UPDATE: And Roddy White had a limited practice due to a knee issue. Great.
The earliest version of the injury report is out, and it has a couple of notable names on it.
No DeCoud or Gonzalez during opening period. Antone Smith (knee) no helmet.— vaughn mcclure (@vxmcclure23) December 11, 2013
Thomas DeCoud (concussion) and Antone Smith (knee) did not participate in practice Wednesday for the Falcons. #WASvsATL— Jay Adams (@FalconsJAdams) December 11, 2013
Thomas DeCoud is probably out this week. There's no reason the Falcons need to rush him back and concussions can be tricky, so a start for Zeke Motta could be in the offing.
Gonzalez is practicing on a limited basis. I fully expect him to suit up, draw double teams and pave the way for a fine day from Roddy White and Harry Douglas. This is his lot, these days.

Finally, Antone Smith was out there without a helmet. The severity of his knee injury will determine whether he plays this weekend. For now, I'm penciling him in.
Also, in slightly related news, if you didn't catch Mike Shanahan's presser it'll help you understand why Robert Griffin III was benched and also how crazy it is in D.C. right now.
