WR Hester Returns to Practice

As the Falcons begin preparations for Sunday's Week 4 matchup against the Houston Texans, RB Tevin Coleman (ribs), WR Julio Jones (toe/hamstring) and TE Jacob Tamme (concussion) were unable to participate in Wednesday's practice.

WR Devin Hester (toe) was able to participate in a limited fashion for the first time of the 2015 regular season.

Head coach Dan Quinn provided a number of injury updates prior practice where he displayed optimism when talking about the status of Coleman and Hester.

"RB Tevin Coleman will be out today. We're getting closer, but we're still not there yet," Quinn said. We're going to hold out WR Julio Jones and WR Jacob Tamme is going through concussion protocol."

LB Brooks Reed was limited in practice and has a shot to play on Sunday, per Quinn.

RB Devonta Freeman (toe) and S Ricardo Allen (knee) joined Reed and Hester in the limited participation category.
