The Falcons are taking full advantage of their bye week, treating practice this week like training camp in that they’re emphasizing both working on the fundamentals and resting players. There’s no need to rush back players like defensive end John Abraham, (sprained ankle), cornerback Dunta Robinson (concussion) and safety William Moore (hamstring) until next week.
“You want to have the healthiest possible team in the opener of the playoffs,” Falcons coach Mike Smith said on Thursday. “We’ve got some guys who have some bumps and bruises that have gone through a 16-game regular season and need some rest. We’re going to make sure that they’re going to be as healthy as possible.”
