Falcons report: Seven players limited at practice

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. -- While Roddy White (hamstring/ankle), Jason Snelling (ankle), and Stephen Nicholas (quad) were all held out of Wednesday's practice, seven other Atlanta Falcons were limited due to the injuries.

The seven limited players were the following: left tackle Sam Baker (knee), defensive end Osi Umenyiora (knee), guard Garrett Reynolds (knee), linebacker Akeem Dent (ankle), safety William Moore (hip), defensive tackle Peria Jerry (toe), and guard Joe Hawley (elbow). Baker has missed the last three games.

"We anticipated tomorrow that we will get a half a handful of those guys back,'' head coach Mike Smith said. "Probably as full participants tomorrow.''

For Carolina, defensive end Charles Johnson (groin) and running back DeAngelo Williams (quad) did not participate in practice. Linebacker Chase Blackburn (foot), defensive tackle Dwan Edwards (hamstring), and linebacker Thomas Davis (shoulder) were limited.
