As the weekend draws closer, we’re continuing to monitor the practice reports of both the Atlanta Falcons, and their divisional opponent this week, the Carolina Panthers. While the Panthers had a fairly large injury report on Wednesday, the Falcons’ injury report was thankfully pretty short.
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)
- FB Giocanni Ricci (concussion)
- OT Trent Scott (finger)
- CB CJ Henderson (shoulder)
- LB Shaq Thompson (foot)
- C Matt Paradis (back)
- WR Terrace Marshall Jr. (concussion)
- DT Daviyon Nixon (knee)
- DE Darryl Johnson (hamstring)
There was some great news for the Falcons on Thursday’s practice report, as the team had corner A.J. Terrell upgraded to a full participant, after being limited on Wednesday. This is phenomenal news, as Terrell is listed with a concussion but the fact that he’s practicing in full already likely means he will be a go on Sunday against Carolina. Additionally, returner Avery Williams practiced in full for back-to-back days, so there’s no concerns for his availability on Sunday.
The Panthers injury report increased on Thursday, as defensive end Darryl Johnson (non-participant) and center Matt Paradis (limited) were added. A downgrade for the team was defensive tackle Daviyon Nixon who was held out of practice after being limited on Wednesday.
We’ll continue to monitor both team’s injury reports heading into Friday.
