Falcons vs. Rams practice injury report: Devonta Freeman returns to practice

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. -- After missing Tuesday's practice, running back Devonta Freeman (knee) and wide receiver Julio Jones (ankle/ribs) returned to practice in a limited capacity.

Wide receiver/ return specialist Andre Roberts was the only Falcon to not practice for the second straight day with a knee/ankle injury. If Roberts is unable to go on Saturday, Taylor Gabriel is the backup punt returner and Justin Hardy is the backup kick returner.

Falcons coach Dan Quinn was asked if there's any concern about Roberts' injury as they get closer to game day.

"I think any time guys are dealing with an injury as a coach, yeah, that's our job to have the contingency plan to be concerned," Quinn said. "But at the same time, I know who these guys are, I know where they're at, and I've got a lot of confidence in where they're headed."

Wide receiver Taylor Gabriel (hamstring), center Alex Mack (calf), defensive end Adrian Clayborn (calf) and tight end Levine Toilolo (knee) were also limited on Wednesday.
