A new week is underway, as the Atlanta Falcons turn their attention to a home divisional battle with the Carolina Panthers. The Falcons and Panthers have revealed their first injury reports of the week, giving us insight into who the two team’s may be without this weekend.
You can expect to see the injury reports here every Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, except for when the Falcons play on Thursday night or have a bye week.
- CB Avery Williams (hamstring)
- CB A.J. Terrell (concussion)
- OT Cameron Erving (neck)
- CB CJ Henderson (shoulder)
- LB Shaq Thompson (foot)
- FB Giocanni Ricci (concussion)
- DT Daviyon Nixon (knee)
- WR Terrace Marshall Jr. (concussion)
As has been the case for most of the season, the Falcons thankfully have a small injury report. Rookie corner Avery Williams, who has excelled as the team’s punt returner, hasn’t played since Week 4 against the Washington Football Team due to a hamstring injury. Williams was a full participant in Wednesday’s practice, which means he will most likely play this Sunday, assuming there are no setbacks later in the week.
This past Sunday, A.J. Terrell left the game due to a neck injury, which according to Wednesday’s practice report, is concussion-related. You may recall Terrell left the Buccaneers’ game earlier this season with a concussion, so hopefully it’s only a neck injury. Terrell was limited on Wednesday, which is another good sign for this upcoming Sunday. We’ll continue to monitor both players throughout the week.
On the Panthers side of things, they had some notable players limited such as corner C.J. Henderson and linebacker Shaq Thompson. Their only non-participant in Wednesday’s practice was rookie receiver Terrace Marshall Jr., who is dealing with a concussion.
