FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. -- The Falcons appear to be a little banged up as they begin preparation for this weekend's game against the Arizona Cardinals.
Four players were non participants on Wednesday as tight end Austin Hooper, defensive tackle Grady Jarrett, wide receiver Julio Jones and defensive tackle Terrell McClain were all held out due to injury.
Jones sat out practice on Wednesday and Thursday of last week before ultimately suiting up on Sunday, so it would not be surprising if the Falcons went about it the same way this week. Hooper injured his knee in the team's loss to the Packers, and it seems his status is in greater doubt.
Here is the Falcons' full injury report from Wednesday.
The Cardinals also had a few key players miss practice. Safety Buddha Baker, wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald and running back David Johnson were all held out of Wednesday's practice.
