Falcons' Tevin Coleman: Limited in Wednesday's practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coleman (ankle) was limited in Wednesday's practice, D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Coleman has yet to break four yards per carry in a given game this season, but his pass-catching chops and red-zone prowess should combine to keep him in the hearts and minds of owners this season. As evidence, he's hauled in 10 of 11 passes in 2016 at a clip of 16.7 YPC, while hitting paydirt three times in Monday night's win at New Orleans. A limited session Wednesday shouldn't hinder his ability to play in Week 4, but he has two practices left to clear up his health.

Falcons' Matt Ryan: Practices in full Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Ryan (thumb) practiced in full Wednesday, D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

While leading the Falcons to victory Monday in New Orleans, Ryan sustained an injury to his left thumb but remained in the contest, completing 20 of 30 passes overall for 240 yards and two touchdowns. Considering the ailment is afflicting his non-throwing hand, Wednesday's uninhibited practice isn't unexpected, and the Falcons will likely give Ryan the all-clear upon releasing the final injury report of the week.

Falcons' Justin Hardy: Finds the end zone against New Orleans
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hardy caught two of two targets for 26 yards and a touchdown in Monday's win over the Saints.

Five Falcons have more catches than Hardy's four, but none of them have more touchdowns, as his two ties a team lead with Julio Jones. The Falcons brought Mohamed Sanu in to be the No. 2 receiver and have a collection of backs and tight ends to throw to, but the little shovel pass Matt Ryan used on Monday to find Hardy for the score was something the team could look to build off of. Coupled with Hardy's nifty touchdown catch off of a deflection in Week 2, it might be possible that the diminutive Hardy can find his niche where taller receivers typically thrive - near the goal line.

Falcons' Sean Weatherspoon: Notches 10 tackles in Monday win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weatherspoon recorded 10 tackles Monday against the Saints.

Weatherspoon now has 19 tackles over his last two games, and is off to a great start in a category he's never surpassed 115 in his six-year career. In his first term with the Falcons, he also intercepted seven passes in his last two full seasons with the team, so it's possible that he moves himself into consideration as fantasy owners if he can string together a couple more solid performances.

Falcons' Mohamed Sanu: Expected to play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

The Falcons expect Sanu, who left Monday's game with a shoulder injury, to play Sunday against the Panthers, ESPN's Ed Werder reports.

Sanu's setback was serious enough to prevent him from returning Monday night, but the team is hopeful that it will not cost him any further action. Sanu's status for Week 4 will likely be determined based on his participation in practice this week.
