An Atlanta Falcons Thursday Injury Report For Week 17

New, comments

We interrupt this slow news days with some actual news. To the injury report!

Three players did not practice on Thursday, one day after the traditional veteran Wednesday of rest. The biggest name on the list is Ray Edwards, who is battling a knee injury—uh oh—and hasn't practiced each of the last two games. If he can't go, the Falcons will rotate Kroy Biermann and Lawrence Sidbury opposite John Abraham. Given the game at hand this Sunday, I'd be okay with the team resting Edwards for the playoffs.

Stephen Nicholas is not practicing and will miss another game. As we noted earlier, Spencer Adkins is starting in his place with Mike Peterson going on injured reserve.

Kerry Meier also isn't practicing, but he's essentially a non-factor in the offense thanks to Mike Mularkey's inability to see beyond third on the depth chart at wide receiver. Kevin Cone will probably take his place on special teams.

Also, Michael Turner is again limited by his groin injury. With the playoffs looming, this is fast becoming a real concern.

So that's the quick take. We'll check back in tomorrow.
