ATLANTA FALCONS

  • Falcons (3-6) vs. Saints at 1 p.m. Sunday, Fox.  Radio: 92.9 FM The Game.
  • Sunday: While Calvin Ridley being listed as limited in practice wouldn’t usually be a good thing, it’s a sign of improvement for the star receiver coming off the bye week. He’s been doing some light running due to a foot injury, but he was able to log at least a limited practice session on Wednesday, the start of Atlanta’s on-field practice week.

    Overall, the Falcons have a very light injury report. That is very good news for a team looking to continue to build momentum and dig out of an early hole. The New Orleans Saints, one of the top teams in the NFC, will likely be without starting quarterback Drew Brees, who is dealing with a variety of injuries, on Sunday, which should benefit Atlanta.
