Falcons fans should breathe a sigh of relief. After much speculation about the nature and severity of the injury quarterback Matt Ryan suffered during Sunday's win over the Carolina Panthers, we now know it's a hip injury, and it's not severe enough to keep Ryan out of practice. Ryan is officially listed as a full participant on the team's Wednesday injury report. Ryan said after practice that he feels fine.

Running back Devonta Freeman (knee) and return specialist Devin Hester (toe) were both limited on Wednesday, as were linebacker Justin Durant (hip), cornerback Robert Alford (ankle) and linebacker Paul Worrilow (knee). Defensive tackle Grady Jarrett, who missed Sunday's game with a shoulder injury, returned to practice Wednesday in a limited capacity.

Several Falcons were held out of Wednesday's practice. Wide receivers Roddy White (ankle) and Eric Weems (concussion), right guard Chris Chester (shoulder) and running back Tevin Coleman (concussion) were all unable to practice. Dan Quinn said prior to practice that Weems and Coleman and progressing through the protocol well and the team is hopeful to have them available for Sunday's game. On defense, cornerback Phillip Adams (hamstring) was unable to practice.
