After a much deserved break from Atlanta Falcons football, the team is back this week and preparing to head on the road and face the Miami Dolphins. Week 7 is underway, as the Falcons and Dolphins revealed their first injury reports of the week, giving us insight into who the two team’s may be without this weekend.

On Monday, we received positive news that Calvin Ridley, Russell Gage, Marlon Davidson and Erik Harris were back at practice, which explains why none are listed on the report above. Avery Williams, who has served as the team’s punt and occasional kick returner, was limited on Wednesday after missing the Falcons’ Week 5 matchup in London. Seeing that he’s limited this early in the week, it’s a good sign for his availability on Sunday. J
Jaylinn Hawkins. who has played well recently. was absent on Wednesday with a non-COVID-19 related illness, so hopefully he feels better later in the week. The injury to watch for is Dante Fowler Jr.. who is dealing with a knee injury. We’ll get a better idea for his availability later in the week.
It’s worth noting on the Dolphins’ side of things, that the team only held a walk-through on Wednesday, so the participation above is estimated. With that being said, that’s a lot of players with limited availability and it will be something to definitely watch throughout the week.
