Hooper doesn’t have long-term knee injury 

Hooper played 55 of the 71 snaps (77 percent) against the Packers. He was injured after catching a pass for a 9-yard gain at the two-minute warning. 

“The good news is that nothing is long-term,” Falcons coach Dan Quinn said on Monday. “That’s what we feared yesterday when we did the evaluation, but you don’t know until the next day.

“So that’s some good news on his front. We’ll see where we end up with him for this week. We are definitely not ruling him out since it’s not a long-term issue.”

Hooper has caught 64 of 79 targets for 557 yards and four touchdowns this season.
