The Falcons health report for Thursday, Sept. 9

Only a few more days until the Atlanta Falcons host the Philadelphia Eagles, and we continue to monitor the daily practice report. On Wednesday, linebacker Brandon Copeland was the only player listed, as he was limited during practice with a hamstring injury. On Thursday, we received the latest update, which includes an extra player.

You can expect to see the practice reports here every Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, except for when the Falcons play on Thursday night or have a Bye Week.

Thursday’s official practice report:


  • N/A


  • LB Brandon Copeland (hamstring)


  • DT Grady Jarrett (non-injury related)

As you can see, not a lot of change between Wednesday and Thursday’s practice report. Copeland continues to practice on a limited-basis which is good news considering it’s a hamstring injury. If it was something to be concerned about, I can’t imagine he would even be out there. Although seeing Jarrett pop up on the practice report at first is alarming, it’s for a personal matter and shouldn’t impact his availability for Sunday against the Eagles. Additionally, tight end Parker Hesse has been activated off the team’s reserve/COVD-19 list.

Looking at the Eagles injury report, offensive guard Brandon Brooks, offensive lineman Landon Dickerson, safety Rodney McLeod and linebacker Davion Taylor continued to be limited in practice on Thursday.

We will continue to monitor the practice report heading into Friday.
