Falcons vs. Saints 2014: Wednesday Injury Report Is Thankfully Light

New, comments

Only two names, and they both practiced fully.

The Falcons are as healthy going into 2014 as they've been in a while, if you don't count the two guys on injured reserve and the two on PUP. Shut up.

Per the injury report, Corey Peters (Achilles) and Dezmen Southward (Concussion) are the only two guys the Falcons are concerned with. Peters will likely get all the snaps his legs can handle on this defensive line, while Southward is a pure backup this season assuming good health from Dwight Lowery.

The good news is that Steven Jackson appears healthy and the team is as close to 100% with its current roster as it's likely to be all season. Given that they're playing the Saints this week, that's truly excellent.

Speaking of the Saints, S Marcus Bell and FB Erik Lorig didn't practice, while WR Kenny Stills was limited. Stills is the guy nobody wants to see, given his ability as a deep threat.
