The undefeated Atlanta Falcons look mostly healthy as they prepare for their Week 8 game against the Philadelphia Eagles. Only five players appeared on the injury report Wednesday, and only two missed Wednesday's practice.

Backup receiver Harry Douglas sat out Wednesday with knee and ankle injuries. Douglas injured his ankle in Atlanta's Week 6 win over the Oakland Raiders. He's collected 16 catches for 149 yards this season.

Reserve running back Antone Smith also missed practice Wednesday with a hamstring injury. Smith first injured his hamstring on Oct. 7 against the Washington Redskins. He sat out the Oakland game in Week 6. Smith, a third-year player out of Florida State, has only played in three games this season.

Other Falcons on the injury report included defensive tackle Jonathan Babineaux (groin), tight end Michael Palmer (shoulder) and guard Garrett Reynolds (back). All were limited in practice on Wednesday. Palmer was inactive against Oakland, while Babineaux played.

Atlanta's game against Philadelphia begins at 1 p.m. EST on Sunday.
