Matt Bryant will not kick on Sunday against the Buccaneers as his right quad injury continues to hamper his return. Shayne Graham will continue to take over the Falcons' kicking duties.
Tight end Tony Moeaki was added to the team's injury report on Thursday as a limited participant with a hamstring injury and was unable to practice Friday. Moeaki was ruled out for the upcoming game in Tampa.
Promising news came to Atlanta's offensive line, as starting right guard Chris Chester was able to practice in a limited fashion after being out for the previous two days of practice with a shoulder injury. Chester's game status is probable.
Linebacker Justin Durant, who was also limited all week, is expected to play this weekend.
The Falcons get return specialist Devin Hester back on the field this weekend for the first time all season. Hester was activated to the 53-man roster Friday afternoon.
