Falcons' Jordan Tripp: Ruled out vs. Patriots
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tripp (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Patriots, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

Trip was in concussion protocol throughout this week of practice, so it's no surprise to see him sidelined for Sunday's contest. The linebacker will have to log at least one practice next week to have a chance to return for Week 8.

Falcons' Jermaine Grace: Ready for Sunday's contest
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grace (hamstring) practiced without limitations Friday and will be ready for Sunday's game against the Patriots, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

Grace hasn't touched the game field since Week 2 against the Packers, where he played strictly in special teams scenarios. Top middle linebacker Deion Jones rarely leaves the field, so don't expect Grace to log many defensive snaps or be a relevant fantasy option.

Falcons' Courtney Upshaw: Gearing up for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Upshaw (ankle) was a limited participant in Friday's practice but will be ready to play Sunday against the Patriots, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

Upshaw will make his first appearance since leaving after the first snap in Week 2 against the Packers. His starting role has been waiting for him during his absence, and it'll be interesting to see how he reacts to a full workload. Upshaw should be considered a wait-and-see IDP option for the time being.

Falcons' Matt Bryant: Cleared for Sunday night
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bryant (back) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game in New England, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

Bryant played through the same injury last week, connecting on a 50-yard field goal but missing a 59-yarder. While he won't have the comfort of kicking in a dome this weekend, the Falcons should have plenty of scoring opportunities against a shaky New England defense.

Falcons' Mohamed Sanu: Cleared to face Pats
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Though he remained limited at Friday's practice, Sanu (hamstring) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game in New England, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

A week 5 bye allowed Sanu to miss only one game while recovering from an injury that came with a timetable of two-to-three weeks. Sunday will mark exactly three weeks since he injured his hamstring, and he'll draw a favorable matchup against a banged-up New England secondary that was struggling even when it was healthy.
