Punter Sterling Hofrichter was the only player to show improvement on Thursday, getting in some limited practice time. Falcons special teams coach Bernie Parmalee told the media he was confident that Hofrichter would be able to play on Sunday. It remains to be seen if Julio Jones or Ricardo Allen will be able to take the field against the Chargers, however, as both players missed their second straight practice of the week.

Here is the Falcons' injury report from Thursday:

What it means

The Falcons' Friday injury report will reveal a lot about what to expect this weekend. With this many players on the injury report throughout the week, the Falcons' chances could swing greatly if they have a large contingent of starters out against the Chargers. Julio Jones is one to especially keep an eye on. He was able to play against the Saints, though, so perhaps this is extra rest for Atlanta's star receiver.
