FLOWERY BRANCH – Falcons tight end Michael Palmer, who suffered a shoulder injury in the win over San Diego on Sept. 23, returned to practice on Monday.
“Missing three games, that’s a long time to be standing on the side lines watching your teammates,” Palmer said. “Luckily, we were able to keep winning so that always makes it easier.”
Palmer didn’t have much of a bye week, either.
“I spent the whole week here getting treatment,” Palmer said. “So it wasn’t too much of a bye week for me. But that’s OK. I’m just ready to get back out there on the field.”
Palmer hopes to be ready to play against Philadelphia.
“I’m hoping to hit the ground running,” Palmer said.
He played in the first three games and has two catches for seven yards. Palmer started against Denver on Sept. 17 when the Falcons opened in a two tight end formation.
