Who's practicing vs. who's not ahead of the Falcons-Packers primetime matchup

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. -- Falcons running back Brian Hill returned to practice on Wednesday as the team began preparation for their prime-time matchup against the Green Bay Packers on “Sunday Night Football.” Hill missed Atlanta’s final preseason game and regular-season opener with an ankle injury.

Not only did the Falcons (1-0) leave Chicago with a win, no major injuries to key players occurred. A successful trip on all ends, you could say.

Center Alex Mack (back), safety Kemal Ishmael (hamstring), linebacker Duke Riley (knee), tight end Eric Saubert (hamstring) and Hill (ankle) were all limited in practice on Wednesday. View the full injury report here.
