ATLANTA – Shortly before the Atlanta Falcons hold their first ever open practice at Mercedes-Benz Stadium head coach Dan Quinn offered updates on the team’s injury situation.
“We’ll hold three guys today, nothing too serious from that end,” Quinn said. “Takk [McKinley], his shoulder is sore, he’ll be kind of day to day but hopefully soon. We knew we weren’t going to give him all of the contact work early, so we’ll see what it looks like for tomorrow. Ty Sambrailo had a hand [injury], we’re going to hold him out. Ito Smith has foot contusion. All three of those are day to day.”
Both McKinley and wide receiver Calvin Ridley left practice late on Saturday, but Quinn said afterwards he didn’t believe the injuries to be too serious. Despite leaving practice Saturday, Ridley will be suited up on the field with the team Sunday.
“He’ll be here today,” Quinn said.
