William Moore injury: Falcons safety returns to practice Saturday

Kevin C. Cox

The safety should be good to go for the Falcons next Sunday after sitting out the past month with a hamstring injury.

The Atlanta Falcons expect to have safety William Moore back in the lineup next week after missing the last four games of the regular season with a hamstring injury. Moore returned to practice on Saturday, and head coach Mike Smith said he expects Moore to be 100 percent when the Falcons take the field next Sunday.

Moore has quietly become one of the best safeties in the NFL, and was playing outstanding this season before going down. He had 75 tackles, four interceptions, and two forced fumbles before getting hurt against the Saints on Nov. 29. The Falcons went 2-2 in Moore's absence.

In addition to Moore, defensive end John Abraham and cornerbacks Dunta Robinson and Christopher Owens are expected to be ready to play next weekend for Atlanta.

The Falcons will host the lowest remaining seed in the NFC playoffs next Sunday at the Georgia Dome, with a shot at hosting the NFC Championship Game on the line.
