Tight end Kyle Pitts will miss the first game of his NFL career on Sunday when the Atlanta Falcons visit the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, multiple media outlets reported.
Pitts, a former first-round pick, has not participated in practice all week while dealing with a hamstring injury.
Pitts has 10 catches for 150 yards in four games this season for the Falcons (2-2), who will turn to Parker Hesse and Anthony Firkser to handle the positional duties.
Pitts has 78 receptions for 1,176 yards and one touchdown in 21 career games since being selected by Atlanta with the fourth overall pick of the 2021 NFL Draft.
