The Atlanta Falcons and Cincinnati Bengals released their official Wednesday injury reports and nine players from both teams missed the first practice of the week. We know about Sean Weatherspoon. He has already been ruled out and the super-sub Stephen Nicholas will get another chance to show us why he should be starting instead of Mike Peterson, but I digress. Dunta Robinson is no surprise either as he awaits a Doctor's note before he's allowed to play again after his concussion. Curtis Lofton was limited in practice but that was the case last week and he had no problems against the Eagles, relatively speaking. Justin Peelle will miss four-to-six weeks following surgery to repair a sports hernia and Antone Smith did not practice but I wonder if anyone noticed?
