FLOWERY BRANCH -- Falcons running back Qadree Ollison, who missed Sunday’s game with a non COVID-19 related illness, is back healthy and returned to practice Wednesday, coach Arthur Smith said.
Ollison, who’s on the practice squad, led the Falcons in rushing against New England on Nov. 18 and was slated to get more playing time against the Jaguars on Sunday before he became ill.
The Falcons rushed for a season-high 149 yards against the Jaguars and will need all of their running backs going against Tampa Bay at 1 p.m. Sunday at Mercedes-Benz Stadium. The Bucs boast the No. 1 rushing defense in the NFL.
