Falcons injury report: William Moore misses practice with hamstring injury

US PRESSWIRE

Safety William Moore joined Asante Samuel as members of the Atlanta Falcons secondary sitting out of practice with injuries.

Coming off the biggest game of his career, Atlanta Falcons safety William Moore appears to be among the team's walking wounded. Moore sat out of Wednesday's practice with a hamstring injury, according to D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Moore was named the NFC Defensive Player of the Week for his two-interception, 13-tackle performance in a win over the New Orleans Saints last week.

The Falcons' secondary is already banged up, as Asante Samuel also missed Wednesday's practice while recovering from a shoulder injury. Samuel started in spite of the injury last week against New Orleans, but left early after re-aggravating the shoulder. His status for this weekend against the Carolina Panthers is up in the air, but it'd probably be a surprise if he started as the team has the NFC South wrapped up and a decent lead in the race for home-field advantage in the NFC playoffs.

Running back Michael Turner was limited in practice with an elbow injury, and defensive tackle Peria Jerry returned to the field on a limited basis.
