For Falcons, Nicholas, Samuel and White are limited
New Orleans Saints defensive end Glenn Foster and safety Isa Abdul-Quddus sat out a second consecutive practice on Thursday. They both hurt their ankles during the preseason finale against the Miami Dolphins on Aug. 29 and were on stationary bicycles while the rest of their team stretched.
Foster, an undrafted rookie out of Illinois, led the Saints with four sacks in the preseason, and he is one of five defensive ends on New Orleans’ 53-man roster.
Quddus, in his third year with the Saints, is one of five safeties on the team.
Despite being on the injury report filed with the league Thursday, wide receiver Nick Toon (chest), wide receiver Marques Colston (foot), running back Travaris Cadet (foot), right tackle Zach Strief (back), guard Jahri Evans (back), linebacker Kevin Reddick (shoulder) and tackle Terron Armstead (stomach) all fully participated in practice.
As for the Atlanta Falcons, linebacker Stephen Nicholas (thigh), cornerback Asante Samuel (thigh) and wide receiver Roddy White (ankle) were limited on Thursday. The Falcons listed kicker Matt Bryant (back) and center Joe Hawley (unspecified illness) on the injury report, but both were full participants in practice.
