FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) - The Atlanta Falcons have re-signed rookie running back Brian Hill to their practice squad. Atlanta also signed defensive lineman Joey Ivie and quarterback Garrett Grayson to the practice squad. Grayson, a third-round draft pick by New Orleans in 2015, was unable to establish himself as Drew Brees' primary backup and was waived by the Saints on Sept. 2.

ATHENS, Ga. (AP) - Two key starters, defensive tackle Trenton Thompson and wide receiver Terry Godwin, have returned to practice for Georgia in its bye week. Thompson has missed two games with a right knee injury. Godwin left last Saturday's 53-28 win over Missouri with injured ribs.

ATLANTA (AP) - Georgia Tech has trailed for all of four seconds in the second half, yet somehow has two losses. In a season that could be so much better, coach Paul Johnson wants his players to be ticked off at their inability to close out games, as long as they don't let the pain linger into Saturday's game against Wake Forest.
