The Falcons' injury report on Thursday showed good news for center Alex Mack, who was able to practice in a limited capacity, but bad news for nickel corner Damontae Kazee, who sat out practice due to an illness.
Mack was held out of Wednesday's practice due to an elbow injury, so his upgraded status is certainly a positive sign ahead of Sunday's game against the Texans. Kazee was not listed on Wednesday's report, so it will be worth monitoring to see how he rebounds from the illness on Friday. Cornerback Blidi Wreh-Wilson, running back Kenjon Barner and offensive lineman Jamon Brown were all held of of practice for the second day in a row.
Here are the full injury reports for the Falcons and Texans.
