The Atlanta Falcons received some good news during practice Thursday as starting outside linebacker Stephen Nicholas and cornerback Chris Owens were full participants after being limited at practice on Wednesday.

In other injury news, wide receiver Julio Jones was a full participant in practice for the second day in a row as he continues to recover from a lacerated hand.

Defensie tackle Jonathan Babineaux (groin), safety William Moore (hip), running back Antone Smith (hamstring), and center Todd McClure (pectoral) were limited participants for the second day in a row.

Tight end Michael Palmer and running back Lousaka Polite both missed practice for the second consecutive day with shoulder and hamstring injuries, respectively.
