FLOWERY BRANCH -- Wide receiver Russell Gage (ankle), defensive tackle Marlon Davidson (ankle) and safety Erik Harris (calf) did not practice with the Falcons on Wednesday.

The Falcons (1-3) will play the Jets (1-3) at 9:30 a.m. ET Sunday at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London. The team is set to leave for London on Thursday.

“We have to make a decision before we get on the plane, if we are going to be leaving anybody back,” Falcons coach Arthur Smith said. “If that’s in the best interest of their rehab or if we think they have a chance to play, we’ll bring them with us.”

Gage was injured in the Tampa Bay game in Week 2 and has missed the past two games. He was making progress. Davidson was injured in 17-14 win over the New York Giants the following week and missed the Washington game Sunday.

Harris was injured against Washington and was replaced by second-year safety Jaylinn Hawkins.

Olamide Zaccheaus has been playing for Gage, while rookie Ta’Quon Graham has been getting Davidson’s snaps.
