FLOWERY BRANCH – Falcons cornerback Asante Samuel (shoulder) and defensive tackle Peria Jerry (quadriceps) would not have practiced if the team held a full workout on Monday.
The Falcons, because they play on Thursday, were required to release the injury information even though they only held a walk-through practice in the team’s indoor facility.
Wide receiver Harry Douglas (ankle), safety Charles Mitchell (calf), linebacker Stephen Nicholas (knee), tackle Sam Baker (groin), wide receiver Kevin Cone (groin), tight end Michael Palmer (back), defensive tackle Vance Walker (ribs) and linebacker Sean Weatherspoon (ankle) were all limited in practice.
