Atlanta Falcons head coach Mike Smith announced the unfortunate news himself during his Monday press conference.

Svitek was originally drafted by the Kansas City Chiefs in the 2005 NFL Draft. Svitek was waived by the Chiefs prior to the 2008 season, and then signed with the Falcons on February 12, 2009, and has spent each of the past three seasons with the Falcons.
