When the Falcons hit the practice field today, they did so with Julio Jones and Dwight Freeney fully participating. Robenson Therezie, who is listed on the injury report with a thumb injury, fully participated Wednesday and Thursday.
Julio has been battling an ankle injury and Freeney's lack of participation Wednesday was identified as non-injury related.
Adrian Clayborn (shoulder), Terron Ward (ankle) and Kemal Ishmael (shoulder) were all listed as limited on Wednesday. Their status tomorrow should indicate their readiness for the game, and Quinn is typically forthcoming about his expectations for any injured player's status for Sundays.
Keanu Neal obviously remains out of practice as he recovers from knee surgery. He should miss just a few weeks.
One concerning addition to the injury report today was Jonathan Babineaux. Babs was not on the injury report Wednesday, but he was held out of Thursday's practice for non-injury related reasons. Perhaps it's just a rest day. This was Freeney's status, and Freeney was certainly back at full strength today.
The other addition to the injury report on Thursday, and it's certainly something to keep an eye on, is safety Dashon Goldson, who was limited with a hamstring injury. Depth at safety is a bit sketchy and if Goldson is unable to play, that's a bit of a concern.
Back to some good news. Quinn and Kyle Shanahan both said Julio looks ready to go.
