The Falcons health report for Friday, Oct. 29
It’s finally Friday, as both the Atlanta Falcons and Carolina Panthers hold their final practices of the week. On Sunday, the divisional opponents will face off in a very important matchup which will either end with the Falcons going above .500 for the first time since 2017 or the Panthers breaking their four game losing streak. We’ve been monitoring the injury reports all week, and now it’s time to view Friday’s practice report.
You can expect to see the injury reports here every Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, except for when the Falcons play on Thursday night or have a bye week.
- CB Avery Williams (hamstring)
- CB A.J. Terrell (concussion)
- OT Cameron Erving (neck)
- FB Giocanni Ricci (concussion)
- OT Trent Scott (finger)
- CB CJ Henderson (shoulder) QUESTIONABLE
- LB Shaq Thompson (foot) QUESTIONABLE
- C Matt Paradis (back)
- WR Terrace Marshall Jr. (concussion) OUT
- DE Darryl Johnson (hamstring) OUT
As the title of the article suggests, the Falcons will head into Sunday will their active roster at full health. For back-to-back days, A.J. Terrell and Avery Williams both practiced in full and have no injury designations heading into Sunday’s game. Terrell left last weeks game against the Miami Dolphins with what was labeled a neck injury, and has since been called a concussion, so his quick turnaround is great news. Williams has been inactive since Week 4 due to a hamstring injury.
The Panthers have a much more questionable injury report, as receiver Terrace Marshall Jr. and Darryl Johnson have already been ruled out. One thing to monitor heading into Sunday is both linebacker Shaq Thompson and corner C.J. Henderson, who were limited on Friday but designated as questionable due to their specific injuries.
You may have noticed a name has been removed who was on Thursday’s practice report for Carolina. Shortly after Thursday’s practice report came out, the Panthers placed defensive tackle Daviyon Nixon on injured reserve due to a knee injury.
We’ll hope good health makes a difference for the Falcons Sunday.
