FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. -- Atlanta Falcons receiver Peerless Price returned to practice Friday despite a foot injury.

Price, who has not missed a game in his five-year career, caught 12 passes for 168 yards and a touchdown last week in a loss to Minnesota. He did not practice Thursday because of a sore right foot, but was back on the field Friday and upgraded to questionable.

Price has played in 69 consecutive games in his pro career.

The receiving corps will be bolstered by the return of Brian Finneran, who missed the last four games with a broken left hand. He will wear a small brace Monday night when the Falcons (1-4) play the Rams (2-2) in St. Louis.

"I just want to play football," Finneran said. "Some catches will be more difficult than others, but I'll try to catch everything."

Meanwhile, linebacker Sam Rogers wasn't able to practice Friday and remains doubtful with a left knee injury. He has missed the last two games. Keith Newman will likely make his second straight start.

Cornerback Tyrone Williams, suspended last week for conduct detrimental to the team, apologized to his teammates and will return to the starting lineup.
