That's good news for Atlanta, because it indicates that Julio Jones, Calvin Ridley, Dante Fowler and a number of other important players who appeared on the injury report this week are good to go. McKinley was missing during Atlanta's 40-23 victory against Minnesota, but the Falcons are a better team with the former first-round defensive end on the field.

Here is the Falcons' full injury report from Friday:

What it means

Looking to string together back-to-back wins, the Falcons are about as healthy as could be hoped for as we near the mid-point of the 2020 season. Interim head coach Raheem Morris said he felt McKinley was close to returning, and he did practice in a limited capacity on Friday. He will be the player to monitor on Sunday morning when the list of inactive players is revealed.
