Falcons injury report: Moreau, Grant, Ogundeji did not practice

FLOWERY BRANCH -- Falcons right cornerback Fabian Moreau, who has started every game this season, left Sunday’s game against the Bucs with a hamstring injury.

Avery Williams and Kendall Sheffield are listed as his backups, but rookie Darren Hall has been seeing some action recently.

Richie Grant (ankle) and outside linebacker Ade Ogundeji (ankle) also suffered injuries against the Bucs. Moreau, Grant and Ogundeji did not practice Wednesday, according to the team’s official injury report.

“They’ll be day-to-day,” Falcons coach Arthur Smith said Wednesday. “It will probably take those guys one more day of rest. I don’t see any of those being long-term. We’ll just take it day by day.”

Running back Cordarrelle Patterson was given a rest day.

Also, tight end Hayden Hurst (ankle) will return to practice after a stint on the short-term injured reserve, and defensive tackle Jonathan Bullard (ankle) returned to practice.

“He didn’t miss that much of time, but when you haven’t practiced in a couple of weeks, I know Hayden is a professional, so he’ll be in shape,” Smith said of Hurst. “We are just going to see what he looks like today when he’s out there in practice.”
