ATLANTA FALCONS

  • Falcons (3-6) vs. Saints at 1 p.m. Sunday, Fox.  Radio: 92.9 FM The Game.
  • Sunday:  After logging three consecutive limited practices, wide receiver Calvin Ridley was not listed with any particular injury designation for Sunday’s game against the Saints, a sign that he will be back in the lineup after missing one game due to a foot injury. There were no players with an injury designation for Sunday, meaning the Falcons should be close to full strength for an important game. Defensive end Dante Fowler is still on the team’s reserve/COVID-19 list, and his absence will be notable for Atlanta, but he could be the only starter out against New Orleans. Injury report.

COMMUNITY

Nearly 200 participants took place in Saturday’s Gary Tillman Memorial Clocktower 5K and Health Walk. A number of modifications and safety guidelines were put in place including a wave start. “We were very pleased with the turnout. Out of roughly 150 registered runners, 121 crossed the finish line and about half of the 70 registered walkers came out,” says Gail Johnson, race organizer. “Everyone seemed to have a great time, stayed socially distanced and masked until on the course, and had a wonderful morning in support of a cause. Many thanks to the sponsors, volunteers, participants and spectators.”

Results should be ready later today, there was a software glitch involving the results and they were not available on Saturday evening. The race benefits The Exchange Club Family Resource Center. For more: TillmanClocktowerRace.org.
