You couldn't ask for a better time to get healthy.
All three guys who didn't practice Thursday—John Abraham, Curtis Lofton and Roddy White—have been resting on the first day of practice for many moons now. There's absolutely no reason to expect this fearsome trio not to suit up, which is great news for Falcons fans and bad news for the Saints.
So there's a little early Christmas present for you. Enjoy it.
