Thankfully, they look to be getting healthier, at least incrementally. On Thursday, Steven Jackson was the only Falcon who didn't practice, and that's because we already know he's not going to play. Sam Baker returned to a limited practice, as did Roddy White. While this team is banged up—approximately 3/5ths of the offensive line are suffering from knee maladies—I'm optimistic the team will be as close to full strength as they're going to get against New England.
Coach Mike Smith said WR Roddy White (ankle) and T Sam Baker (foot/knee) both practiced on a limited basis Thursday.— vaughn mcclure (@vxmcclure23) September 26, 2013
RB Steven Jackson (hamstring) only Falcon sidelined for practice. He won't play Sunday.— vaughn mcclure (@vxmcclure23) September 26, 2013
The Patriots, on the other hand, still are bringing along Rob Gronkowski slowly. Danny Amendola is probably out.
#Patriots injury report shows that Gronk still is not at full participation in practice. O-lineman Vollmer still out.— John Manasso (@jmanasso) September 26, 2013
