As the Atlanta Falcons prepare for Sunday’s divisional matchup with their rivals the New Orleans Saints, we continue to monitor the practice report. Overall, the team is healthier than it’s been in 2020 following a week 10 bye.
The team released its official practice report for Friday, giving us insight into where certain players stand health-wise heading into Sunday’s game.
- T Kaleb McGary (knee)
- TE Jaeden Graham (knee/toe)
- T Matt Gono (illness)
- WR Calvin Ridley (foot)
- T John Wetzel (ankle)
- WR Olamide Zaccheaus (knee)
- RB Todd Gurley (rest)
- G James Carpenter (rest)
No huge changes to the Falcons practice report on Friday. As I like to say every week, Friday is the most important practice report as it gives us the best idea as to which players we can expect to see (and not see) that weekend. The Falcons have no injury designations for the game, meaning no Falcons’ players were listed as questionable, doubtful or out for Sunday.
The big news here is that Calvin Ridley will suit up. With Ridley in the fold, the Falcons have their offense ready to go against the Saints, and hopefully will be able to overwhelm an injured defense.
The Saints practice report will be released later in the day, but on Thursday several key players, including defensive end Cam Jordan and wide receiver Tre’Quan Smith, were held out of practice.
