Falcons Pro Bowl defensive tackle Grady Jarrett, who suffered a hip injury against the Bears and didn’t finish the game, was back at practice Friday.

Also, defensive end Dante Fowler (ankle) and wide receiver Calvin Ridley (ankle) were back at practice after missing Thursday’s padded practice.

Kicker Younghoe Koo, safety Keanu Neal (hamstring), safety Ricardo Allen (elbow) and defensive end Takk McKinley (groin) and rookie defensive tackle Marlon Davidson (knee) did not practice.

Wide receiver Julio Jones, right tackle Kaleb McGary and cornerback Kendall Sheffield, who all returned to practice Thursday, were back for a second consecutive day.

Jarrett played 44 of the 82 defensive snaps (54%) against the Bears. He was having a strong game before he left and was not on the field during the fourth-quarter collapse.

He had four tackles, a sack, two tackles for loss and two quarterback hits before suffering the injury.

He leads the team with 2.5 sacks and five quarterback hits on the season.

After playing the Bears without six starters, the Falcons (0-3) are set to face the Packers (3-0) at 8:15 p.m. Monday at Lambeau Field.
