Bryant misses practice with back injury

Falcons kicker Matt Bryant, who’s listed with a back injury, did not participate in practice on Thursday, which is normally his kicking day.

Also, Bryant didn’t practice on Wednesday.

Long snapper Josh Harris (hip), linebacker Kemal Ishmael (knee), linebacker Deion Jones (foot) and wide receiver Calvin Ridley (ankle/elbow) were limited in practice.

Cornerback Brian Poole (finger) fully participated in practice.

“He had the full complement of reps that he would normally have and did really well,” Falcons coach Dan Quinn said of Jones. “So we’ll do that again (Thursday) and we’ll keep seeing if we’re making progress but he did an excellent job (on Wednesday).”

If Bryant can’t kick on Sunday, the Falcons have Giorgio Tavecchio on the 53-man roster.
