankle.
The Falcons also added wide receiver Brandyn Harvey to the practice squad.
Bush, 5-11, 195 pounds, was signed as an undrafted free agent out of South Carolina State by the Falcons after the 2010 NFL Draft.
Bush was waived as part of the NFL’s mandatory roster cut down on September 4 and signed to the practice squad on September 5.
Bush was voted the S.C. State’s most valuable player as a senior after finishing the season with 54 tackles and three touchdowns.
Harvey was signed as an undrafted free agent out of Villanova by the Falcons after the 2010 NFL Draft. He was waived prior to the start of the season.
Harvey recorded 131 catches for 1,835 yards and 11 touchdowns in his colligate career.
