METAIRIE, La. — After a preseason in which the injury report seemed to grow by the day, Wednesday’s list of those not practicing shrunk to just two – Isa Abdul-Quddus and Glenn Foster.
And that means outside linebacker Martez Wilson and Junior Galette practiced.
Wilson (elbow) and Galette (hamstring) missed most of preseason and training camp while healing from their injuries. Both were coy Monday when asked by reporters their status for the week, though Wilson admitted to having been “full go” in practice.
Abdul-Quddus (ankle) and Foster (ankle), meanwhile, were injured in New Orleans’ preseason finale against Miami.
Seven other players were listed on the weekly injury report, but all practiced fully. Receiver Marques Colston (foot), receiver Nick Toon (chest), running back Travaris Cadet (foot), offensive linemen Zach Strief (back), Terron Armstead (stomach) and Jahri Evans (back) and linebacker Kevin Reddick (shoulder) all went through team drills.
For Atlanta, receiver Roddy White (ankle), cornerback Asante Samuel (thigh) and linebacker Stephen Nicholas (thigh) all were limited. Kicker Matt Bryant (back) was full.
