The Atlanta Falcons are aiming for their third consecutive win since losing their season opener when they host the San Francisco 49ers this coming Sunday. A few injury notes and updates from Thursday, a day that saw the Falcons head indoors due to heavy rains in the area:
Head coach Mike Smith closed practice off, but did share with reporters several injury updates, including….
ON WR MICHAEL JENKINS: "We would like to get him back as quick as possible. It’s going to be him being cleared by the doctors. He is participating in practice again this week. That participation is much more than what he did last week. He will get evaluated here at the end of the week and we’ll make a decision as we get closer to game time. He has ramped up his reps this week."
ON LB SEAN WEATHERSPOON: "He did not practice again today. He was out. He still has an issue with his (right) ankle. We will try again tomorrow. He worked with our athletic performance people. That’s something that flaired up after the game. We will re-evaluate him on Friday."
