The Falcons, concerned about their depth along the interior of the offensive line, signed guard Jamil Douglas from the practice squad Friday.

To make room for Douglas, the Falcons released cornerback Deji Olatoye.

Center Alex Mack (calf) is questionable for Sunday’s game against the Carolina Panthers at 4:25 p.m. at Mercedes-Benz Stadium. Left guard Andy Levitre (triceps) did not play last week against the Saints.  

The Falcons can advance to the playoffs with a victory, or if they lose and Seattle loses to Arizona, or if their game and Seattle’s game end in ties. 

Douglas was drafted by the Dolphins in the fourth round (114th overall) of the 2015 draft. Douglas spent all of 2015 and part of 2016 with the Dolphins, playing in 17 games with six starts before being placed on the team’s practice squad.
