Atlanta Falcons running back Tevin Coleman will miss the team's 2015 home finale against the New Orleans Saints with a concussion he suffered last week. The team was hopeful Coleman would progress through the protocol and be cleared for Sunday, but Dan Quinn told the media following Friday's practice that Coleman had been ruled out for Sunday's game.

Matt Ryan was listed on the injury report all week with a hip injury, but he practiced fully all week, including Friday. Ryan is probable for Sunday.

Cornerback Robert Alford (ankle), return specialist Devin Hester (toe), wide receiver Roddy White (ankle) and middle linebacker Paul Worrilow (knee) all practiced fully on Friday and are listed as probable for Sunday's game. Eric Weems, who suffered a concussion in the Week 16 victory over the Panthers, was upgraded from limited practice status on Thursday to a full practice on Friday. It's an impressively quick turnaround for Weems, who is probable for Sunday's game.

Phillip Adams (hamstring), right guard Chris Chester (shoulder), linebacker Justin Durant (hip) and running back Devonta Freeman (knee) remained limited in Friday's practice, but all are probable for Sunday's game.

Defensive tackle Grady Jarrett, who missed last week's game with a shoulder injury, was limited in practice on Friday and is listed as probable for Sunday's game.

Dan Quinn said after practice that Gino Gradkowski had taken the majority of first team snaps at center during the week. It sounds like Gradkowski has a very real possibility of getting the start on Sunday.
