Atlanta Falcons DE McKinley undergoes mental evaluation

By The Associated Press

ATLANTA (AP) — Atlanta Falcons defensive end Takk McKinley was undergoing a mental evaluation after police were called to a hotel in Los Angeles.

TMZ Sports reported that a friend became concerned for McKinley's well-being and summoned police. The Falcons acknowledged the incident in a statement from coach Dan Quinn, who says the team will do "everything we possibly can to support and assist Takk."

No criminal charges were filed. TMZ Sports says McKinley was cooperative when detained by officers.

McKinley played collegiately at UCLA. He was a first-round pick by the Falcons in 2017, making headlines on draft night with an emotional tribute to the late grandmother who raised him.

This past season, McKinley played in 15 games with eight starts. He led the Falcons with seven sacks and ranked second with 15 hits on the quarterback.
