FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. — Six players were held out of practice Wednesday, the Falcons announced, as they begin to prepare for the Arizona Cardinals matchup.
Wide receiver Mack Hollins did not participate after suffering an ankle injury during Atlanta's Week 9 loss. During the game, he was listed as questionable to return but didn't re-enter.

Keith Smith was a full participant as he continues to work through the concussion protocol. Smith was inactive in Sunday's game.
