Leonard Hankerson Injury: the WR has "work to do" before he'll be physically ready

Devonta Freeman and Brooks Reed were both upgraded to full practice on Thursday.

When Dan Quinn spoke to the media Thursday afternoon about Leonard Hankerson's lingering hamstring injury, he sounded doubtful that Hankerson would be ready to play on Sunday.

"Until he's ready and he's able to just haul and go, he's still going to be going through part of the process and going through the rehab to get back," Quinn said of Hankerson.

Matt Bryant (quad) and Chris Chester (shoulder) both did not participate at all in Thursday's practice. Bryant typically does not kick on Thursdays, per Quinn, so it's possible we'll see Bryant upgraded tomorrow. Quinn said that he isn't concerned about Chester's injury, but they're assessing his progress day to day.

Justin Durant (ankle) and Paul Soliai (calf) both remained limited in practice on Thursday. Tony Moeaki was added to the injury report on Thursday and is listed as limited with a hamstring injury.

Devonta Freeman, who missed last week's game with a concussion, was upgraded from limited practice on Wednesday to full practice on Thursday. Barring any setbacks, Freeman will be ready to go on Sunday. Brooks Reed, who was limited on Wednesday with a knee injury, was also upgraded to full participation on Thursday.

Nate Stupar, who suffered a neck injury against the Vikings but was cleared to return to action during that game, practiced fully on both Wednesday and Thursday.

How do you think these injuries might impact Atlanta against the Bucs on Sunday?
