Highest paid Falcons players (base salaries) for 2019 season

Falcons’ injury updates: Hooper, Jones, Smith   

The Falcons (4-9) are set to play the Arizona Cardinals (3-10) at 1 p.m. Sunday at Mercedes-Benz Stadium.

“He looked like himself, so it was good to see him,” Falcons coach Dan Quinn said. “He looked ready to go, so did Julio (Jones). He looked ready to go today, too. Both of the guys were in good shape.”

Jones missed Thursday’s practice after being sent home with flu-like symptoms. 

Running back Ito Smith, who has a sore knee, was held out of practice Friday. He also has a neck injury and was listed as questionable for the game.

“I’ll get his assessment tomorrow,” Quinn said.

If Smith can’t play, running back Brian Hill will serve as the backup running back to Tevin Coleman.

Also, defensive tackle Terrell McClain (toe) will not play against the Cardinals. 

Defensive tackle Justin Zimmer will receive his snaps.
