Pitts sustained a hamstring injury during Sunday's 29-15 loss at Buffalo, D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
EDGE Analysis
Pitts sustained the injury midway through the contest but attempted to stay on the field at the start of the second half. He was unable to do so, but before departing the tight end's 69 yards helped him become the Falcon with the most receiving yards for a rookie in franchise history (he has 1,018 in 16 games). Afterward, coach Arthur Smith wouldn't comment on Pitts' health, merely telling Tori McElhaney of the Falcons' official site that the team realized he was unable to continue. Pitts' status thus bears watching as the week goes on to get a sense of his potential to play Week 18 against the Saints.
