The Practice Report: Falcons Get Back 3 LBs

The Falcons are practicing at the University of Washington as they preapre for their Week 6 matchup with the Seattle Seahawks

The Falcons will conduct all of their practices at the University of Washington this week, and on Wednesday the first injury report presented some encouraging news.

Linebackers De'Vondre Campbell, Deion Jones and Paul Worrilow were able to practice in a limited fashion. Campbell (ankle) has been out since Week 2, and Jones missed Atlanta's Week 5 contest against the Broncos with an ankle injury. Worrilow underwent groin surgery prior to Atlanta's game versus the Saints.

"Now we get the real test where we take them through three days of practice and see how they respond," head coach Dan Quinn said. "Attitude right, mind right is there. If they're available, we'll certainly use them. We won't really know all the way until Saturday."

WR Julio Jones and G Andy Levitre were held out with with knee injuries, with DE Dwight Freeney sidelined for a non-injury related reason.

Quinn is optimistic that he could have his roster at full strength heading into Sunday's game, starting with practice on Thursday.

"The exciting thing is that we could have every player back practicing tomorrow in a full regime," Quinn said. "We are on the upswing in terms of some of the injuries."
