Falcons injury report: Julio Jones limited for second day

The Falcons' injury report from Thursday's practice is long and filled with key players


The Atlanta Falcons are getting a bit healthier ahead of Monday night's game against the Green Bay Packers, but there are still quite a few players banged up.


After having seven starters miss Thursday's practice, the Falcons were still missing five starters on Friday with one day of practice still remaining. Those who did progress were wide receiver Russell Gage, defensive end Jacob Tuioti-Mariner, who were full participants in practice after being limited on Thursday. Wide receiver Calvin Ridley, defensive tackle Grady Jarrett and defensive end Dante Fowler were able to practice in a limited fashion for the first time this week. One troubling development for Atlanta involved rookie defensive tackle Marlon Davidson, who missed Friday's practice due to a knee injury after practicing fully on Thursday.

Here is the full injury report for the Falcons from Friday:

What it means

With one practice to go, the Falcons still have a very large number of starters missing all or some of practice. The Packers have been one of the best teams in the NFL over the first three weeks and would be a tough out even a full strength. Coach Dan Quinn expressed optimism that Atlanta would get back a number of starters who missed the Bears game, and while that may be the case, the Falcons will still likely be banged up to a degree. The biggest blow for Green Bay is losing wide receiver Allen Lazard, who caught six passes for 146 yards and a touchdown in the Packers' win against the Saints. Lazard played through a core injury in that win, and he is out indefinitely after having surgery on it this week.
