The Falcons had four starters who were limited during Wednesday's practice. They were center Todd McClure, linebackers Stephen Nicholas, tackle Jonathan Babineaux and fullback Lousaka Polite.

The Atlanta Falcons had 11 players who were listed on their injury report for Wednesday's practice. Out of those 10, only starting wide receiver Julio Jones was able to fully participate, and he is listed as having a hand injury. There were three starters who were limited on Wednesday: center Todd McClure, linebacker Stephen Nicholas and tackle Jonathan Babineaux.

Babineaux and Nicholas were listed on the injury report last week with the same groin and thigh issues. They both were active in last week's game, and McClure's injury is something new.

The good news on the Falcons depth chart is that cornerback Chris Owens saw action in practice for the first time since he suffered a concussion in Week 2. He only practiced on a limited basis, but that is a big improvement for him getting back on the field.

Starting fullback Lousaka Polite sat out practice again, with the same hamstring injury that had slowed him down previously.
