FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. -- Mike Smith didn't get all his players back to full participation, as he had hoped, but the coach still likes the overall health of his Atlanta Falcons heading into Sunday's game against the Green Bay Packers.

Linebacker Sean Weatherspoon and offensive lineman Peter Konz, both of whom were limited during Wednesday's practice, had full participation during Thursday's session. Weatherspoon is coming off a knee injury, Konz a tweaked ankle.

Tight end Tony Gonzalez and safety Zeke Motta were the only two Falcons limited on Thursday. Gonzalez continues to deal with a toe injury but is healthier than he's been in weeks. Motta broke a finger on his right hand and continues to play with a cast.

Roddy White's absence from the injury report for the second straight week means the receiver is close to full strength, although White told ESPN.com his previously sprained right ankle continues to bother him.
