Falcons Return Healthy and Ready to Go

The weather is perfect for practice in Flowery Branch as the Falcons prepare for their game against the Titans on Sunday in Nashville. Here are photos of the Falcons at work in Week 7.

For the first time all season, the Falcons had their entire active roster participating in some capacity of practice.

The weekend of rest gave the players a few extra days of rest and recovery after six weeks of tough, physical football.

"For this time of year to have everybody on the roster participating at some part of practice, I couldn't be more pleased with that," Quinn said. "You can tell how hard they work in the training room with the training staff for them to be at their best."

Atlanta's leading tackler, Justin Durant, made his return to the practice field in a limited fashion on Wednesday. Durant suffered an elbow injury against the Texans in Week 4 and has remained on the sideline ever since.

A few of the wide receivers were limited as Leonard Hankerson (ribs/hamstring), Eric Weems (knee) and Julio Jones (foot) all tend to their respective minor injuries.

The Falcons are likely to get their starting center back for Tennessee on Sunday.  Mike Person was able to do some things in practice after a week of recovering from an ankle injury that occurred against the Redskins.

Although William Moore was taken to get x-rays on his hand following the Falcons' most recent game against the Saints, the safety was a full participant in practice.

To continue with the positive news on the injury front; this is the first time that Julio Jones was not listed on the injury report since after the first week of the season.
