FLOWERY BRANCH — Two more Falcons are now in the league’s concussion protocol. Defensive tackle Elisha Joseph suffered a concussion in Thursday’s game against the Bengals. Wide receiver Kevin Cone suffered a concussion in Saturday’s practice after being hit by safety Shann Schillinger.
In other injury news, cornerback Darrin Walls did not practice Sunday after suffering a soft tissue injury of his upper right leg in Saturday’s practice. He will be evaluated over the next couple of days, according to Smith.
It appeared to be a quadriceps injury.
Cornerback Christopher Owens (hamstring), wide receiver Kerry Meier (leg), running back Jason Snelling (lower right leg) and defensive tackle Corey Peters (foot) continued to work with trainers.
Smith had no firm timetable on when Peters will return from his foot injury.
