After logging three consecutive limited practices, wide receiver Calvin Ridley was not listed with any particular injury designation for Sunday's game against the Saints, a sign that he will be back in the lineup after missing one game due to a foot injury.

There were no players with an injury designation for Sunday, meaning the Falcons should be close to full strength for an important game. Defensive end Dante Fowler is still on the team's reserve/COVID-19 list, and his absence will be notable for Atlanta, but he could be the only starter out against New Orleans.

Here is the Falcons' injury report from Friday:

What it means

The Falcons' injury report obviously carries good news, but the Saints' injury report from Thursday is equally notable. Star running back Alvin Kamara did not practice on Thursday while nursing a foot injury, and Marshon Lattimore, Cameron Jordan and Ryan Ramczyk all remained limited. The final injury report for New Orleans will be incredibly telling for just what the Falcons could be up against on Sunday.
