Two Falcons who missed Sunday's game against the 49ers, Michael Jenkins and Sean Weatherspoon, were limited in practice on Wednesday. The surprise was seeing Curtis Lofton on the report with a knee injury. This concerns me in a way it didn't used to concern me.
If a player was limited on Wednesday it usually just meant they were resting some bumps and bruises. However, after last week's Weatherspoon fiasco where he went from having a cramp to a minor issue to not practicing all week to missing the game, I don't take anything for granted.
For the love of everything Falcony, I hope Lofton is fine and reduces Peyton Hillis to rubble but his participation - even limited - is concerning. Oh and it'd be nice to see Jenkins and Weatherspoon back too.
