Falcons Vs. Eagles, Week 8: Harry Douglas out, Corey Peters in vs. Philadelphia

The Falcons will face the Eagles without Harry Douglas, but on the defensive side of the ball they gain tackle Corey Peters.


The Atlanta Falcons face the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday, and the Friday injury report indicates they'll do it without the efforts of Harry Douglas. The fourth-year wide receiver is sidelined with a leg injury he sustained late in Atlanta's win over the Oakland Raiders in Week 6. The team was hoping the bye week would allow Douglas to return right away, but that was not the case. The good news for Falcons fans is the return of defensive tackle Corey Peters, who was activated to the 53-man roster on Friday.

The complete Falcons injury report:
Player - position - injury - Friday practice status - game status
(FP = full participation, LP = limited participation, DNP = did not practice)

Jonathan Babineaux - DT - groin - FP - probable
Harry Douglas - WR - knee/ankle - DNP - out
Michael Palmer - TE - shoulder - FP - probable
Garrett Reynolds - OG - back - LP - questionable
Antone Smith - RB - hamstring - FP - probable
