Four players were unable to practice on Wednesday as the Falcons got back to work

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. – The Falcons were without four players at practice on Wednesday: Mohamed Sanu (hamstring), Matt Bryant (back), Courtney Upshaw (ankle/knee) and Justin Hardy (illness).

Ryan Schraeder and Ricardo Allen returned to the field after spending time in the league’s concussion protocol.

After missing two games, Vic Beasley was able to practice in in a limited capacity. Julio Jones was also limited with a hip flexor injury.

Head coach Dan Quinn said they’ll “take it through the week” with Beasley to see where he’s at in terms of his ability to “explode and really haul.”

With Bryant dealing with a back injury, Atlanta signed Mike Meyer to the practice squad. Meyer proved to be a viable backup for the Falcons when he was with the team during the preseason, as he connected on 3-of-4 field goal attempts.

The Falcons (3-1) take on the Dolphins (2-2) at 1 p.m. on Sunday at Mercedes-Benz Stadium.
