Guard Andy Levitre has decided now is the time to officially hang up his cleats.

Levitre, who missed 14 games in 2018 with a torn triceps, announced Tuesday on Instagram that he was retiring after 10 seasons in the NFL.

"Unfortunately, due to injury my body won't allow me to continue any longer," Levitre wrote. "Thank you to my wife and children, my family, friends, coaches, teammates and all of the fans who have supported me on this journey. ... I hope you all have enjoyed my career as much as I have."

Before the past two seasons with the Atlanta Falcons, Levitre was a model of durability, starting 16 games in eight consecutive seasons. He first tore his triceps in 2017, and then suffered the same injury last year.
