Sam Baker, Lawyer Milloy Practice Thursday

Well, this is encouraging news.

The Falcons really need Sam Baker back to block for Matt Ryan. As we've become acutely aware in this young season, this line just isn't the same without the rook covering Ryan's blind side. As much as I'd like to say the Falcons aren't counting on Lawyer Milloy, they clearly could use him and he'll likely be probable for the Packers game.

Now to the bad news. Laurent Robinson still hasn't practiced, and I'd put him as no better than doubtful for the game. In case you were unaware, the Falcons are going against a fairly weak run defense, but it would be nice if Ryan had all his targets up and running in case something goes horribly awry. Might be a good game for Harry Douglas to waste the Packers' third-string strong safety, though.
