The Falcons hit the practice fields in the first week of fall as they prepare to travel to Dallas to play the Cowboys on Sunday. Take a look at these photos of the Falcons at work.
Following a week where he was unable to participate in any capacity, DE Malliciah Goodman (elbow) returned to the practice field on Wednesday as a limited participant.
Among the limited participants were LB Paul Worrilow (calf), NT Paul Soliai(knee), WR Julio Jones (hamstring) and LB Justin Durant (foot).
For the third straight week, WR Devin Hester (toe) has been unable to participate in practice. Head coach Dan Quinn last week emphasized the importance of making sure Hester is back to full strength before he returns.
"When he can feel that explosion that he has without the pain, then we'll know we're ready," Quinn said. "I'm not going to jeopardize for it to be longer in the injury just to have him back out there. He's such a valuable guy for us, and I want to make sure he's at his best."
As expected, RB Tevin Coleman (ribs) and LB Brooks Reed (groin) were held out with their respective injuries.
DE Kroy Biermann was unable to participate for a non-injury related issue.
