FLOWERY BRANCH – Falcons defensive end John Abraham and wide receiver Roddy White returned to practice on Thursday.
Both stars missed practice on Wednesday, Abraham with a groin injury and White with a knee. Abraham leads the Falcons in sacks with eight. White leads the league in catches with 79.
Abraham didn’t play last week against the Rams. The team has been careful with White since he suffered a knee injury, likely a bone bruise, against Tampa Bay on Nov. 7.
Running back Antone Smith (hamstring) was the only player not to practice.
Linebacker Curtis Lofton (knee), defensive tackle Corey Peters (pectoral) and wide receiver/kick return Eric Weems all fully participated in practice.
Safety Shann Schillinger (concussion) was limited.
