Practice report: WRs Jones, White dressed
By Vaughn McClure
FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. -- Atlanta Falcons receivers Julio Jones and Roddy White were dressed for practice Thursday as the team continued preparation for the New York Jets.
Jones, who has battled some knee and leg issues, did not participate in Tuesday's practice. White continues to recover from a high-ankle sprain.
Running back Steven Jackson, who has been sidelined with a hamstring injury, was on the field in shorts observing his teammates but did not have a helmet. Linebacker Paul Worrilow did the same as he recovers from a knee injury suffered last Sunday.
Not present on the field were cornerback Asante Samuel (thigh), left tackle Sam Baker (knee), and linebacker Akeem Dent (ankle). Dent was spotted wearing a walking boot on his right foot while inside the locker room.
The Falcons will release their initial injury report of the week later.
