Atlanta Falcons injury report and transactions – Week 10

Numerous Atlanta Falcons have been banged up throughout the course of the 2017 season. Who will or will not play in the team’s vital Week 10 matchup vs the Dallas Cowboys?

Per Vaughn McClure of ESPN, Head Coach Dan Quinn said that Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones did not practice today (lower leg) but did participate in walkthroughs.

Jones experienced some pain in his leg throughout the Falcons’ loss to the Panthers last week but attempts to play through it and hauled in six receptions for 118-yards. This leg injury may have played a role in Jones’ failure to catch a potential game deciding touchdown late in the fourth quarter against the Carolina Panthers in Week 9.

Falcons kicker Matt Byrant suffered a leg injury in Week 9 that limited his range of field goals. He was able to kick PATs but it plagued the Falcons last Sunday, as on one play the team went for it on 4th &1 as opposed to the 35-yard field goal. Bryant did not practice today is questionable to play against the  Dallas Cowboys this Sunday. Atlanta signed kicker Mike Meyer as a precaution.

Atlanta running back Devonta Freeman has been battling a shoulder injury for two weeks but has played through it. Today at practice, he was limited.

Falcons rookie linebacker Duke Riley had surgery a few weeks ago and the Falcons are still planning a timetable for his return.

The Falcons also recently worked out former Seattle Seahawks defensive back Byron Maxwell. Coach Quinn spoke with ESPN’s McClure regarding Maxwell’s workout along with the possibility of reuniting with the former Seahawks defender in Atlanta.

"`”He certainly looked good,” said Quinn. He looked fit, looked strong, looked healthy. So that part came through really good. I know he’s really anxious to play and get back going.”  “The pro department’s always kind of looking to see who else is there, if there was any roster tweaks to do,” `To upgrade in any way, we’re always going to look for that.”"
