Falcons Vs. Packers: Jonathan Babineaux, Stephen Nicholas Return To Practice

Defensive tackle Jonathan Babineaux (knee) and outside linebacker Stephen Nicholas (calf), who have been out in recent weeks, returned to practice on a limited basis on Wednesday.

Babineaux, a defensive tackle or sees plenty of time in the Falcons' line rotation, suffered a partially torn MCL in his left knee in the season opener versus the Chicago Bears. Since Babineaux has been out, the Falcons have yet to record a sack. Starting outside linebacker Stephen Nicholas suffered a calf injury during practice Sept. 23 and has missed the past two games.

Other injury updates on the Falcons:

Noted as limited on Wednesday: Running Back Jason Snelling (concussion), Safety William Moore (neck) and cornerback Christopher Owens (ankle).

Players who did not practice: Center Todd McClure (knee), wide receiver Roddy White (thigh), tight end Michael Palmer (left ankle) and Cliff Matthews (knee).
