Falcons HB Jerious Norwood And CB Brian Williams Ready To Practice; WR Harry Douglas Ready To Play

Great news today at the Branch:

  • Oft-injured (or is he?) running back Jerious Norwood returned to practice after missing most of training camp and the Chiefs game. A healthy Norwood is a lock to back up Michael Turner and get eight to twelve change-of-pace touches per game.
  • Cornerback Brian Williams, knocked out for the season after sustaining a knee against Chicago last year, finally returned to practice. Williams now finds about 19 young guys crowding his former starting position.
  • Thursday night against the Patriots, slot receiver Harry Douglas will take live snaps for the first time since January 3, 2009. Big things are expected to Douglas, who could take over Michael Jenkins’ role as the third target behind Roddy White and Tony Gonzalez.
