A slew of Falcons are set to return to action when the team returns to practice on Saturday.
Safety William Moore, who’s been listed as day to day with a groin injury by Falcons coach Mike Smith, is set to return and could see action against Miami in the third exhibition game next Friday.
“He’s my roommate,” rookie linebacker Sean Weatherspoon said. “He said he’s been feeling pretty good. He’s really excited about this upcoming week because he’s going to get an opportunity to get out there. He’s starting to feel pretty good. He’s excited about it.”
Moore, since being drafted in the second round of the 2009 draft, has had a hard time staying healthy. He missed last season with knee and hamstring injuries. He was slowed during offseason workouts and again early in training camp with the groin injury.
“He was talking about it last night and he’s just ready to get out there,” Weatherspoon said. “We look forward to getting him out there.”
Cornerback Dunta Robinson (hamstring), defensive tackle Peria Jerry (knee), cornerback Brian Williams (knee) and running back Jerious Norwood (hip) are all expected to return against the Dolphins.
