FLOWERY BRANCH–Falcons defensive tackle Peria Jerry (thigh) and cornerbacks Asante Samuel (shoulder) and Dunta Robinson (illness) did not participate in practice today.
Falcons coach Mike Smith said Samuel’s status could be in doubt until just before Thursday’s game against the Saints. Atlanta is scheduled to hold a 35-minute walk-through on Wednesday.
“We’re going to have to go up to game time to see where he’s at in making a decision on whether he’s going to be able to play or not,” Smith said.
“Everything is good and (I’m) just taking it day-by-day,” Samuel said.
Robinson was added to the injury report today. He left Sunday’s game at Tampa Bay with a head injury but later returned.
The Saints players who missed practice are tackle Charles Brown (knee), defensive end Junior Galette (ankle), defensive tackle Tom Johnson (back), safety Isa Abdul-Quddus (concussion) and wide receiver Courtney Roby (shoulder/ankle).
