Atlanta Falcons tight end Kyle Pitts won't play in Sunday's matchup against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers due to a hamstring injury, the team announced.

Pitts has been held out of practice all week due to the hamstring ailment.

The former fourth overall pick has gotten off to a pedestrian start in 2022. Pitts has recorded 10 catches for 150 yards with zero touchdowns through four games. He has tallied 25 yards or less in three of the four contests.

The 22-year-old earned a Pro Bowl berth during his rookie campaign last season after hauling in 68 catches for 1,026 yards.

The Falcons - who began the season 0-2 - go into their Week 5 game against the Bucs on a two-game winning streak.
