Jonathan Babineaux, Antone Smith Return To Practice For Week 10

Good news for two of the Falcons' biggest 2014 contributors.

The Falcons haven't had a ton of good injury luck this season, but it's likely they'll welcome back two valued contributors against the Buccaneers.

Babineaux has, as usual, been one of the more quietly effective players on the defensive line. Antone Smith has been one of the team's best weapons, period. Getting Babineaux back after a week off and having Smith avoid major injury represents a big bonus for a reeling Falcons team. The only note of caution here is that Babineaux is starting off limited, but I fully anticipate both will suit up against the Buccaneers.

In other injury news, Drew Davis was practicing off to the side Monday and a decision on his return should be made shortly. Vaughn McClure also tweeted this encouraging news about Marquis Spruill, a guy I thought would be an impactful reserve and special teamer before his ACL injury robbed him of his rookie season:

And no, still no Geraldo Boldewijn news.
